Hi there

I emailed Kaplan re: q6.

this is the response I got, hope it helps:

'Thank you for your enquiry regarding assignment question 6.

I apologise for any confusion caused. For the purposes of question 6, Bernadette will retire in 3 year's time as stated in the particulars.

Regards,


Super Technical Services Team

Another question for whoever is out there. In question 5, Do you work out the income test for a couple or single, because he's the only one who's retired. and do her shares count as his assets?

Hey Hogboy,

this is the reponse i got from Kaplan:

Where one member of a couple is applying for age pension, all assets and income (including salary of one or both partners where applicable) and pooled; then half is allocated to the partner claiming age pension.

Just a heads up, make sure you look at the "income" part....

and with regards to Q6 - yes it is a strategy report wrapping all the questions up but making sure you satisfy all the goals and objectives. just make sure you cover every dot point.

i only submitted my assignment last week so still waiting to hopefully get a pass......

Hi, I am going to enrol in the superannuation and retirement AND investment planning subjects sometime in the next week or 2. I aim to have both subjects completed by the end of March. I will keep this forum in mind if I have any questions regarding assignments. I have just passed my FFP and RM assignments and am doing my exams on the 11th of Jan. I found the FFP assignment fairly ambiguous, but the marker said it was set out pretty well. Does anyone have tips for the exams for FFP and RM? I want to get them done first time round, as I need to finish the diploma by the end of March as not to miss an employment opportunity at a financial planning firm.

Thanks

I didn't like RM, I thought there was a lot of open ended Question's, and long answer's you had to nut out. I don't work in the industry, and I think it helps if you do. Ask the people you work with as many Questions as possible. They make it clearer i think, the question's are probably simple, i just coudn't get my head around them. I have to resit module 4, I think.

I don't work in the industry as such. About 4 weeks ago I started a work experience position with a firm, so hopefully with my new subjects I can pick their brains. I actually found section 2 of RM easier than section 1. Very ambiguous. I found its not the exact answer they want, its your reasoning and logic. If I can help, let me know.

Just received my mark back for the SRP assignment, and after much stress, I received a competent.

Not sure about everyone else who has done this assignment, but I still think I over complicated it, as it ended up being about 20,000 words and 65 pages long. I just found I had to explain everything.
