    Hi John,

    I am finding it really difficult to get to a closed book situation, answering past exam questions. Obviously with time now running out, what revision approach would you recommend? I’m currently analysing past exam questions and answers and then re-attempting trying to really understand the syllabus area (this is a painfully slow process!) and panic is starting to set in!!

    Any guidance on final revision approach and areas I should really begin to focus on etc? I have tried to cover the whole syllabus but I don’t feel I know enough in many areas and have spread my study areas too thin.

    Thanks in advance

    Don’t panic – remember you only have to get 50% to pass, so don’t expect to be able to complete every question.
    Your main focus should be on past section A questions. Again, don’t worry too much about small parts of those questions which may cause you problems – look at the marking schemes that are published with the examiners answers and make sure you are happy with the parts of the questions that are earning the most marks.
