Failed with 35% and just can’t believe that. I answered everything as best I could. Had major issues on the day with the CBE. Started exam so late and had invigilator and students talking throughout exam. Just so upset and didn’t feel like I got a fair shot at the exam at all. Dreams of getting qualified are getting further away…March 4, 2020 at 4:17 pm
Not a chance on this earth have I passed this exam. CBE in Birmingham was a complete disaster. People were starting the exam in stages so had so many distractions in the room, the invigilators were on the phone throughout the exam chatting away to ACCA. Didn’t start my exam until 10:05am and some students hadn’t even started at 11:30am. When I left, the 1:00pm students were waiting outside, who knows what time they managed to get started?
It was so disruptive and when I finally managed to read the content and a question, a student would get up and move and I would see it out the corner of my eye and lose all trail of thought. My answers were diabolical. I’m so frustrated with how bad it went because I could have easily passed this exam. Cheers ACCA…January 13, 2020 at 2:04 pm
First attempt, failed at 46%. Only did 3 days revision so cannot complain with only just missing the pass mark. Resitting in March and am ready to smash it.January 13, 2020 at 2:02 pm
Passed 57% first attempt, I am shocked because the content of this exam is absolutely ridiculous! But so happy I got it done.December 3, 2019 at 2:58 pm
Think you had to mention to add degrouping charge to the sales proceeds as NGNL transfer was made within 6 years of sale.
What did people write about sole trader keeping his building on incorporation? I said that the incorporation relief didn’t apply anymore but not sure if that’s right :/
I put the same!!December 3, 2019 at 2:57 pm
Guys what have you written for Chargeable gain implications in respect of sale of subsidiary?
Degrouping charge added onto the sale proceeds but gain will probably be exempt under SSEDecember 3, 2019 at 2:38 pm
Oh dear! Confusing or what? I think this will be a March job …
With you on that oneDecember 3, 2019 at 2:37 pm
Well that was absolutely awful.
Why is it when you leave the exam room you all of a sudden know exactly what the question was asking but when you’re in there you just have a brain fart!!December 2, 2019 at 8:21 pm
Oh no. After reading all these comments I don’t feel as though I have written professionally enough or covered enough area to obtain a pass. Everything I commented on was pretty obvious and basic and definitely didn’t write enough about the audit risks. I really struggled to find them. Ethics was fairly straightforward but now I’m questioning whether I did that well enough!October 14, 2019 at 12:50 am
I can’t believe it but I passed with 61%.
Was absolutely certain I had failed and was planning on resitting in Dec!
Chuffed to bits considering the paper was absolutely awful.
Well done to all who have passed and keep going to those who didn’t manage it this time, you will get it so just keep going!September 5, 2019 at 3:53 pm
Well I may aswell book in for a resit.
Q1 and Q2 were ok. Definitely not enough there for me to get a pass. So frustrating as I’ve worked so so hard and it just seems Section B wasn’t at all logical.March 3, 2018 at 11:46 am
I have already watched the free lectures on Relevant Costing and this is not stated, it is only stated that the wage for the salary supervisor is not relevant as it would be paid regardless.
Hence why I felt the same about this question because if they are not pulled off their work, they are still paid the $8 per hour either way.
I understand what you are saying regarding the labour now but it’s not made obvious in the lecture, I stopped the lectures at every point possible to write down my own notes and it is not in my notes regarding variable labour.
Thank you for the explanation.February 27, 2018 at 5:05 pm
It’s just horrendous, I don’t know why it won’t stick in my brain. It seems really logical when I watch the lectures but I just can’t put the method into practice! I so wish I didn’t have to do this one
