Sat the exam three times now. Results 37, 31 and 37 again in December 2019.
I feel I was more prepared for that last exam than any other I have sat before but still no pass. Even in the exam I thought I had achieved enough to pass the exam but the results dont reflect this.
Where am I going wrong, what more can I do?
I read the technical articles
I had revised the whole syllabus
Done practice questions from all topic areas
Sat the exam in December 2019 and failed . Looking for a study partner in East london and Buzz me anyone is interested. Thanks
Sal, I’ve also sat the exam 3 times, and got 48%, 38% and then 48%.
It’s giving me a headache now.
Most students wrongly think ATX-UK is mostly computational which is not so. They can conveniently tackle the computational aspects of mostly question 1 about iht and cgt. The other questions usually throw them off-guard since its mostly explain about various tax issues. EXPLAINING. On 2 Corp tax is explain, explain. Not forgetting the small details(especially CT).
Anyway to pass, master losses(individual n Co), overseas aspects, VAT, and CT. Assuming IHT n CGT is straight forward for most candidates.
Speaking from experience from feed back by students who didn’t pass.
Remember : Losses, Overseas aspects, VAT, and CT. The devil is in those details.
Remember again on the assumption IHT and CGT straig
ht forward. The two topics is where those who fail get their 30-40%.
The remaining 20%…….., now you know where it hides.

Your advice is much appreciated Gerald. What i have observed is that when it comes to the question practice its not a child’s play.
