HL Q5 Interpretation of Accounts to attempt in exam?

Just wondering if I should attempt Q5 Interpretation of Accounts in my lc exam, its guaranteed to come up this year but I find that topic particularly difficult especially with the notes and commenting on ratios. Any advice? Should I go for it anyway cos its guaranteed? Thanks

I would say it is a good option as it is a guaranteed question and relatively quick to do in such a time-pressured exam in comparsion to other questions, if you know how to approach them.

I have found it useful to go through each of the past exam paper solutions and make a sort of checklist for what to write under each heading. Also, if you just wrote-learn all the formulae its often up to half the marks. Really nice question once you have the specifics down

it just requires a good bit of study to get down but once you have it it's one of the easiest questions on the paper. if I were you I'd do it.

as for advice on how to go about it. start by doing part A's with the ratios open accompanied by flashcards to learn the ratios. After you are comfortable with part A and have learnt the ratios move on to part B. organise the ratios into categories profitability etc with the previous years right next to them, this will make it easier to compare them. my only advice for part C is to do them as they tend to ask similar things every few years. Good luck!

I wouldnt recommend doing Q5 if you want a h1. The question is to much 'up to interpretation' The part B is particularly difficult to get close to full marks on
