Hi Mike I cannot believe you are the lecturer for P1, I did P2 in December and I relied on your lectures and passed with a 61 cant wait for P1 now

The course notes are from December 2010,are these still relevant?
February 15, 2015 at 6:57 pm
They are free on this site – why not get the latest version?!
February 13, 2015 at 4:27 pm
Are these lectures relevant and complete for June 15 exam sittings?
Knowledge Seeker says
February 13, 2015 at 7:10 pm
You need to address your question to Mike. I too am a student like you.
February 13, 2015 at 8:33 pm
Knowledge seeker is correct – this would be better posted in Ask the Tutor!
The lectures are all relevant for June 2015 though not entirely complete – integrated reporting is not covered by a lecture but there’s a whole raft of interesting articles on the subject on the internet! Much of them are summarised within the chapter in the course notes
Hope that helps

It is my fourth attempt of P1, (1st 40%, 2nd 42%, 3rd 48%), in all these attempts, I started preparing directly from the kit after making myself familiar with the fundamental concepts.
It is now for the first time that I am relying on your video lectures. My question is that, will these be enough and what is your advice on how to tackle this paper.
My plan this time is Your Video Lectures + Notes & Past exam paper. Just to mention, only P4 and P1 are remaining to qualify and have no problems with English Language, both in writing.
December 4, 2014 at 3:23 pm
Do you ever PLAN what you are going to write? On your answer booklet? Headed “Plan” and NOT crossed out when you have finished the question?
How long do you spend in the planning process?
For a 10 mark sub-dividion of a question, you should be spending 5 minutes jotting down, in bullet point form, 10 markable points
You then have 15 minutes to write those points out paying great attention to the verb in the question requirement and NOT overrunning your 1.5 minutes per point.
That means each point has ONE sentence and each sentence has ONE point
Leave a line between your sentences
Group related points together (all the advantages grouped together, all the disadvantages together)
Today, when you read this, take out a piece of paper from your printer, open a book / magazine / newspaper and see how much you can copy in 1 minute 30 seconds.
And that’s with no thought involved. No adrenalin rush, no pressure.
But that 3 / 4 lines that you wrote in 1 minute 30 seconds is the MAXIMUM length of a sentence / paragraph in the exam
Between now and next Wednesday, read a past question requirements, read the question, halve the number of marks and that’s your planning time. Bullet point your planned answer and STOP at the end of your planning time. Did you get to part c? Part d? Part e? Did you get enough bullets? 10 marks, 10 bullets
Overall, did you score more than half?
Keep doing that, over and over again until you are heartily sick of the exercise and then …… do it again. Endlessly. Until in the exam room, it’s second nature and you will be used to condensing your sentences into 3 lines. You will be used to expanding 4 bullets (not enough for a 10 mark question!) into 6, 7 maybe even 8.
Read the printed solutions and repeatedly say, as I used to (!) “I knew that. And that. And that” So why didn’t you include them in your plan?
Don’t at this late stage sit and try to learn the subject – you should know it backwards by now anyway. Just immerse yourself in it. Let it fill your head. dream about it. And IF you choose to take an evening off with spouse or significant other, gently let P1 concepts float into the conversation.
There shouldn’t be an evening goes past without some mention of risk management, of integrity, honesty, csr, internal auditors and the role of the audit committee
Try the planning exercise and see how you go on
Do it for a complete exam – take 50 minutes over it (100 marks / 2)
Make sure that you address EVERY part of all three questions that you select (and don’t forget to read the question that you decide not to attempt – there could be one or two relevant points in there that could usefully be incorporated into the three that you DO go for)
Try it, and let me know how you go on
November 27, 2014 at 5:25 pm
Can you kindly upload lectures containing the new syllabus of integrated reporting and public sector governance? Thanks
November 28, 2014 at 6:40 am
If they existed, they would already be up on the site.
Maybe I’ll get time during this coming close season but they certainly won’t be available in time for the December 2014 exams
November 29, 2014 at 6:09 pm
Ok. Thanks for replying back.
November 29, 2014 at 10:59 pm
November 25, 2014 at 1:19 pm
The videos are not available?
November 25, 2014 at 2:31 pm
video works fine, see support page for help
October 28, 2014 at 11:24 pm
Is there a way that I can download these lecture videos, so that I can watch it on my train journeys to work?
October 29, 2014 at 8:06 am
No, the videos are not downloadable. You can watch they as many times as you want, but they are not downloadable. It’s the only way we can keep the site free!
October 17, 2014 at 9:08 pm
That example about half truth made me laugh. Good one! 😉
September 29, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Are all these videos up to date? From chapter 1 till chapter 15, all valid for the current sitting Dec 2014? As it says 2010 and the old name of the Paper.
I am preparing to write P1, P3 and P5 this sitting and have spent a lot of time on other papers instead so for P1 is it sufficient to go through these videos and the BPP revision Kit? Please advice.. thanks.
September 29, 2014 at 12:17 pm
Hi, yes, they are all still current. I have recorded a new introduction but have yet to send it to Admin to upload instead of the old one.
The notes and lectures together with the revision kit should be enough – of course, as always, it depends upon individual students, their motivation, their self-discipline, other demands on their time …. all manner of matters that could affect the effectiveness of studying but, yes, the notes + lectures + revision kit question practice should be enough
September 29, 2014 at 1:01 pm
Okay thank you so much sir.. my only priority right now is to pass my papers and clear my ACCA qualification looking forward to the new introduction vid.
September 29, 2014 at 1:09 pm

