I am self- studying SBL and plan to sit Sep 2019 exam. At this stage, I found the theories in SBL are not difficult to understand, but I found it’s so difficult to apply the knowledge to exam questions. It seems broad reading also important and I heard newspapers and magazines(financial times or the economics) are helpful to develop commercial acumen which would be tested in the exam.
I understand the skill of understanding and integrating information from newspapers or articles cannot be achieved just in one or two months.
how can I improve my skills to understand exam questions? knowing what the question requires?
should I read more newspapers or should I focus on past exam questions?
would it be helpful by also reading the old syllabus P1&P3 past papers? I have looked a few past papers and it looks including case study too. if it helps, would it be most recent past papers helpful?
how should I improve my exam skills, such as time management in a short period?
Do not read more newspapers. Focus on exam questions. Exams are developed about 12 months in advan e so will not refer to very recent world events. Questions are stand alone so will hold all the information you need.
I suggest you stay away from old unadapted P1 and P3 questions, and would suggest you buy a revision kit from, say, BPP.
Concentrate on questions.
