How much time each week did you spend studying, on average?
I try to do an 1 hour a day on average but it does tend to increase in the last week/10 days where I spend on average 6-8 Hours a day.
Which study resources did you use?
In this module, I used the Kaplan resources. However, I tend to make my own notes annotated from Kaplan and use this to revise the concepts prior to starting an questions.
Did you get support from your firm?
No, I don’t get any support from my firm and I am self funding any exams I take.
What was your approach to your studying?
My approach is generally to make my own notes initially, ensuring that I have included any information I felt is relevant and then spend quite a while learning it thoroughly before starting any questions. In the last 10 days, I tend to focus on starting questions from the exam kit and past papers but generally do not do any questions till I know the syllabus thoroughly.
What would you say was the most important factor that helped you to achieve such a high mark?
Make sure I had covered almost the whole syllabus and then practice questions from the exam kit till I felt I was ready to sit the exam.
How did you find out about OpenTuition, and which of our resources did you use?
I got recommended it from a Friend and then looked it up on google and I feel it is a great resource to have available. I mainly use the ask the tutor forum but will try to use other areas in the future.