taking p1 after a 3 year gap. married and 2 kids later am back to finish my acca.
September 10, 2014 at 4:11 pm
Well, let’s get it sorted out, out of the way, and then you can get on with your family life
August 12, 2014 at 6:16 pm
Its my 3rd attempt in December 2014 of P1 ( 1st 38% 2nd 46%)and 2nd p3(39%) now m thinking 3 paper I.e. p1 p3 and p6 wht shoud I do to pas these paper.??? Especially for p3
Note:advise for p1 n p6 also valuable
August 12, 2014 at 7:01 pm
Sorry to hear you sad news. Clearly I cannot comment about where you are going wrong in P1 without seeing your script.
However, for you to be scoring in the 30s suggests that there’s something fundamentally wrong in what you’re doing.
It’s my firm belief that the biggest cause of student failure in the exams is poor technique – it cannot be a lack of knowledge because you wouldn’t go into that exam room if you didn’t feel that you had a reasonable chance of success
Have you read the exam technique articles on this site for P1, P3 and “General” They may help
There are 2 articles in Student Accountant archives from maybe 2 years ago by 2 members of the P3 marking team – they could help
Post your question on the P3 Ask the Tutor and see what Gromit advises.
And try this – it’s a bit of advice I gave to a P7 student this morning and it’s something we do in class to emphasise the point. It may just help.
Get hold of a reputable revision kit.
Read a question requirement.
Divide the number of marks for the question by 2. That’s the number of minutes you have to plan an answer.
Ok, plan an answer. Just one word bullet points are ideal.
At the end of your planning time, stop. Count up the number of different points you have planned to write in a full answer.
Did you get half marks?
Check the printed solution to see what you missed. See if the solution has managed to get two separate points out of just one of yours.
Did you manage to score more than half in each and every part of the question requirements?
Do this exercise again and again and again ….. until you’re totally sick of doing it.
And then do it some more.
I believe that the biggest cause of failure in this exam is an inability to score enough separate points within the time allocation. And that ability has to be spread across all the parts of those questions that you attempt
Try it, and see what you think
August 18, 2014 at 9:29 pm
I am not sure if this is the right forum but can I do P1 and another course from the skills level at the same time?
August 12, 2014 at 2:29 pm
Hello guys, I just failed my first trial on P1 after study for 2 weeks.
I am planning to take 3 papers one shot (P1, P2 nad P3)
Can anyone share experience as whether it is too burden?
Is it possible if I start my revision from now for all the 3 papers?
August 12, 2014 at 3:10 pm
It depends what else you have on your plate? Work? Family? Social life? Sick relatives? Motivation?
If you are able to devote the time (maybe 5 hours per day every day) then yes, it’s possible. If you can manage more than 5 productive hours in the day, great! That will improve your chances of success each additional hour spent studying.
But start NOW!
August 12, 2014 at 6:20 am
The video lectures correspond with BPP Chapters right?
Or do they correspond with OT Notes?
August 12, 2014 at 7:03 am
OT notes. Why would I want to lecture from BPP material? 😉

