To anyone who didn’t make it the first/second/multi round, as cliche as this may sound, you just need to not give up and keep trying till you pass. FM&AFM have been my worst nightmares as I am someone who struggle with quantitative questions, but trust me, hard work will pay off eventually.October 18, 2019 at 10:54 am
Ong – I didnt make notes. As this was my third sitting, i had to review how i was studying and change. I used the Kaplan text book and went through the Test Yourself questions within the chapters, watched OT lecture videos to understand the basics. I focused on the exam questions as this is where you will really develop your understanding. I spent 3 weeks going through the text book and then rest of the time just on the exam kit. Also read the examiners notes. Good Luck 🙂October 20, 2019 at 12:08 pm
Failed first time (lower mark), this time scored 81.
The difference was definitely not in my understanding of the subject (which was pretty solid), but in practicing. I did not do a single practice exam nor exercise in my previous attempt (I was too busy with one pressurised project at that point with a deadline and was lucky to even attend the exam).
You will pass if you:
1) Watch all AFM OpenTuition lectures
2) Solve BPP Exam kit 2x properly (meaning, as if it was a real exam, so also fully solving narrative questions) and reading solutions afterwards
3) Literally stick to the Time Management on the exam day. If the exam starts 11:00, you do:
It is a cliche, but this exam is not about how well you understand the theory. You may totally understand it, but if you do not practice, you will not pass. If you do not stick to the time management, you will not pass.November 1, 2019 at 5:47 am
