    Dear Sir

    I just have quick question that stems from an example question I encountered on budgeting in the Kaplan exam kit.

    The question is in three parts: a (5 marks), b (10 marks) and c (5 marks) and is purely written. I understand that it may not be completely representative of an exam question, but, in answering such a question, if I put down some points in a seemingly sensible attempt to answer say part a, but the actual answer in the back of the book includes those points for part of the answer to say part b, would the examiner still give me the marks for those points?

    Cheers

    A

    PS Hope that makes some kind of sense.

      You might get some credit, but only some.

      (a) and (b) would have been asking for different things and so given answers to (b) as part of the answer to (a) would suggest that you had misunderstood what was being asked.