can we download these clips as we have no access to the internet at all times. it would helpful to have the clips downloaded.
August 9, 2014 at 10:23 am
The lectures are not down-loadable but, of course, the course notes are.
It’s the only way we can keep the site going, sorry
August 8, 2014 at 10:03 pm
Are these lectures still valid even though it says December 2010 on the slide? And the lecturer also mentions that this paper is no longer going to be there. I guess these are the old lectures but still applicable now???
August 8, 2014 at 10:07 pm
here’s not much changed in the World of Governance, nor Risk, nor Ethics
Yes, the lectures are still valid. There are some chapters in the notes that do not have a lecture but they are few and far between. The comment about it being the last exam was because the ACCA changed the name of the exam. The syllabus stayed the same only the name changed
August 12, 2014 at 7:11 am
Thank you ever so much

1) Make sure your flash player is updated
2) change your pre set DNS to google DNS

I can’t even watch them. from My android phone

I am taking P1 for December 2014 & want to make a pair with either P2 or P3 but confused…………………..:( please anyone tell me which pair proves to be the best…?
July 10, 2014 at 4:27 pm
Think P1 and P3 are more suitable
June 4, 2014 at 11:29 am
How many hours of lecture shall I expect to watch for your lessons?
Thank you in advance.
May 27, 2014 at 7:30 pm
With due respect, I think that joke about Burkina Faso is in bad taste. Burkinabes have and use mobile phones like you in Uk and myself in Nigeria. They also use the latest tablets and apps that you and I use even though it is a small country. The world has become a global village. So these things have become very commonplace even in Burkina Faso. I suggest that you edit out that part of the lecture which I consider very offensive.
May 12, 2014 at 3:33 am
i found the lecture input for the coming exam
April 18, 2014 at 9:35 pm
I’ve been studying since mid-January and I’ve just finished reading the entire BBP text, I’m now preparing to watch videos followed by practicing past papers in May. However I find this course very boring and dry, I fall asleep very easily and don’t feel very interested in this topic. Written exams are my weakest by far as I have great difficulty expressing my opinions in written format especially under exam conditions and time constraints, I enjoy other paper composing mostly of calculations. Can you please offer some advise on what I need to do in order to become interested and able to pass P1 this coming June?
April 24, 2014 at 10:39 am
Its all about the mindset …. you have just convinced your self that you are purely an accountant and anything relating to managing an organisation and its strategies is beyond you…there should be room for flexibility. We are the next CEOs and CFOs … P1and P3 are the fundamental skills needed to achieve those goals…. let’s chance our mindset and lets stay self motivated.
April 25, 2014 at 4:27 pm
Thank you Sir,
Your online lecturers are very helpful as always, I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say that we cannot thank you enough for providing. I am changing my mindset as I am determined to pass at the first attempt, I’m also reading technical articles and examiner’s reviews which gives great insight into exam techniques and presentation.
Have a great day,
March 24, 2014 at 8:34 am
I’m planning to sit P1 for June 2014 session. Unfortunatelly I do not have lot of time to study because I’m travelling a lot during the next 2 months but I would like to take at least p1 pecause there is a time pressure for me to finalise ACCA courses.
What would be your advice for studing?
I’ve git BPP materials (including course notes) and now I would like to start by accessing the OT lecturers.
Thank you very much for your support.
March 3, 2014 at 10:45 am
Is studying P1 with opentuition online lectures and bpp text book enough to pass this exam .
March 3, 2014 at 1:32 pm
I seem to keep answering this post from you Mrs Azfar. Please, read my response to the same question which you posted on a different page in one of your earlier posts
August 18, 2014 at 4:50 am
I am unable to find Mrs. Azfar’s comment. I am new to OT and I am eager to sit P1 in December. Is OT lectures, notes, past exams enough material needed to pass this exam? Kindly advise how many hours of lectures is appropriate to put it. I do work full time but I have minimal commitments and ready to devote late night/early mornings to studying.
