This MasterClass covers all the important topics that students need to know for the Grade 12 DBE Accounting examinations. These topics can be examined within either the Paper I or Paper II formats.
The Accounting MasterClass Series of videos was produced to highlight, clarify and refine the most important concepts as described in the Examination Guidelines. The concepts learnt prior to Grade 12 are not explicitly covered as individual topics but are reinforced to the extent that they apply to Grade 12.
These videos serve to summarise the important concepts related to each topic. They will provide students with theory in order to gain context related to the question and thus enable them to answer Paper II-style questions with deeper and greater understanding. They also include a thorough look at the mechanics of how to record various transactions and therefore serve as a valuable summary of the course and an excellent starting point when studying for exams.
The videos further address common mistakes that students make and how to avoid them. An effort was made to expose students to various ways that the content can be tested. This includes guidance on how to systematically approach accounting examination questions in order to maximise marks and save time. This is done by working through common exam-style questions and discussing the logic behind each answer so that students are able to apply this acquired knowledge to a multitude of questions, rather than simply rote learning solutions.
A student who watches this MasterClass Series attentively and who reinforces the explanations given by actively working through multiple past paper questions will be thoroughly prepared for the final examinations.
