Warning for Students taking Principles of Accounting (AC 1025) who insist to study only NPV for the Management Accounting Section

Case Study : 2016 Zone B Q5

In part 4 of this NPV question, the examiner surprised candidates by introducing an irrelevant cost that has an impact on cashflow. This has never appeared in past year exam papers. Many students were caught.

Let’s see if you can solve it.


Implications of Getting Just 1 Part Wrong

The examiner knows that many students are spotting the NPV question and ignoring the rest of the management accounting syllabus. To be fair to students who studied everything, the examiner intentionally increased the level of difficulty by linking up the answers. One careless mistake may cost up to 44% of total marks in this question as shown above.

Many students were overconfident as they felt that they already covered this topic under the Banking and Finance Module. However, there is a part about relevant and irrelevant costs that are not thoroughly covered in Banking and Finance Module. In this case, even irrelevant costs has a cashflow impact. Ask yourself if you could figure out this under exam conditions.

It is thus risky to bank on just NPV alone. You need to cover more topics to avoid being caught in a fix.

Many students in 2016 paid the price. What about you?
