I would need your advice please.
The only paper I failed so far is F8, and I failed it twice 48% and 49%.
I will attempt it again this december (with P3), but I don’t know “how” to do it this time;
Previously I did many practices from BPP Kit, I did read all articles, guides, retake guides etc… From the retake guide 2nd time, I did concentrate on the structure of my answers (I was writing too much before, the double compared with my 2nd attempt!), I thought it was the reason why, as the guide says that close to 50% that’s a technical issue, not specially knowledge. And when I was comparing my answers with BPP Kit answers it seems to me that I was saying the same thing.. (knowing that english is not my 1st language like a lot of people here, but could it be a reason? not understanding what I write??)
So now for this 3rd attempt, I don’t know how to study it, how to revise it, what to improve,…
It seems to me it takes this time someone/a teacher to read my work and specifically tell me what is wrong but….
-1st: based on your knowledge and feedback from previous students please tell me what you think: how to retake it, what you think would be the pbl, what to do…
-2: do you or other students know if any providers like BPP,… offer online/distance “correction” of students works? not only 1 or twice just before the exam date, but several correction with feedback all through the preparation of the exam?
-Also would it be a good idea to wait to prepare P7 and re-attempt F8 at the same time?? (F8 is my last F paper)
Thanks a lot for your help

So close both times! How disappointing.
Although you do the questions and compare your answers with the model answers it is very difficult to be objective and to see where your answer might be flawed. ou need someone else to read your work – at least an exam’s worth.
I don’t know of any specific provider who offers distance correction: that’s not to say they don’t do it, simply that I haven’t looked for it.
Start by looking at the web-sites of BPP, Kaplan and Becker and see if you can find some sort of question marking service. (OpenTuition does not offer such a service). You can also throw the net wider by Googling. For me, this brought up First Intuition which offers an on-line revision course with a tutor marked mock exam;
Obviously there is a fee and it does more than just exam marking.
I think you should wait until you pass F8 before going to P7. don’t know what other exams you have passed, but for P7 is is important to have studied P2.
