Exam tips released but don’t crash like this guy…

Obtaining a professional qualification is a tough but ultimately rewarding journey.

It’s important to appreciate that whilst your studying before the exam is the key part of your journey, it’s also vital that you keep calm during the exam and focus on good exam technique.

We’ve just released our CIMA exam tips (the ACCA tips will follow at the end of this month) and whilst only the examiner knows what’s in the exams, our tips highlight areas that we would pay close attention to if we were sitting the exams.
