    I've got my C03 exam next week and revision is going well. The only chapter I'm struggling with is Chapter 6 - Forecasting.




    I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips? ie- break it down simply for me? or point in in the direction of some youtube videos that will help make it easier for me?

    I wanted some advice about the Certificate level. I failed the C03 Paper for the second time today. (C03 paper being the first ever paper I have studied for CIMA, was advised to do this paper first, have no previous experience in accountancy).

    I recently took my first certificate level exam, C01.  Although I passed, I was appalled that CIMA students were not allowed to use their own calculators in the exam.  This rule substantially slowed me down and I was not able to complete all the questions.

    To add to the frustration, the ACCA students taking their CBAs at the same time and in the same room as CIMA students were allowed to use their own calculators.

    I am currently going through a few questions and have come across one which I spent a lot of time on ;

    Stationary paid for during 1905 amounted to $1350. At the beginning of 1905 there were inventories of stationary on hand of $165 and an outstanding stationary for $80. At the end of 1905,there were inventories of stationary on hand of $140 and an outstanding stationary invoice $70. The stationary figure to be shown in the income statement for 1905 is?


    The answer is 1365 in the book.

    I'm currently an operational level student who is getting prepared for the November 2013 exams. But I haven't completed all of the foundation level exams yet. I'm still left with 3 subjects (C03,C04 and C05). Could you please tell me the deadline to complete all of the foundation level exams for the students who are expecting to sit for the operational level exams in November 2013?
