Guidance from the examining team

The examining team prepares reports after each exam session to offer constructive feedback on candidates’ performance in the examinations. They are full of useful guidance for future candidates.

The reports provide insight into the types of mistake commonly made in exams, and advice on how to avoid them.

The reports provide a general commentary on candidates' performance as well as:

  • identifying technical aspects examined in the questions
  • highlighting good performance and where performance could be improved
  • explaining aspects which caused difficulty and why the difficulties arose, whether lack of knowledge, poor examination technique, for example.
