Thanks to those of you that have taken the time to complete our OCS survey. If you took the exam last month but you've not yet completed the survey please do so here: OCS Survey
We've been looking at your feedback very carefully and here is a summary of the key points:
50% of respondents found the exam "more difficult" than they expected.
In the May exam, time management was a big issue and many students emphasised the need for additional mock practise.
A huge 75% of students concluded that they should have spent more on revision of theory and ensuring they had covered the whole syllabus in-depth.
In later case study exams (MCS and SCS), technical knowledge is much less important.
More than a third of students would have focused more on analysing the pre-seen and practising through mock exams.
Here are 5 great tips from the survey for future students:
- Become an expert on time management
- Complete as many mock exams as you can
- Understand the pre-seen and relate it to the questions
- Revise all theory as any topic could come up
- Make sure you answer the question!
