OCS November 2016 Schedule to turn a fail into a pass.. from Astranti

OCS November 2016 Schedule
OCS November 2016 Schedule 

One of the Top Tips from our August operational case study survey was being able to manage time, "time management is very essential to pass" one of our students responded. In my experience, I have seen too many students failing to make their revision structured enough - leaving them with gaps in their knowledge come exam time.

To help organise your revision, I have decided to share with you the schedule which our many course students will follow.
Using a schedule allows you to make sure that you are using your time as effectively as possible, ensuring that nothing is missed and meaning you're more likely to pass your exam!


Monday 19th- Official CIMA pre-seen release date - carefully read through the pre-seen case study.

Thursday 22nd- Watch the Course Videos and read through Study Text Part 1 - watch these to cement your knowledge of what's needed to pass the exam. We recommend these should be watched in synchrony with the Study Text Part 1. Watch a sample of our Course Videos

Monday 26th- Official Course Start Date
Thursday 29th- Begin to work your way through our pre-seen materials - These pre-seen case study materials helps to build an excellent foundation in preparation for the exam. The videos takes you through the whole document and highlights the important areas for you to focus on. Watch a sample of our Pre-seen Analysis video

Saturday 1st- Read through Study Text Part 2 - Study Text Part 2 should be read continuously throughout the course. The Study Text Part 2 is a condensed version of our E1, F1 and P1 texts and particularly focuses on those areas most relevant to the case study-  Read a sample chapter of our Study Text Part 2.
