I wanted to know how the answer sheets are marked. Say in June 2018 hedging question, it states the co may borrow at base rate + 40 basis points. base rate=4.4%, to increase by 0.6% and decrease by 1%
Do you have any idea how much marks we gonna lose if the 40 basis points is not adjusted to the interest rate. And the interest cost (calculated using 5% & 3.4%) is used everywhere in the question.
You can find the marking scheme always at the end of the examiners answers on the ACCA website. Each individual thing in the answer is rarely worth more than 1 or 2 marks (and you do not lose marks twice – so it you calculate a figure wrong, but then do the right thing on the figure you have calculated then you still get the remaining marks in full and only lose for the one mistake.
ok thank you sir
You are welcome 🙂
