Dear sir,
My question would be more on exam technique.
The question above seems very interlinked between (b) and (c) parts.
The first part is about determining PE ratio
Then this PE ratio would be used to calculate EPS, value of equity etc
The EPS and equity figures are critical for discussion part in (c).
So the question is how to face the rest of the question if I did not get the first part correctly.
Would it be possible not to score the (b) part of the question related to PE ratio (worth 5 marks) but still score well in part (c) (worth 14 marks)?
You never lose marks twice for the same mistake in all of the ACCA exams.
If you make a mistake in part (b) then you lose some marks there, but you still get full marks in part (c) if you have done the correct workings and discussion using the figure that you calculated in part (b).
