    Paper was ok. I wasted some time calculating ratios that had been given in question one but thanks be to God I picked up the mistake quickly. I pray for a simple pass. Thanks opentuition for all the resources that you freely avail to us!

    I ran out of time. Had to write only part answers.

    Thought it was hard.

    No specific models or technique tested, however focus on understanding of case…

    Found the paper very hard.. Gave it my all.. Wrote whatever came to my mind.. Question 3 and 5 in particular were very difficult.. Took me a few minutes to decide which one to go for.. Hopefully I’ve done enough to pass.. Good luck everyone.

    fair, bt found myself doing the things tht the board didn’t want hear…things like increase in the ratios and went on explaining the causes of the increase and fall. Think I messed up!!

    I think I messed up the question on Eva, I deducted the r and d costs etc from nopat instead of adding back which is so annoying as I knew that. Got a negative 17 for the Eva which is totally wrong, will I lose marks for explanation based on my figure?

    Fair paper but lengthy scenarios especially q1 and 2
    Questions are mainly scenario related with no specific model
    Absence of current developments and models
    Looking for marginal pass, Hope every one got through

    Q1. Little help from examinator. All ratios have been calculated in script. Division performance evaluation
    Q2. Budgeting. Incremental, Rolling, Activity Based, Beyond Budgeting.
    Q3. EVA.
    Q4. Business failure. Argenti
    Q5. Related to spec theory never seen before.

    me (45…55)

    @ saidco2010 : yes my EVA was also negative. But paper was a disaster. I attempted Sec B first and did Q3 and Q4. Q1 and Q2 scenarios were too lengthy. I left 18 marks and couldn’t complete the paper on time :( hope I get pass Inshallah

    It is not hard (as well as p5 is rather easy in comparison with the other professional papers). Still the main problem as always is time pressure and to remember to pick up easy marks. I hope to get above 50.

    sm1 tell me how they attacked qtn1 i. If I briefly talked abt the movements in the ratios and then explained the cause, wd I get marks or?
