I always try to stick to my time and generally, that takes me to making all the adjustments, but not actually putting in all the values into the CSOFP. Will I loss alot of marks for not finishing this part of the question.
It might seem very stupid, as the question asks us to prepare the CSOFP, but in reality, the adjustments and workings take most of the time and it takes maybe 5-10 minutes to finish the actual CSOFP.
Hence my question, If I make all the adjustments and do all the workings, but I don’t put these into the CSOFP because I need to move onto another question, and I don’t get time to come back and finish the question, will I lose most of my marks. I understand that most of the marks come from the workings, but the examiner asks for the CSOFP and if thats incomplete, I fear that he may be very harse on me.
What would you do Mike? I know you have experience in marking these papers, so your insight will surely help.
Think! If you prepare a CSoFP without any workings – do you think you’ll get any marks? No, neither do I.
The marks are in your workings! So long as your workings clearly show the effect of how you would adjust the draft figures, that should be enough!
Thank god mike. I can sleep soundly tonight……………or maybe leave that for tomorrow night
yes, leave it until tomorrow
