    No - don't give up!

    Do you know what areas you are struggling with? Were there any questions on the CBA that you were unsure how to answer? Have you completed the practice CBAs on the AAT website? Sooo many questions, sorry.

    there were areas i was unsure about but i was so confident today. am gutted. have gone through the book and done practice after practice. they have also but their re sit fees up from £33 to £53. there was also a big **** up today as when i got to exam they had me down to do ap1 instead of ap2. nearly an hour later i finally started exam so that didnt help. they were adament that i could not sit my ap2 if i hadnt passed my ap1 which was rubbish as it was just kaplans policy and not aat's.

    i am now reaching for the wine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi

    I may be reading this wrong but do you mean you haven't passed AP1, would hate to think I was trying to do 2 before fully competent on 1. Sorry if I misread.

    i am going to move on and do my ap1 next week. it does seem silly i havent passed one yet but i have just been doing ap1 and 2 alternatively to have a break from each one when i fail. have still got cash management and spreadsheets to pass yet too. sometimes it does all get too much. i just want to pass them all before xmas so i can start the new year studying technician level.

    to cut the cost of the course i have decided to go it alone and home teach myself. if, after xmas i am still struggling i may have to find a learning provider and admit defeat! its nice to know i have a fellow struggler and hope you pass soon!

    Hi Clarlou,

    Sorry to hear you are struggling, are there any particular parts you feel weak at? I know everyone learns differently but maybe it would be easier to study them seperately?

    Its definately a tricky course, I struggle quite alot too so you are not on your own!

    Good luck with your studies

    Hey don't give up!

    Have you tried doing some mock exams - maybe they will help your confidence as sometimes if you're very nervous, its hard to settle into an exam, but if you're more confident your nerves won't be so bad.

    Good luck! x

    No emotion for a hug, so *hugs* :)
