I got 40 in my first attempt and Planning to resist this exam in June and wondering if anyone has any advice on how approach resists, is it best to start from scratch or just go from notes?motivation seems harder when resiting so any advice will be appreciated
Thanks in advance
Well yeah, think its easier when you’re starting from scratch, how far have been off in other 7 times. Getting closer?
Advice needed- How to effectively “go through the past papers”? what is your approach? Do you read the Q, answer it and than check the answer and write it down, or red Q, and think about it, then read the answer and write bullet points for main ideas?
It seems like the answers are so advanced I would never come up with such points.
It’s my last paper, second attempt (41marks March 19 sitting) and I am depressed as I think I will never make it to the end. Please help
Re: starting from scratch:
In my opinion passing APM is all about practice. If you have already attempted the exam, I doubt that you need to start looking at theory from scratch. However I would recommend to go through all the questions in the revision kit several times – for me it was 4 times.
Re: approach to go through past papers:
My experience was:
First I try to write an answer and of course I fail to do so. Then I look at answer and try to re-perform the question.
After some time (several days/weeks later) I try to answer the question again and second time it is usually bad but better than the first time. I again look at answer and try tor re-perform it, correct my answer.
Then after some more time I try the question again, and the third/forth time it is more or less passable.
For me it took ~500 hrs of practice/revisions to pass.
Please let me know whether is it advisable to do APM before SBL?