Many thanks in advance.
August 18, 2014 at 6:36 am
I seem to remember telling Mrs Azfar that the course notes are not intended to replace a study text. However, there are a number of students that claim to have passes this exam (and others) simply using the notes and a reputable revision kit
As for time ….. as much as you can. There is no upper limit. The more you do, the more familiar you will become with the syllabus and requirements and the “easier” the exam will appear
February 21, 2014 at 11:09 am
Hello sir, I hope you are able to guide me. I have sat P1 three times and my scores have ranged from 42 to 46. In fact the last session was 46. I have how signed up to OT. What am I not doing to achieve the required pass mark. Though am getting frustrated, but will not be defeated. I am looking to sit it again in June and combine it with P3. Please guide me. Thanks
February 20, 2014 at 7:36 am
Working and taking 3 papers f8,f9,p1 for this session? how to manage time? need help
February 20, 2014 at 7:44 am
There’s a post from ‘Michael’ just below this thread. May I suggest you look at his post and see what he has planned?
One session per week with an approved training establishment may not be appropriate for you so you’ll need to adapt.
Work out how much time you have available. Remember, in that exercise, other demands on your time – family, courses, food, sleep, recreation.
Have you got time to read three study texts? If yes, read them and then get stuck into revision kits.
If not, get stuck into revision kits without the benefit of study texts.
You will probably be hopelessly lost to begin with but (certainly with F8 and P1 – I can’t speak for F9) you’ll soon pick it up.
With all three papers I suggest you read the OT notes (more than once) and follow the online recordings.
Post again if you’re having problems, and good luck
February 18, 2014 at 11:06 am
hi ther sir…
i need some advice on P1.. im very bad in taking 100%theory papers i fail F4 twice..
any advice about P1? im sitting it in June 2014
February 18, 2014 at 11:09 am
Read my advice to Linana below this post – it’s equally applicable to you
February 18, 2014 at 9:58 pm
For June 2014 I will be attempting the following:
F8 Full Course 1 day per weekend with Approved College
F9 (Resit) Kaplan Book and all notes from last December plus whatever is on here
P1 LBSF Basic online package plus whatever is on here.
Is this achievable to pass all 3?
How quickly should I be getting through the P1 lectures above?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
February 19, 2014 at 6:41 am
You sound like you have your schedule planned out well in advance.
Yes, three in one session is achievable. Just make sure you put in plenty of time practising past exam questions
February 16, 2014 at 2:07 pm
I failed P1 in Dec13 session and will attempt in June. I think that I tried hard to study P1 but it is not successful, may be this is not a good approach. I’m quite good in calculation but stuck with the papers have a lot theories like P1. what should I do to pass P1, plz?what should be prepared?
February 16, 2014 at 2:18 pm
Read, plan, read, plan, read, plan
over and over again
30 mark question = 19.5 minutes reading and planning time. ((30 / 2) + (30% x 15 minutes r and p time)
read the question, think, plan (in bullet point format) NB bullets not acceptable in your “proper answer, but they’re fine in your plan
Read the question again after 18 minutes to make sure that you have planned an answer to the question, the whole question and nothing but the question.
Stop the planning exercise after 19.5 minutes
Count how many bullet points you have and check against the printed suggested solution to see how many of your points would have scored. Did you get 30 points for the 30 mark question? No? 20? No?
Well that’s what you need, so try the exercise again with another question.
And another, and another.
Now go back to the first one and do it again.
Did you get 30 this time? No? 20? No?
Then it’s not enough
Over and over and over again until you are totally sick of governance, risk and ethics, And, when you have reached that stage of being totally sick, then ………. do it all again, and again! And keep doing it
February 16, 2014 at 3:51 pm
thanks for your advice.

sir i have attempted p1 paper 4 times but cannot pass it.
i’m very disturb plz guide what should i do.

