Difference between advanced (level 3) and professional? (Level 4)


I've just finished my level 3 and am going to do my level 4 in September. Can anyone tell me if there was much of a jump? Any tips?

    Personally, I don't think there is.

    Dedicate a couple of hours a night to study and you'll be fine.

    if you are finding you are struggling with a subject then buy different providers books as they explain things in completely different ways.

    Most of the high mark questions are written, so if you don't know or can't explain the theory in answers quickly in an exam then the passmark becomes that much more difficult to attain. Probably helps if you're working in a finance role because the learning will be applying some structure to what you may already know. There are easier parts in L4 and harder parts in L3, but overall it is harder, that's why its the professional level :)
