    labor variance 7 marks gone
    comparison private and public organisation 5 marks gone
    and last but not least…linear programming…20 marks gone

    duong:

    a bit late for you, I guess, but the lectures on variances are there:

    Labour variance :-s don know how to calculate but i did it :-s through 2200/2*1.5 for LCD something like that

    Question 3 was easy but i moved scale outside rather than inner side :( how much marks i loss?

    Question 2 was ok but too lengthy

    Question 4 was easy one but i am confused about driver :-s

    Question 5 was just ok

    InshaAllah passed :)

    Easy! I was literally laughing during the reading time! :) Such an easy paper. Though I’m sad because I prepared for difficult topics, like Time Series Analysis, Learning Curve… the paper was not challenging.

    Although, I somehow guessed that the new examiner will play.. I mean… see ABC and Linear Programming were both examined in June 2010, too. A lot of students would have thought that those were unlikely.

    So, here is the format:

    Q1. Variance Analysis (basic!)
    Q2. Performance measurement (both financial and non-financial)
    Q3. Linear programming
    Q4. Activity Based Costing
    Q5. Budgeting

    labour rate variance: 4,950 (A)
    labour efficiency variance: 6,XXX – 4,950 (6,XXX i don’t remember but it’s on question)

    Is that correct? Sbd has same answer??

    Question not too difficult but I did not well at all, don’t know why that was,,, hmmmm. Only hope passing rate.

    Congratulations to all of you,we did it!=)

    Could someone confirm my calculations:
    Linear programmiong: x=2 000, y=333,33 ?
    Please tell me that is correct…)

    Horrible. Linear programming was my Waterloo. Can anyone get 50 over 80? Never mind. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Linear programming… really didn’t expected.
    Labor variances as well were a bit challanging.

    Hi guys,

    well done to all. We can all now relax.
    Q1 was fine but made a mess on the labour rate/efficiency variance
    Q2 was good
    Q3 was a big struggle made by myself for not drawing the diagram clearly. The constraints I think I did well with but the optimal point was unclear. Kaplan book didn’t teach how to calculate slack, and the shawdow price didn’t work for me. Any points on this question is a bonus for me.
    Q4 was good
    Q5 was good

    I hope for a pass!!!

    Dear, Kaplan did teach how to calculate slack.

    Exactly. I left a comment within the paper about learning curves…
    and man i learned Time Series analysis… I must say the paper could have been challenging.

    Liked Q2.

    paper was too easy. i had prepared for difficult topics like learning curves and time series. the time was not enough at all. how does some one exhaustively answer such a paper with all that kind of theory in 3hrs? the exam was about apportioning time correctly. i left a whole 20marks on linear programming!! i know, God be with me. soooo sad!!!

    Straightforward – and nice to have the answers to check your work on the variances.

    It was a little long and I’m dying with bronchitis which made it hard to concentrate at times but even still I would expect to do very well.
