These six budgets could be asked in the exam. Please mention if there are any more budgets that could be tested in paper PM?
Budgets that involves calculation and could be asked in the exam are:
1) Flexed Budget
2) Incremental Budgeting
3) Rolling Budget
Budgets that could be asked as a theory are:
1) Zero-based Budgeting
2) Activity Based Budgeting
3) Beyond Budgeting
What is the difference between types of budgets and methods of budgeting?
In the notes there are three types of budgets are mentioned but two methods of budgeting. I am confused whether they all are types or methods?
What is the difference though!?November 15, 2021 at 8:02 am #640665John MoffatKeymaster

They are the only budgets that can be examined.
All of them are explained in the lectures (and obviously using the notes without watching the lectures that go with them is pointless).
Rolling budgets and activity based budgets are different types.
Zero-based and incremental are different approached to budgeting.
Flexed budgets are prepared for the purpose of variance analysis.
Beyond budgeting is not preparing budgets at all.
Top-down and bottom-up are different approaches to the preparation of budgets , whatever type of budget they decide to prepare.
