I recently sat for the E3 exam and couldn’t get through, I don’t know where I went wrong and i’m guessing it’s the way questions were given at the exam. Most of them were not direct theory but rather application of it.
What should be my next step? More question practice or Focus more on theory? And ideally how long should i take to re-sit the exam?
Thank You.December 7, 2018 at 6:23 pm
Sorry to hear about your E3 problem.
Assuming you are reasonably confident about your E3 knowledge, I think you should concentrate on question practice. I find the really difficult ones are ‘select all that apply’. For those and simple MCQs, try going at them in two directions. So, if it asks you to select all that apply, also consider those that do not apply and concentrate on resolving choices that overlap. Similarly, where yoh have to pick one answer from four, actively consider why the rejected ones should be rejected as well as considering why you have selected a particular answer.December 7, 2018 at 7:27 pm
Thank You for the response Ken!
Ideally would one week be sufficient to re-sit the exam? After completing more question practice?December 8, 2018 at 7:54 am
It depends on many factors, like how much time you can study in the week, how close you were to passing and your affinity with the paper.
A week could be enough, but I would tent to suggest two to give time to study questions thoroughly.December 10, 2018 at 10:25 am
I got 97 marks. And i hope to complete question practice in two days and re-sit the exam. Is it too soon?December 11, 2018 at 4:58 pm
Have a go!
