We have identified a direct correlation between pass rates and attempting practice exams:
- 82% of learners who attempt and submit all practice exams pass their real exam
- 73% of learners who attempt and submit one practice exam pass their real exam
- Only 58% of learners pass their exam if they do not attempt and submit a practice exam
Mock exams are an essential component when preparing for your real exam. They mimic the real exam experience with exam style questions, allowing you to practice your time management and improve exam technique.
At the start of your course you are given a mock exam deadline timetable – make sure you submit them on time! Our experienced markers will provide feedback on your marked script which will ensure you can work on specific areas before the real exam.
Attend all classes
Another thing you can do to improve your chances of success in your real exam is to attend every day of your course.
When we analysed student exam results from past exam sittings we found that learners with 100% attendance had a much higher pass rate compared to those who missed one or more days.
Of course, we all understand that there are times when you might not be able to make it to class, such as illness, but if you do have to miss a class it is vital that you contact your tutor to discuss what has been missed and make sure you catch up using the online lectures on FI Learn. The key is to stay on track, engaged and focused.
