Time management problem- left section c 15marksSeptember 5, 2018 at 1:15 pm
so disappointed was studying hard …but didnt work left sec 10 marks questionSeptember 5, 2018 at 1:27 pm
I got a complete mind black at the mix and yield variance so left that part 🙁
The ROI on the last question. Did anyone else work out controllable profit as Turnover less Operatational costs less Depreciation over Controllable non-current Assets??September 5, 2018 at 1:34 pm
@kazcaiels- I did but I left that question but it was in rush. Controllable profit was same as operating profit. Yuri got ROI of 28 I think and lux got 20 %September 5, 2018 at 2:21 pm
Time management was an issue for myself. I also didn’t have anything about Yuri or lux, mine was on a car cleaning company comparing one branch results to branch average results etcSeptember 5, 2018 at 2:28 pm
I got so confused with the question about contribution in part C….I didnt understand what do they mean with the line that Overheads include variable and fix, can someone give me some light how the contribution was supposed to be calculated???September 5, 2018 at 2:30 pm
how did u get tht answer I got 14 and 18 as far as i remember…but probably im wrong I got stressed in part c 🙁September 5, 2018 at 2:53 pm
Contribution is sales – variable costs so i think you head to strip out all fixed costs and add any extra variables (royalty, commission, admin). My contribution was something like 90,150 and 120?September 5, 2018 at 3:07 pm
Are questions different for everyone coz i did not get anything on lux or yuri. My section C was BlueNights Co hotel for financial and non financial performance analysis. And one on Pinnacle Co for buy in or manufacture cycle gears and brakes. I did badly in this quesionSeptember 5, 2018 at 3:10 pm
yeah but there was something mentioned in the table (last line) about the overheads which were fixed and variable….the same with the admin costos….I think you neeed to make some split there to assess what needed to be included as part of the variable costs…not sure how to do the split :/September 5, 2018 at 3:11 pm
Did anyone get question on rolling budgets?September 5, 2018 at 3:23 pm
@dipatiil that’s exactly what I’m talking about. It did say for example that 80% of admin costs are fixed so the remaining you had to divide by number of units which came to $2 per unit. With the production overheads $6 was variable and the rest was fixed so you just deduct it from the total.September 5, 2018 at 3:32 pm
Hi guys! But there was no figure for sales to calculate contribution. How did you calculate that? Also got confused.September 5, 2018 at 3:41 pm
I got stressed and got lost because of that losing lot of time 🙁September 5, 2018 at 4:56 pm
same question break n gears in long but didnt understand part a how to solve itSeptember 5, 2018 at 5:20 pm
@ayesha I got question on rolling budget and I coud not do itSeptember 5, 2018 at 5:21 pm
@saftain even i had similar issues in that questionSeptember 5, 2018 at 5:34 pm
Time Management should be a topic on PM…I was on the last question in section c when invigilators started collecting sheetSeptember 5, 2018 at 5:46 pm
I could not understand that rolling budgets question either. In my study material there wasn’t many questions on rolling budgets and the only time I cane across them was in theory style questions – I am surprised they had a full computational question on it. I had a question on Fitzgerald and Moon aswell which I had very little to say on. Not happy at allSeptember 5, 2018 at 5:51 pm
Mix & Yield variance & FM Blocks question in section C here:
Even after a lot of variance question practice I was stumped on the mix & yield bit but pretty sure I got the usage aspect right as well as the 9 mark b part which was to discuss the managements approach or lack off for using the variances as performance assessment tool
Now the blocks question… didn’t not have any of this type of question in my p&r kit so was stomped but still approached it the way NFI calculations while explaining the correlations between the data set and the headings provided. b part of that I know I got wrong :/
Mcq’s were a lot better than last time but still got confused with 5 questions and did not know how to approach them.
Overall I’m feeling ok but that could be down to my stupidity or naive ness, last exam I got 44% and it felt worse than this one.
Having said that I have a mate who got 45% and then 38% on a resit after he felt that it was easier.
Good luck everyoneSeptember 5, 2018 at 6:04 pm
Overall I found the exam quite hard so could really go either way.
Did anyone have the question (on section C) about building block? I found it very tricky and would be interested to see what other people wrote!September 5, 2018 at 6:35 pm
GOd same here, couldnt answer the rolling budget question, and @ ashee007, I was on the same boat as you, Building block model…didn’t type a lot!September 5, 2018 at 6:49 pm
I shaded my mcq’s with a pencil at first and it was at the last minute I rememberred I hadn’t used a black ball pen. I shaded with the biro on top but I’m not sure I shaded some of them well enough. Please does anyone know if the computer would still be able to recognize it.September 5, 2018 at 6:56 pm

Wish I could have had paper based exam 🙁
