I really wasn’t expecting the NPV question about the joint probability, just had practice about 1-2 times only…. Should have revised Text rather than revision kit. Ruined all of my marks. Not a good expectation about the result….. thinking of reading again….. F9.
Reading again It was a disaster for me… Should I read again? And take again in june ??March 9, 2018 at 4:36 pm
what a disaster section C;
Was expecting a WACC, working capital and/or NPV investment appraisal as per the previous past papers.
Never even heard of joint probablities tables before.March 9, 2018 at 4:41 pm
hi guys, what questions came up on section C of the paper? i am sitting in june 2018 and would appreciate any advice please thank youMarch 9, 2018 at 4:45 pm
There was an expected NPV with joint probabilities. And TERP, rights issue and debt finance of business expansion.March 9, 2018 at 4:46 pm
What a disaster! This is going to be my first fail… I am so dissappinted as I studied really hard and completely ruined the joint probabilities question- I never came across it! What did you guys get for the WACC calculation? And how did you comment on the behaviour of WACc if the conversion was taken out? I hope you did better than I did!March 9, 2018 at 4:49 pm
Is the CBE different to the paper exam? As I didn’t have any joint probabilities question…March 9, 2018 at 4:52 pm
Where did you sit your exam? I know that the computer based exam had at least 2 versions as the guy that sat next to me
had completely different questions.March 9, 2018 at 4:52 pm
What did you choose at the first question? b) ?March 9, 2018 at 4:55 pm
In Manchester. I hope so, unless I’ve missed something 😀March 9, 2018 at 4:55 pm
Also Islamic finance,
And simulation, risk adjusted discount rates and discounted payback.March 9, 2018 at 4:58 pm
In Manchester. I hope so, unless I’ve missed something 😀
Haha yes don’t worry. I panicked when he started asking me about islamic finance question I was like whaaaat! But then we worked out the questions were completely differentMarch 9, 2018 at 5:17 pm
Hello there what interest rate you taken in irpt McQ borrowing or depositMarch 9, 2018 at 5:17 pm

In uk paper version is no more from March session. Only cbe. Gave my first CBE . Found it hard for long questions but for mcq cbe is goodMarch 9, 2018 at 5:25 pm
Why you guys think joint probablities was hard? Ok smth different than usual but i see most of you being stressed because of that question.March 9, 2018 at 5:26 pm

I simply never came across it and could not work out how to tackle it….March 9, 2018 at 5:47 pm
I got section B: sensitivity analysis, FX forward rates/hedges, and business valuation.
Section C: grout co…. lease v buy (DCF) and Moscow Co … WACC
I feel like acca are trying to get us to read the text more rather than practice exam revision kits because having taken f5 and f9, the questions are nothing like practice papers. They’re really just testing your IQ at this stageMarch 9, 2018 at 5:47 pm
I got 7.78% for the WACC and just talked about the different theories M&M with tax, traditional etc. and the difference it would make if option or premium was taken using those theories. I have no idea if that is what they were looking for. The paper was hard and like you, Julia, I couldn’t work out the probabilities NPV question.March 9, 2018 at 5:48 pm
Anybody know how the probabilities question should have been answered? What was the NPV?March 9, 2018 at 5:50 pm
Round about 860March 9, 2018 at 5:54 pm

I think I got something like 6.6% for WACC … I took the same approach in the ‘wordy’ question. I hope for a miracle that I somehow scrape through with 50% pass but it’s very unlikely…March 9, 2018 at 5:59 pm
I had section C
grout co…. lease v buy (DCF) and Moscow Co … WACCMarch 9, 2018 at 6:02 pm
