PEAF (Ethics) CBA

Has anyone taken the PEAF CBA for the new standards? Was it as quick and easy as the practice assessment?

I have the exam on Monday and am sitting here with literally hundreds of pages of notes and I really don't know how in-depth I need to revise.

    I came out the exam thinking I had failed as it was nothing like the practise exam there were the easy questions asking what ethics principle the situation was. However, there seemed to be a lot on the engagement letter and record holding etc which is not really what I was prepared for since it was such a small area in the tuition.

    The thing that I have found with CBA's so far is there are at least 5 questions in them which you will have never seen or have practised before.

    Thanks for replying, I'll make sure I read through those sections again tomorrow!

    It was nothing like the practice exam. Which was easy. Alot of my class failed it and are retaking it, some have even failed it twice. I passed first time, but I must admit I noticed that they had reworded alot of the questions to sound VERY similar but with a different answer. (Like trick ones, i recon alot of my class didnt notice this tbh.) The whole revision I did for this CBA was the read through the practice exam twice. Alot of it is common sense imo, and rewording the question. Good Luck
