F7 last paper , cant wait.

I think Menon did mentioned about doing Q1,Q2 and Q3 fast so that
there's extra time for Q4 & 5, which I think she has a point coz Q4 & 5
are the toughest as it is random unlikely Q1,2 & 3.

F7... help... am so nervous... need to find the possible miracle way to do well for Qs 1, 2 & 3... i guess i'll have to sacrifice Qs 4 & 5... how can i predict which standard will be examined? look at the Pilot paper alone was scary, the SOF... etc etc... anyone knows the fastest way to memorise the concept of Consol, Publish, CFS, Ratio?

well... good luck all, on core papers & other papers... & F7 as well... hope to pass

@Zoeee : all the best to you, you can do it... don't worry wink.gif

My strategy is not to give up Q4 & 5, why ? simple.
Because if it turns out to be easy, you feel like committing suicide.

I would never give up Q4 & 5 if I were you. In addition, you are BOUND
to make errors in Q1,2,3 so you need Q4 & 5 to compensate for it.

I remember once Menon did mentioned that the accounts will never get balance,
for the amount of questions u need to answer as well as the strict time limit.
Based on majority skill level ok, dont compare genius or pros.


1. Consolidation

You should know the general principles by now, try one or two question
to recall what you lapsed but dont spend too much time on it.


2. Single entity

Learning standards and you cover this which is like killing 3 birds with one stone.
However, your dr cr knowledge must be solid. Dont memorise.


3. Ratios or CF

Should know the principles too by now. Just do one or two TOUGH questions to recall what you lapsed.
Dont spend too much time on it as well.

Ratios, memorise formula or if you can understand it then its good. For F9 students you have a tactical
advantage because ur WC formula/gearing should be in ur head right now.

Just explain the ratios, give critical analysis, read some sample answers and you should be able to get a rough idea.


4. Standards.

Spend more time on this !!!!!


Well, that's my approach. I personally admire Menon because she's really an excellent lecturer, myself seldom praise any
lecturers. When she told us to spend more time on standards I guess its clear that those Q4 ,5 are the decisive marks you
should try to aim.



Cheers.

Hope it helps, still not late.

Depends on individual. But normally, it's tougher than normal accounting degree. Try CPA if you insist of pursue professional route. 30% Coursework 70% Final Exam. ACCA - 100% Final Exam.

littlediana I believe it's IAS 8.

No idea what to focus for f7,since I'm doin the paper this sem sweat.gif

But srsly,don't give up on the remainding questions.Dunno also write some nonsense in. Just go through whatever notes u have and at least understand each standard's principles so you have somethin to write. Besides,you need to know standards to do Q2 right wink.gif

it is IAS 8... by mys is FRS 108 accounting , change in account estimate and policy ...
i think ... hmm.gif
as FRS 101 is presentation of financial statement it juz a mere statement of wat should be present in bs , pl , cf and etc ....
but i don really understand ur question tongue.gif
but FRS 108 says tat if there is a more suitable , measurable std to follow it should be followed , and the change should be consistant and disclose in financial statement , e.g like .. cash flow .. if the company hav the mean to convert indirect method to direct method it should be follow as direct method shows a more detail financial situation of org ...
