General Guides

Many students approach their first case study with trepidation. They don’t know what to expect or how best to prepare for this exam. A good starting point is to review past exam papers to highlight the key topics that get tested. Are all subjects (E2, F2 and P2) equally represented or not? Are there certain topics within the three subjects that the examiners like to focus on? Are there other topics that examiners rarely test?
