This is especially for Sec B questions, which are based on IFRSs/IASs
Sir in discussion questions should we always talk about both sides of arguments?
Like even when we know something is grossly wrong, should we still discuss why it could be right based on the facts provided?
Or the examiner would think that we don’t know about the exact application of IFRSs and hence shouldn’t discuss the other way, to avoid being penalised.
No – in this exam DISCUSS usually means EXPLAIN. So don’t do a pros and cons argument as you would do in a university style essay.
The only exception would be a true discussion- e.g. discuss whether it is right to recognise goodwill as an asset – but we don’t seem to get that sort of question these days.