Mike Little is the man to follow and he will help you.
Drop me an email and I will show you my exact method I used to get through this examination even with minimal preparation and am sure you will pass. If you start now, it will be more effective as well.
February 26, 2014 at 2:04 am
I planning to self study for P1 and attempt in June 2014. May i know the lecture note/course note available in Opentuition, is it suitable for Singapore P1?
by the way, can you share your method for passing this P1?
salvia cardoso says
February 8, 2014 at 11:37 am
70% all due to Mr. Little wonderful lectures. Thank you so much.
February 8, 2014 at 11:39 am
Well done Salvia – but don’t forget that you also had some input into your success!
It was you sitting in that exam room in December – I was with you in spirit, but it was your penmanship that got you through.
February 8, 2014 at 2:32 am
Thanks to opentutuion and sir mike i passed 62%
February 8, 2014 at 9:12 am
Well done zee – onwards and upwards!
January 26, 2014 at 3:26 am
how can i download these videos?
January 30, 2014 at 2:38 pm
You can’t! There must be at least 3,764 posts on this site asking exactly that same question. the videos are NOT downloadable. Course notes are but videos aren’t.
Tp quote Admin on so many occasions in the past “It’s the only way we can keep this site free”!
December 28, 2013 at 7:42 pm
Dear Mr Mike – I have a question.
I understand from the ACCA syllabus and study guide that there are no changes supposed to occur between June 13 exam session till June 14, since the guide says (Governance, Risk and Ethics (P1) June 2013 to June 2014). – But I wonder if there were any changes that took place from Exam sessions in year 2012 to year 2013.
I only have the study guide for 2013-2014 which I have obtained from the ACCA website, however, I don’t have the study guide relevant to year 2012 in order to be able to compare point by point. Not sure if you will be able to confirm to me that.
December 28, 2013 at 7:57 pm
There’s so little that has changed that I wouldn’t worry!
Just make sure that you read any technical articles from Student Accountant from 2012 and 2013 and particularly the article on The Bribery Act (although there is a chapter about it in the course notes)
December 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm
Many thanks Mr Mike! Appreciate the quick response and sure, I will read the articles
December 19, 2013 at 6:44 am
I am Going to sit for p1 in june 2014. Will this all the lecture will be updated or shall i use this for the studies. N sir, Will this lectures plus practicing past exam question will be enough for my next june 2014 exam? Plx help. Thankx
January 30, 2014 at 2:43 pm
No update is scheduled – basically because no update is seen to be necessary!
Will it be enough? That’s really up to you. For some in the past, they say that it was all they used in preparation. Others (probably) have failed because it was all they used in preparation. Put it this way – it’s a good start. Of absolutely MAJOR importance is the practising of past exam questions. That, together with a big bundle of exam technique, a huge slice of luck and a liking for the particular questions on the day and …. well, you may have done enough to pass
October 12, 2013 at 4:50 pm
I can’t find the revision course anywhere. Help, anyone!!!!
October 12, 2013 at 5:03 pm
I’m not sure what you mean by “Revision course”. The videos / audios are the only lectures for P1 and they take you through the course notes. With only 4.5 days to prepare students for the exam, there isn’t the luxury of time available for revision courses and past exam question practice
Of course, if you have a problem when you’re going through the lectures, notes and revision kits ….. post again
October 12, 2013 at 6:09 pm
Thank you so much for the prompt reply. OT never fails to amaze me.
I am very sorry I wasn’t clear. With the other papers there is a link for the revision stage with some questions. So I was looking the same for the P1 paper.
Completely separate point, I just want to take this opportunity to say you are the best ACCA tutor I have come across. I have paid for tuition from a certain provider in the past and it was rubbish. Thank god I can’t afford it anymore as that caused me to find OT. I have recommended it to my friend, who is also now using OT for support. Brilliant!
October 12, 2013 at 7:50 pm
Well, thank you. Don’t stop with just one friend! Spread the word :-))
September 26, 2013 at 11:17 am
I sat for my PI lecture class in the year 2010 and i did not pass. Has the syllabus changed much that i may have to attend classes or can what I learnt in 2010 could be applied taking note of any advances made over the years. Kindly advice.
September 26, 2013 at 2:01 pm
I seem to remember that it’s just the Bribery Act which has been added so you should be ok
September 26, 2013 at 2:46 pm
Thank you very much.
September 3, 2013 at 2:57 pm
I was just watching past paper exams in P level and i noticed that these exams are 125 marks in total. Do we still need 50 marks to pass or more (1 Q 50 marks and the other 3 25 marks each). How do they convert 125 marks into 100 and the passing mark of 50?
thanks in advance
September 3, 2013 at 3:22 pm
Hi, you only attempt 100 marks out of the 125. Question 1 for 50 marks is compulsory and then you choose 2 out of 3 remaining questions worth 25 marks each
September 4, 2013 at 2:55 pm
Oh all right then……Thanks a lot
September 4, 2013 at 3:01 pm
August 18, 2013 at 2:48 pm
sir these lectures are of 2010 session.can i still use them?.
August 18, 2013 at 5:35 pm
You certainly can! There has been so little change to the P1 syllabus. Just make sure that you have the up-to-date course notes which include bits on treasury shares and the Bribery Act
July 10, 2013 at 2:49 pm
i am very concerned about my studies…plz tell me that is it enough to take these lectures to pass the exam without any other coaching especially when i opted for four papers??
July 24, 2013 at 9:20 am
Its possible to pass this paper even if you have little time on your plate. Create a study program, after you read study text, check out the videos for revision. Just be confident and you will make it.
July 10, 2013 at 12:44 pm
I can’t see the video ????? saying something about server not found
July 10, 2013 at 2:29 pm
Install flash player
August 6, 2013 at 4:27 pm
Any particular flash player? i cant view video also i get 404 server …
August 6, 2013 at 9:01 pm
look at the technical suoort on this page – towards the top on the right
March 29, 2013 at 1:49 pm
Are there any flashcards for P1 as i find these really useful to help me remember things?
June 3, 2013 at 1:50 pm
Agreed, are there any flash- or passcards to this?
June 3, 2013 at 2:28 pm
If there were, they would be on line
June 3, 2013 at 2:31 pm
thanks anyway, it was worth a shot 😀
March 20, 2013 at 9:39 pm
very nice lecturer

