I wanted to give the taxation exam in december 2021 sitting but I had not completed the course. I am finding it difficult to prepare for the taxation exam for march sitting because the lectures are very long and they are plenty. If I don’t give the taxation exam in march then the syllabus would change and I would have to go again through the lectures and the notes that would mean more than a year would be spent preparing for this exam. I tried to study regularly but the chapters are so big that it takes five days or a week to complete one chapter. One week per chapter would mean four chapters per month. Or even if I manage to complete 5 chapters per month, then if I started studying from october then it would mean a total of 25 chapers by the end of february assuming that I would study regularly. That would mean that I have no time to complete the exam practice kit. If I try to study longer then my brain seems to get tired and I can not absorb the information. It takes time to understand the lectures. If I study longer then my brain gets so frustrated that I have to spend another whole day without studying so that my brain gets reset to be able to study.
What should I do
How to increase my brain capacity
Is there any shortcut way to completing the lectures
How to prepare for this exam by completing the lectures notes and practice kit by the end of february. Otherwise I would have to spend another six months preparing for the new syllabusNovember 17, 2021 at 11:11 am #640861Tax TutorMember

Tax is indeed a large subject but the chapters are of different lengths and every chapter should not take you a week to go through – a week is equally not a meaningful measure, it depends on how many study hours you have in any week.
There is no shortcut to completing the lectures but you should certainly be able to prepare for the March exam if you are already part way through your studies – if not, then yes there will be some changes from the June 2022 exam but the vast majority of what you learn now will still be relevant for June with the main differences arising being small changes in rates and allowances which do not change the rules – just the numbers!
