    Exam tips are out! Enjoy but do not rely on them.

    Kaplan

    Q1
    Consolidated statement of financial position (with possible statement of profit or loss). Adjustments to
    include: PURP, share exchange, current accounts, impairment, revaluation, fair value adjustment
    Q2
    Published accounts to include statement of profit or loss, statement of financial position and statement
    of changes in equity from trial balance. Possible adjustments to include: revenue recognition,
    depreciation, revaluation, tax & deferred tax, convertible loan, share issue.
    Q3
    Statement of cash flows with interpretation element.
    Q4/Q5
    Qualitative characteristics, finance leases, intangible assets, events after the reporting date, earnings
    per share.

    BPP

    There will be 5 questions in the exam, all compulsory. The first 25-mark question will cover a consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income and/or consolidated statement of financial position, and may include a written part. Q2 and 3 will also be 25 marks, Q2 covering preparation of single entity financial statements, likely from a trial balance. Q3 is usually set in the context of interpretation and often includes a statement of cash flows, likely at this sitting.
    The conceptual framework is often part of Q4 or 5 so it is an area you need to ensure you are familiar with. Inflation, discontinued operations, deferred tax, leases, intangible assets, government grants or financial instruments are possible topics for Q4 and 5 this sitting.

    Hey Ansi

    Thanks for this!

    I can remember seeing something similar to these tips before but they also had Past Paper questions references next to the tips as possible similar questions, does this exist?

    Thanks

    :) i haven’t seen such tips angelo.

    So i am afraid i can’t help you with that.

    however, without any big effort u could help yourself by opening the kit and actually practicing questions that cover the topics that are mentioned among these tips :) Kits nowadays are quite user friendly.

    best of luck!

    Thanks for these.

    Definitely not enjoying cash flow at the moment. My problem is I am perfectionist with balancing stuff when I am revising and in hindsight probably spent too long focussing on questions 1 & 2 which seems to be a common crime from reading around.

    Also pray construction contracts are nowhere to be found!

    I miss NPV and WACC from F9!
