I have written P1 3 times now and have failed.
I have the BBP handbook and the BBP Objective book (2017/2018)
I worked trough the objective book questions a couple of times and i went trough the 2015 objective handbook as well.
I do not know what else to do to pass this test.
Only having trouble with P1.
Any advice on how i will pass the 4th time?October 27, 2018 at 6:49 pm #479974daniyaladhami
hey liezlvd, I failed P1 3 times as well and my scores were 88,91 and 95. for the fourth attempt I bought and used CIMA APTITUDE 1 and 2. That gave me some 450+ questions to attempt and practice. I would also recommend that you get the Kaplan Study text and give it a thorough read.
For the exam I kept running out of time so the attempt when I finally cleared I first attempted all theoretical questions first and kept flagging the rest. I moved on and then after theory questions were done I attempted the calculation ones but didnt spent more than a minute on each, whichever I could not solve I left as flagged and attempted it at the very end. I remarkably had a full 7 minutes after attempting all questions this way and the aptitude really HELPED LIKE REALLY HELPED. try again and dont panic during the examJanuary 2, 2019 at 8:06 am #499642AravindhJ

Hi All – I am really struggling with this subject – can anyone tell me if theory questions form more of the actual exam that calculations? With working from home and studying my attention to detail and concentration is really gone out the window and I feel I will never pass this exam – I am to sit it this Saturday so any advice on whether to focus more on the theory or calculation questions would be greatly appreciated – Thanks EmmaSeptember 14, 2020 at 4:50 pm #585589Dev12345
I failed P1 on Friday (11th) for the first time. I would say there about 70% theory questions and 30% calculations. I would definitely ensure you have gone through all of the theory in chapters in enough detail – could not stress this enough!
Ensure you understand the different calculations from Throughput costing to marginal costing etc and the variances, as there are a few questions around this!
I’m hoping to retake next month – let me know if you have any other questions!
