Disclaimer: The purpose of these three revision questions is to assist

students in their preparation for the final and deferred examinations. It is to
assist students with the style of question that may be asked in these exams.
Remember the final and deferred exams consist of 4 questions covering the
chapters/topics below. It is of 2 hours duration and thus you have
approximately 30 minutes per question. It is recommended you read the
entire paper first and then answer the questions you find easiest first so you
pick up time and confidence for the later questions that you find hardest.
The three revision questions in this document cover the Balance Sheet
(Chapter 5), Income Statement (Chapter 6) and Statement of Cash Flows
(Chapter 7). You need to go back through these chapters/topics in detail, as
well as, the relevant weekly tutorial work you covered in the weeks Lessons
you learned these chapters/topics.
Your revision of 'Analysis & interpretation of financial statements' (Chapter 8)
and 'Cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis' (Chapter 10) was covered in,
respectively Week 12 and Week 14 tutorial classes. These two
chapters/topics cover the 4th question. Please refer to the relevant online
homework + tutors unseen and students unseen questions and answers for
those weeks. I have left open on vUWS, under the Tutorials file, the

This document is to be read in conjunction with the Conceptual design of the

October, will be a list of the academic staff who are available during STUVAC
week (Week 15 w/c Monday 26 October) to assist students in their learning
for the final exam. It states the dates, times and location staff are available.
Staff will not do the problems for you. They are there to check the work you
have attempted and guide you in your understanding and learning.

If a student attends and has not made an honest attempt at the question, then
staff will place the student in a room where the student will have to attempt
the question then and there. Remember we will not be there at the final exam
to do the answer for you. You have to do it for yourself. Staff are available to
assist student's in their learning.
