I have a question regarding the exercise 61 DYI in the revision kit.
Would I have the full mark if for the yield variance instead of calculating what should have yielded 8400 litres, Means 8000-7800 = 200 (A) then multiplied by standard cost $2.1 resulting to an adverse variance of $420. I calculated what is the standard mix for 7800 litres, resulting to 8190 then 8400-8190=210 (A) and multiplied by the weighted standard cost of 2 (210/105). I had the same answer $420.
Thanks in advance for your answer.

You must ask questions like this in the F5 Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture. Also, you do not say which Revision Kit you are referring to – there are several!!
However if you got the same answer then that is fine – there is more than one way of getting the answer and it does not matter which way you do it.

example 4 says .. calculate the total sales margin variance.. it sells 3 products A,B,C.In the solution they used standard cost p.u to calculate profit of each product for actual sales though each product cost(actual) vary from budgeted cost.

We have to use standard costs.
Difference in actual costs would be dealt with in the normal cost variances.

another question sir..in the solution the budgeted figure is not flexed to actual results to calculate sales margin variance..i can’t understand why ??

The sales margin variance is the different between actual profit and budget profit (with costs being kept at standard). (Just as is the total sales variance in ‘basic’ Paper F2 variances).
Just as with basic variances it is then analysed into the sales price variance and the sales volume variance. Because there are several products, the volume variance is analyses into sales mix and sale quantity variances.
