Returning to study can be an excellent opportunity to reflect on your previous exam experiences and think about what you'll do differently this time.
Try and think about your whole learning experience and how effective it was. Be honest and objective and think about the positives along with any negatives.
If you have been away from study for a long period of time, it can be a good idea to work little and often, building knowledge consistently as you go. Don’t leave things to the last 2/3 weeks – this approach doesn’t work with professional exams.
A large part of moving forward is understanding where you are now. A key resource for this are the self-check quizzes on the Student Virtual Learning Centre. These are designed to help you check and refresh your underlying core knowledge for a range of Applied Skills and Strategic Professional exams and are an excellent first step in exam preparation.
