Tips for ACCA Paper P2 Dec 2013 exams
- Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows (long time since asked!) OR tent structure including a foreign subsidiary (35 marks); 8 marks of corporate governance and 7 marks chat about management commentaries
- Scenaria question with 4 problem areas worth 5 – 7 marks each with up to 12 references to IAS / IFRS. Occasionally, the directors will have proposed an appropriate treatment – just occasionally! So, be aware that the proposed action may in fact be ok – it’s not always a poor choice by the directors
- Similar to question 2 – a scenaria question with 3 – 4 parts worth anywhere from 5 – 12 marks with up to 6 references to IAS / IFRS
- Current issue question – the last 3 have been on proposed revision to IAS 37 Provisions and Contingencies, IFRS 13 Fair Values and heavy discussion about how much disclosure is “enough” and how much is “too much”. There hasn’t been a 25 marker on Management Commentary since it started to become a fashionable discussion topic
