CBA in Prof Ethics, Indirect Tax and Cash Management

Hi all,

These are the three remaining units i have to complete level 3, Ive been revising hard and am preparing to take them over the next 2 months, someone in our office has recently passed the Tax CBA, however she has said that the exam actually had reference sections which you can used throughout the test which was the only reason they passed (after hardly any revision) is this correct, as it seems that I am wasting my time if they help you with the answers, and if it is correct is it the same procedure for the other 2 exams??

Thanks

    Hello,
    the ITax does have a reference bar to the side, but I would recomend studding also.
    I would say you need a knowledge of tax and make sure you know the VAT form as big part of exam.

    Cash Management and Prof Ethics are the same as the other exams, personally I fould Prof Ethics the worst. Due to being a very dry subject.
    With Only 3 to go you will be level 3 qualified in no time. Just dont rush.
    Good Luck

    Thanks, hopefully it wont be long now, so the Prof Ethics and Cash Management DO NOT have the reference bar then?

    Thanks for the help

    I took tax exam in july last this year, we did no revision for it but had a class on it before hand. All the answers you need to know are in the info menu in exam, but you will need to learn about a tax return and how to fill one in

    If you want to pass your Indirect Tax (ITX) exam only then reference provided on the exam screen is sufficient (though you need to be familiar with the VAT return form). If you want to implement the theory to work then there is no alternative then studying.

    How did you do in your Costs and Revenues exam?

    Good Luck
