It is impossible to define a level! It is only normal school arithmetic really, and you perform most of the calculations using the spreadsheet provided.

Hello, I plan on sitting for this paper in March 2022. Could you please tell me if these lectures are good for that attempt since I would be highly relying on these lectures.

@shamaun1619 I have the same plan as you concerning March 2022. For me, I think you should practice exam standard questions as much as you can in addition to the videos.

In future please ask this kind of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture.

A normal calculator should have a square root button. However that is not what your first question seemed to be asking, and to take a 5th root (or to calculate something to an unusual power) then you must have a scientific calculator, and of course you can use it in the exam.

CALCULATION USING NORMAL CALCULATOR : Step 1 : Underroot 12 times Step 2 : subtract 1 Step 3 multiply with number in the power ( in above case 1/5)(in case of 3 times root 1/3) ( or in case of 2/3 multiply by 2/3) Step 4 : add 1 Step 5 : press x= (multiply sign and equal to) 12 times The result would be the answer Try with number 32 as it has result 2 ( follow the above steps)( in india we do like this)

I have passed AFM in the examination attempt of June 2019 and attained 65 marks. The credit goes to you for this success. The method of your teaching would make difficult concepts of AFM much more easier to me to understand and learn.

Thank you once again, many prays and best wishes for you.

previous material on open tuition has really helped in passing my exams and am looking forward to use AFM materials for my forthcoming exam in December

Yes you can 🙂 Sorry for the late reply, but I do not always see comments here. You should ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum and then you are guaranteed a fast reply.

Hi Mr moffat,

please can you tell me what is the mathematics level needed to tackle the afm paper

thanks,

frederick

axel.frederick says

Dear Mr Moffat,

thank you for your reply.

i was asking because i thought there were calculus or any topics from an A level mathematics involved in this paper

Reagrds,

frederick

John Moffat says

There is certainly no calculus and no advanced arithmetic 🙂

chunter says

Good day, is it Mar 2022 you’re taking the exam because your posting has apr 2022 on it, I’m doing the exam in Dec 2022

Thank you sir!

John Moffat says

No problem 🙂

mmlim2003 says

5?(4722/3570)

May i ask how to compute the above using normal calculator than scientific calculator? Between, can we use scientific calculator for AFM exam?

mmlim2003 says

5?(4722/3570)

mmlim2003 says

4722/3570 square root 5

I tried the BPP question on MIRR calculation…Noticed that such complicated formula and hardly compute using normal calculator..

CALCULATION USING NORMAL CALCULATOR :

Step 1 : Underroot 12 times

Step 2 : subtract 1

Step 3 multiply with number in the power ( in above case 1/5)(in case of 3 times root 1/3) ( or in case of 2/3 multiply by 2/3)

Step 4 : add 1

Step 5 : press x= (multiply sign and equal to) 12 times

The result would be the answer

Try with number 32 as it has result 2 ( follow the above steps)( in india we do like this)

The lectures are okay but lectures notes are unable to be download, kindly assist.many thanks

John Moffat says

They are downloadable without problem!

anujaswar says

Could you tell me changes in AFM for September 2019???

John Moffat says

In future please ask this kind of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture.

The only change is the addition of initial coin offerings (crypto currencies) to the list of sources of finance.

jessica40 says

I cant download these notes please help

jimmybutt says

Unfortunately these cannot be downloaded which is the negative factor

alyaa123 says

Sir…i have followed your lectures alone for f5 and ur notes….it is.the reason for me to clear my paper….thankyou so much sir
