I have been taking the P5 paper many times but unfortunately did not pass. Can you pls advise what the examiner is looking for – i mean how should we structure the answer and how much should we ellaborate. From previous sittings, when I wrote briefly in exams, i got more marks than when I go into details.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties.
Focus on performance management – the name of the paper (almost).
This involves deciding:
What is meant by good performance?
How can it be measured?
How can it be managed?
The examiner does not try to trick you:
Look carefully at the requirements.
Analyse the information that has been provided
Ask yourself what you would do or recommend if you were really in that situation rather than answering a theoretical exam question.
I’m afraid that I can give no general advice on layout or detail as those depend on the question requirements and the marks available.
I don’t know where you are, but it might be worthwhile seeing if you could attend some sort of questoion-based revision day so that you can get feedback on your answers.July 19, 2016 at 4:35 am #327454bhambhanisidMember

I will be appearing for the exam in the month of September as I couldn’t clear it in June(first attempt). Could you please tell me about the question based revision classes that you have mentioned in the above post.
My plan for Sept is to quickly go through the study text once again as I don’t intend to spend much time on it. I will then focus on the revision kit which happens to be the key element. Please advice if this approach would be appropriate.
Also please let us know on the changes in the P5 portion starting September 2016.
Thanks and Regards
