Please REFLECT on the ethical implications of your action – and how it might implicate me as the moderator and OpenTuition as the vehicle for disseminating this information.
Unit 8 is the FINAL ASSESSMENT which ACCA does not even share with tutors.February 23, 2020 at 5:31 pm #562834nimuwanjih
I have been stuck on how to answer the Telford engineering impact on net profit after implementation of the six strategies.Kindly guide me.February 24, 2020 at 8:13 am #562904Kim SmithKeymaster
As I said, this assessment is not shared with tutors – you have to read the instructions carefully – for example, using the given profit or loss statement as the basis for analysis and assuming all costs are fixed except materials. Then you should consider the impact of each strategy independently.February 29, 2020 at 5:57 pm #563584seamusshanley
For the answers on strategic options are they looking for the total net profit after changes occurred one year after MEXIT or is it just the change of the expense/sales vales themselves? Getting stuck on these questions alsoMarch 1, 2020 at 7:59 am #563609Kim SmithKeymaster
As a tutor I do not have access to the module itself but I believe each Q may ask for something slightly different.
Calculate the forecast net profit …. to the nearest $??? .. would be asking for the $ profit – take care with any “nearest” instruction .
Calculate the …. cost …. is looking for $ cost
Calculate … as a percentage of sales …. (to the nearest whole percentage)
etcMarch 4, 2020 at 7:25 am #564068Kim SmithKeymaster
Please note that the ask the tutor forums are a free service – not a 24/7 answering service.
If you have read the posts on this thread you should know that I do not have the answers to give you and I and ACCA would ask you to REFLECT on the ethical and professional issues raised by your request.
It may be that to get the correct answer you need to read the instruction carefully and enter it in a specified format.March 25, 2020 at 7:00 am #565708harooon
please let me know the answersMarch 25, 2020 at 7:18 am #565714Kim SmithKeymaster
Please REFLECT on the ethics and professional you exhibit by this request. If you take the time to read my advice on this post – in particular to work through the illustration in the module (details on my previous posts) – you can complete the module. See also my prompts on this post https://opentuition.com/topic/ethics-and-professional-skills-module-unit-7/ – other students have managed to complete the module themselves.March 27, 2020 at 3:32 pm #565992imran95
is there any chance where you can practice this sort of questions like Telford engineering? Any help would be much appreciated. ThanksMarch 27, 2020 at 4:24 pm #565994Kim SmithKeymaster
Not exactly – I think that’s rather the point that as in real life you have to bring assumed knowledge and skills together to tackle a case as it is presented to you. In terms of making projections of the effects of something on profit, I would say that PM/(F5) or even MA/(F2) are most relevant – e.g. you need to understand cost behaviour (fixed v variable), contribution, budgeting, difference between mark-up and margin, etc. If you need help remembering any of these concepts you will find that you can easily search for key words in OpenTuition’s MA/PM notes.March 27, 2020 at 4:57 pm #565998dhaval86

dhaval86 – as I have suggested to those who have made similar posts it is unprofessional/unethical to make such a request – certainly it is unbecoming of anyone who aspires to the credential ACCA. Read the posts for hints and tips by all means but the final assessment must be properly attempted – otherwise you will not benefit from it – which defeats its object.April 2, 2020 at 10:24 am #566363shuyel
I hope I control my wording enough that i didn’t act unprofessional/unethical to answer on this Telford engineering question that takes me days to stare at excel to calculate all possiblilities of what I could have misunderstand from the question. The problem lies with how the question is formed and how we decode it.
Example, my first impression is copy all the information of current(post-MEXIT) value, make changes according to the strategies and “sum up all the figures”. This is exactly where it went wrong. I still figuring out the 1st strategy but I can say that trying out strategy 3 & 4 first will less likely to cause u to distrust on your capability.
The key is, to read it carefully – e.g. “treat each strategic option as totally independent” …. “use the following profit or loss statement as the basis for your analysis” – i.e. build on this to analyse each option – don’t work out each scenario from scratch. Also, “Assume that costs are fixed apart from ….” means those costs don’t change unless you’re told otherwise. Hope this tips helps you break the invisible wall due to difference in decoding question. All the best.April 2, 2020 at 9:14 pm #566395Anonymous
I wanted to share my comments on this. I spent the best part of a day trying to figure out the ‘predicted sales’ value, using regression analysis. I realised where I was going wrong – I made the mistake of not reading the ‘barbecue sales’ example in section 5 thoroughly enough. I went back to this example, several times and really worked through the information provided. Once I had done this, the penny dropped! You can apply the same technique as the barbecue example to the actual question. Y = aX1 + bX2 + cX3 and so on. You’ve already got the variables so just plug those in.
I came on here to find some guidance as I was really stuck, and Kim Smith’s messages helped me a lot – thank you very much!
People simply wanting to be told the answers make me laugh. If I was an employer, I’d definitely not be hiring those not willing to put in the work…
Best of luck!April 19, 2020 at 9:49 am #568732tiffany1608

I cannot help with so vague a request – I suggest you read through my responses on the posts which refer to unit 8 on this forum.April 25, 2020 at 8:11 pm #569234linaskvarcinskiene
do we need to calculate volumes of production to answer unit 7 questions? thanks for the advice. LinaApril 26, 2020 at 8:34 am #569256Kim SmithKeymaster
There is no production in the end-of-unit assessment for unit 7 – it is a service provider not a manufacturer.April 29, 2020 at 6:10 am #569468nikit.mittal
Please guide me what’s the requirement in Module 8. Do they require us to calculate Net profit or only changes in the sales and material cost?
Thanks in advance.April 29, 2020 at 7:31 am #569471Kim SmithKeymaster
Please see my posts on February 24 and March 1 nearer the beginning of this thread. All I can say, not having seen the final assessment myself is that you must read carefully for all clues how to calculate correctly what is required and answer in the specified format.May 7, 2020 at 8:54 am #570208aqis
Please can someone contact me on my email DELETED because I want some help with unit 7 strategy analysis questions. ThanksMay 7, 2020 at 1:37 pm #570244Kim SmithKeymaster
aqis – please see the forum rules – you are asked not to use the forums for personal messaging. If you read the posts on this forum which reference unit 7 you should find suitable responses to help you with the popular questions.May 12, 2020 at 6:24 am #570597R89dup
Thing I missed was they are asking for the EFFECT on Net profit. Read carefully! Took less than 10 minutes to complete it all after I re-read the red page of instructions.May 15, 2020 at 8:44 pm #570970necksha
Hello, did you manage with unit 8, 6 questions on strategic options?? very difficult 🙁 if possible helpMay 16, 2020 at 8:06 am #570997Kim SmithKeymaster
The comment by shuyet on the first page of this thread (this is the 2nd page) on 2 April 2020 is probably most informative – each strategy to be considered independently and ready carefully the requirements.May 21, 2020 at 8:37 pm #571524fatssk93
Can anyone provide guidance on how to answer all 6 questions as this is proving difficult.
Thanks in advance

You saved me!!!!The magic word is EFFECT!! I was trying for hours and I thought that I’m stupid!
Thank you so much!!July 16, 2020 at 2:02 pm #576986onesadi28
