Hi All,

I failed this exam back in May!
I am now resitting on Monday after having finished all my other exams and my project although im still waiting on results for ICAS and Personal Tax.
I have done numerous practice exams , studied none stop for days after work and all day today, but ive just attempted the online practice test and failed!
Im currently reading chapters of the book and making notes and flash cards to help with standards.
And doing more practice tests to help with adjustments.
I still have tomorrow of course, but im worried that if i cant make this stuff stick i will have to cancel this resit.
Any more ideas of what i can do to force me to remember for Monday???
Im definitely getting better with the adjustments, although im still not always balancing!
Just need to know what's the most important thing to concentrate on tommorrow as trying to focus on everything now definitely isnt helping!
Thanks in advance

    Hello Nicola

    Have you attempted the greenlight tests as this will give you a good indicator as to your areas of weakness. Another suggestion is to print the answers to the exam off and work through the exam and check the answers against yours and see if you can identify your area of weakness.

    Don't over study as you will start to make silly mistakes.

    Good luck with the exam on Monday, I'll be thinking of you and hoping all goes well.

    Hi Jo

    Yes ive done the greenlight and am getting 70/ 80 and 90 %
    When i have gotten things incorrect they have been in multiple drop downs and 1 out of say 4 is not correct! Your right about the stupid mistakes lol i make them all the time, mainly thru getting tired!
    Ive decided to print of the answers as you say and look as i go along, Ive only been checking answers pof my paper tests, which i thought id been doing ok on

    Thanks again Jo

    That sounds great! You must be feeling calmer this time now that you have passed the practice assessments.

    Good luck once again and speak to you soon!
