      80m- marginal or Product

      100m- published, club, suspense, farm, or service

      60m- incomplete type2, published, club, suspense, farm or service

      They're the predictions from my teacher! She seems pretty positive that published is up this year

      Would I be safe leaving out tabular and suspense and learn published,service firm,club and interpretation of A/cs very well? for questions 6 and 7 since I'd do Q5 definitely I'd say.

      I'd say you'll be alright, you can never know for sure though.

      Anyone doing question 1? And what are they predicting for it?

      I am doing question one. I'd say manufacturing for question one as it seems to follow the trend of alternating between the 3 types. Also I done 2 mocks and manufacturing was in both. That was deb and examcraft. They are the easiest notes but take longer with an extra account to do.

      Eoin could you send me the both mock papers please? What do you think will come up on the religion?

      I'm so f**ked for religion. Sorry. Probably philosophers and after that I couldn't tell you. Sorry. How will I send the accounting papers on?

      Email me your email. My email is I'll send on both papers in the morning. Thanks. I've been up since 7 with a maths paper 2 mock so need sleep.

      is it too risky to do just manufacturing or should i look over the other ones?

      Eoin Duignan

      Concentrate mostly on manufacturing but don't not have a look at the others. If you can do manufacturing good you should be fine at company and sole trader.

      2015 company

      2014 sole trader

      2013 manufacturing

      2012 company

      2011 manufacturing

      2010 sole trader

      The fact company was last year I really cannot see them giving it 2 years in a row. Don't think same one has ever been up 2 yes in a row. So also look at sole trader which came up in 2014.

      cooldude7878 You should at least try tabular there a lot easier than suspense

    11. avatar image


      I thought farm accounts don't come up at 100 markers??

    12. avatar image


      They can but they never asked it but if they do it will be a balance sheet and thats pretty easy

    13. avatar image


      We've never even done farm accounts :/ :/

    14. avatar image


      Try the lastest one using the marking scheme and then try one without the marking scheme there pretty easy and theyre way nicer than club and service firm

    15. avatar image


      Ok.. And do you think they are a possibility for a 100 marker even though it was never asked before?

    16. avatar image

      Eoin Duignan

      Farm accounts have been a 60 marker in the following years

      2015 2012 2009 2006.

      That's a trend of every 3yrs. So it probably Wont be a 60/100 marker this year and that's the main reason you have not covered it. Never been a 100 marker as too short a question to make 100 marks. That's why tabular and club haven't been up in ages as they are easy enough 100 marker questions. Hope this helps

    17. avatar image


      Eoin they can make it a 100 marker by adding a balance sheet its on the syllabus

    18. avatar image


      If you dont get it at first go leave it

    19. avatar image

      Eoin Duignan

      I know that but the fact its never been a 100 marker for the last 14 years and the fact it was on as a 60 marker last year makes it unlightly to come up this year. Plus they are similar enough to club as far as I can remember

    20. avatar image


      Thanks think I'll try doing one or two incase but don't think they'll come up if they were on last years paper!!

    21. avatar image


      But they are trying to make papers less predictable

    22. avatar image


      Does anyone think there is a possibility of Depreciation coming up?

    23. avatar image



    24. avatar image


      Depreciation is unlikely but revaluation could be an option

    25. avatar image



      60 markers

      Incomplete A

      Creditors and Debtor Control

      Published Accounts

      100 markers




      Q8 Marinal Costing

      Q9 Know all 3

    26. avatar image


      Also Incomplete B as a 100 marker

    27. avatar image


      is it safe to just learn published, club and service in question 6 and 7 as I am doing the ratios question

    28. avatar image


      Yes you be grand but quickly go over the others thhe night before just incase they dont come up

    29. avatar image


      Hi I'm cramming everything in accounting Higher level for the lc and its in less than 2 weeks . Does anyone have any useful notes on Q1 manufacturing /sole trader ? Like the actual workings of so can someone please email them to me .

      You can also take a picture of them and send them to the email address . Much appreciated . Thanks

    30. avatar image


      look up great notes

    31. avatar image


      I'm skipping the ratios question.. Learnt published club/service suspense and tabular fingers crossed I'm covered

    32. avatar image


      Incomplete records type B is due as well as a 100 marker

    33. avatar image


      theres a clear pattern to follow, my predictions - Reval -60 Incomplete-60/100 -Club-60/100 - Debtors-60 Suspense-60/100 Publiseh-100/60 and cash, production or combined coming up

    34. avatar image


      Can anyone help me with the disposal of the vehicle from the 2012 Service Firm question? I keep getting a loss on Disposal of €6000 but the marking scheme says it is a loss of €10000

    35. avatar image


      Q1- manu

      100 markers - published/ incomplete B/ club/service/ suspense/ Tab

      80 markers- flexi/ production

    36. avatar image


      Do you think there is any chance of cash flow coming up seeing as it came up in both 2014 and 2015??

    37. avatar image


      Tabular 100 m has not been asked since 2009 so good chance that could be asked

    38. avatar image


      anyone answering q 1? Is it safe to know manufacturing and sole trader?

    39. avatar image


      Ok to leave cash flow out if I'm not doing ratios? Risky or no?

    40. avatar image


      you should be fine without cashflow

    41. avatar image


      I'm thinking the same @ciaraphelan....I'm not doing ratios but also hate cashflow....they've come up in the last two years but this year has proved they are trying to not make us able to predict the papers 😁 I'm looking for an A1 though so think I might just have a go at 1 or 2 of them

    42. avatar image


      I'm the very same as you @lc8/6/16. I'm only leaving out ratios because time wise they're not ideal. Cash flow was the only q I ever hated but I think I may look over them.

    43. avatar image


      Ya there's loads to learn in ratios...also my teacher said that like you could write pages for the second part but they are just looking for specific things, she said that for a good accounting student they should stick to more the accounting questions as ratios includes a lot of writing and is also time consuming in the exam! Ya look over the cashflow but surely they won't put it on for a third year in a row,hopefully anyway

    44. avatar image


      I also hate suspense and they're tipped to come up

    45. avatar image


      Don't mind suspense, quick question to do and even if you do an account wrong you're not penalised too much! Yeah hopefully, we'll see Monday!
