Final words from F1 lecturer regarding tips before exam

Dear F1 students,

Welcome to the end of my lectures, and let me share with you once again some tips before you go for your December exams.

Like I always said in class, keep yourself fit! You must always exercise, take healthy food and rest well in order for your brain to work well.

Business and Corporate Law, Singapore Variant

The Business and Corporate Law examination consists of 10 questions all of which are compulsory. Each of them carry 10 marks and are to be done in 180 minutes. Hence you can only spend a maximum of 18 minutes per question. In order to ensure full marks for each question you will have to attempt all questions within the 180 minutes. Failure to answer all the questions will result in lesser marks available.

As it is a “all questions to be answered” paper you will have to study the contents of the whole syllabus.

  1. Question one is likely to include an Investment appraisal of some kind. For project appraisal, be able to calculate and discuss other appraisal methods such as MIRR and project duration in addition to NPV. Be able to assess risk.
  2. The alternative to a project appraisal is a business valuation. This area has been tested regularly in recent times so maybe look for something on using options (Black Scholes) to value businesses as an alternative to traditional methods.
  3. Financial performance evaluation including EVA
  4. Schemes of reorganization and reconstruction
  5. Treasury management. Managing interest rate risk or possibly incorporating a currency swap into an NPV question.

As always you can expect questions to incorporate cost of capital calculations, discussions of basic financial management theory such as capital structure decisions and dividend policy, sources of finance etc.

Calculating ratios, applying the CAPM and DVM (or Free cash flow models), un-gearing and re-gearing betas etc feature in all exams.