As mentioned in lecture Possible change in name & might be in material too (you can see this name change in study notes
August 11, 2013 at 10:35 am
kampenis, nabin, navy maurya – the recorded notes from 2010 are just as relevant today as they were when I recorded them. The tiny amendments to the syllabus were already effectively covered (in advance, before the syllabus changed!) I believe that I’m correct in saying that the Bribery Act is not covered in lectures but there is a note in course notes covering the topic

Is there any possibility to download these videos??
January 31, 2013 at 8:33 am
No, lectures are not downloadable
You can watch on line as many times as you wish
That’s the only way to keep the site free
January 25, 2013 at 10:28 am
these lectures are for 2010….where can v find lectures for june 2013. plz help
January 25, 2013 at 11:02 am
Lectures are still fine for June 2013
May 23, 2013 at 11:49 pm
Thank You…Any ideas about the maths bits introduced in P1?for June 2013 please
May 24, 2013 at 6:44 am
No, not really. There was a question in the BPP revision kit first edition about a director’s remuneration package which involved numbers and percentages …. but it’s no longer in there. Then two new questions were in the BPP kit from 2 years ago – only short questions which required calculations. I don’t know if they are still in, sorry.
Just remember to take your calculator into the exam with you. As a P level candidate you should be able to cope with whatever the examiner throws at you!

