2014 7092 GCE O Levels POA Suggested Solutions for Paper 2 (Only)

No greater delight is there as a POA tutor to have used super eye-power to spot questions in the last two days for his beloved students!

 

Unlike before, the crash course this year has been shorten from 18 hours (3 miserable days) last year to a mere 8 hours over 2 days with battle-weary-grouchy-always-hungry-panda-eyes-16-yr-olds.

I have the other subjects to thank for taking time away from my students for POA.

-.-‘’

Ok. Moving on:

Delightful students maketh a delightful tutor.

 

 

 

> 50 students witness the massive bet I took at YMCA and Jurong East on 4th and 5th Nov:

Beside the obvious (Trading, PLA, Current A/C and B/S) and theory, major topics spotting were made plain on the whiteboard the last two days.

Scoreboard:

Topics Spotted Came out
Analysis and Interpretation of final accounts
– Profitability and commentary
YES!
Stock Valuation Partially. Theory
Bank Reconciliation YES!
Capital versus Revenue Expenditure/Receipt Neh.
Incomplete Records (Debtor/Creditor Ctrl) YES!
Capital Structure (WC, CO, CE) YES!
Provision for Doubtful Debts YES!
Correction of Error (Partial emphasis) YES!

 

Also mentioned to not focus on:

P4 Dep + Disposal of Fixed Assets YES!
Amalgamation YES!
Control Accounts No. Sad smile Saved only by revision of incomplete records

 

The Solutions

Of course you didn’t come here to see how delighted my students and I are.

So here’s the draft/suggested/imperfect solutions for Paper 2. I gave up trying to fish for Paper 1. If you have, please what’s app me:

2014 7092 GCE O Levels POA Paper 2 Suggested Solutions

As with previous attempts for solutions, this post gets flamed with questions, doubts and critics even with this caveat and repeated again in the pdf.

I’ll leave you with a quote:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. “

So. Bring it on.

To a better tomorrow and the holidays!
