I ended up taking my A3 exam in Xero and cleared successfully. I played around quite a lot with auto generation of the reports in Xero to retrieve the data/figures same as in the answer sheet of mock exams. All the very best wishes for your A3 exam.
Ah, thanks. i'll see how I get on in the mock, but even with lots of fiddling, i can't get Quickbooks report to show the same kind of detail (e.g. the split lines), but this might be a Quickbooks-specific thing.