December 7, 2012 at 10:18 am
Thank you guys, your lectures have always been awesome and of great help
But i would have to disagree with the lecturer in this podcast.
Many a times in these high profile corporate failures, the auditor’s are held liable and face criminal charges. the best example will be the dissolution of one of the most prominent audit firms namely Arthur Andersen in the Enron scandal in 2001-02. Also in the case of The Lehman Brothers, their auditors Ernst & Young do face criminal charges.
December 7, 2012 at 10:33 am
@RATHEESH RAVI, You’re right of course. That’s two examples you’ve given. Yet Cadbury was reporting in 1992 – 20 years ago. So, not a bad average? One example for every 10 years. No doubt there are others – it’s just that we don’t appear to hear about them – maybe I should broaden my reading base
December 7, 2012 at 11:03 am
@MikeLittle, maybe i was being a bit cynical there 😛 .. hehehe
but you do have a point, it not like us, the normal mass, gets to hear a lot about it.
Keep up the great work though
January 31, 2013 at 6:31 pm
….and Ernst Young have this week been exonerated!
November 22, 2012 at 7:42 am
i cant play these lectures using my tab. Can you please tell me do i need to download any different type of video player?

@admin, I have downloaded chrome &

November 6, 2012 at 4:01 am
which exam kit should i use with open tuition lectures and course notes?
November 24, 2012 at 6:41 am
@strizvi1, Whichever you want! The lectures are entirely based on the course notes. We only get to practising past exam questions on the revision section of the course and they are not recorded
November 4, 2012 at 4:41 pm
Though the Lecturer failed to tell us his name online, never the less with him, David Campbell is nobody to be feared. Nice job Open Tuition.
October 5, 2012 at 2:24 pm
Thanks for the good lectures
September 17, 2012 at 9:03 pm
Very splendid way of presenting the lectures, appreciated!

hello, i’m new member, i never attend PI clas, and i now working and i planned to take PI in this setting, so is it the notes enough for me to rely on it ?i found that the notes very short and based on the study guide compaed with the notes i found that some missing, for example,under the Scope of govt, the notes didn’t provide “Explain and analyse the issues raised by the development of the join…….” i wish ave some guidences thank you adn appreciated alot.
August 6, 2012 at 9:17 am
@ivyteh, The notes have NEVER been claimed to be enough – not in this nor any other paper. It would help if you also listened to the video / audio lectures and practice as many past exam questions as you can.
July 30, 2012 at 5:26 pm
Much appreciated. Great lectures.
July 27, 2012 at 10:07 am

June 19, 2012 at 10:13 am
@tegtesf, hi, if I am right…. I think you need to have PDFs file reader to be able to download the lectures notes and Adobe reader 9 onward to able to download the audio lectures. I hope this helps you.
June 16, 2012 at 9:47 am
amazing , the way he is teaching so wondrful

April 6, 2012 at 11:39 am
Can l rely on this lecture and the course note for JUne 2012 as l am new to Open Tuition. Thanks
April 6, 2012 at 4:00 pm
@aduuni, yes, but no one has ever claimed that OT course notes are sufficient in themselves. They are supplementary to any other study resource you may choose to use. But, in answer to your question, the OT course notes should be helpful to give you a flavour of the syllabus
March 9, 2012 at 7:08 pm
awesome example of telling truth….
February 29, 2012 at 9:52 am
can i rely on the notes and the lectures given, for my june preparation??
the notes r in bullet points, r they acceptable??
help me out anyone plz..
March 3, 2012 at 9:55 am
@azeemuddin, the notes of P1 is only useful in the revision phase. In Order to Pass P1, you should have to read the Exam Kit thoroughly.
February 19, 2012 at 11:27 am
Can I use this for the coming June, 2012 exams? Need some help. who can answer me?? Thanks.
February 19, 2012 at 1:09 pm
@warmnaicha, YES you can
February 16, 2012 at 6:00 pm
Just new, I hope the lectures will help

@12:31 Latvia thinks African country doesn’t have phones…. that’s a gem
May 31, 2012 at 4:00 pm
@laolualabi, Site should be checked to avoid some nasty comments…………….
May 31, 2012 at 4:36 pm
@orock, It was meant to be a gem! I can think of nothing less interesting than a lecture with no humour! Were I to be giving the same lecture in ANY African country, I would probably say that Eastern Europe had no phones!
January 30, 2012 at 3:19 pm

March 2, 2011 at 5:55 pm
first, turn off CAPS
and when you load a lecture next time, wait few minutes before you press play, slow internet connection is the problem
March 1, 2011 at 1:41 pm
