ABA9 Revison

Hello

Can anybody help with the following:

 

I am currently studying for the ABA9 exam and need to do as much revision as possible.  I am wondering if anybody is aware of any practice questions. particularly on mark up/ margin and ratio's.  I intend to do the mock exams on the ICB but would really like to do lots of practical practice as well - I am more than willing to purchase these and hopefully they will have the answers as well so I can check I am getting the questions correct.

Any feedback & advice would be gratefully received.

Just be careful of one thing. I thought I was being clever by allowing myself to fail the real papers in order to get good feedback on where I was going wrong. The rules said I could sit three times, but I was locked out after two and told to wait six months to sit again. I sent an email to ICB to complain about this but didn't get a reply.

>>>

What if I fail my exam? 

Because ICB examinations are available in every week of the year you can resit your examination as soon as you're ready. You will be required to wait for a period of 24 hours before booking and pay the standard examination fee for your resit. Your resit will be a different version of the same examination, so the questions will be different.

After three failed attempts (two for Payroll and Self Assessment Tax) a candidate may be asked to delay further application until:

a) further study has been undertaken

or 

b) the new season's examination papers are available"

 

As you can see from above excerpt from the live website I am in the right.

 Hi Sam

I practiced and practiced, eventually  it fell into place, I really did not think I would ever get the hang of ratios and margins but stick with it and it all comes together.  I passed with a merit :)

Hi Nicki

 

I am on the final unit in ABA8 so quite close behind you.  If you are were sent anything of assistance I would be happy to purchase a copy if possible.  As you say the more practice the better before the real thing.

 

Cheers

 

Sue
