I am a bit worried with regards to the November exam sittings as I am doing re-sits which have already cost me six months on where I thought I would be with the exams.
I am re-taking P2 and E1 after failing them with 48 and 38, respectively. I studied through Kaplan when I took these originally in May but it seemed that what was taught and what actually ended up on the exam paper where two different things.
The problem I have is that I am now self studying as my new employer does not provide financial support. I am also unable to pay for the classes myself.
The exams are in 56 days time and I haven’t really started yet as I can’t bring myself to open the textbook after being at work all day followed by a couple of hours at the gym most nights.
The good news is that I remember quite a bit of what I was taught so I am not starting from scratch.
My main problem is motivation now that I am not in a classroom. I have tried to use the SQ5R technique for getting through the chapters but again its motivation.
Facebook was a massive issue for me as it is quite addictive but I have managed to bring myself to close my account which limits my distractions.
Does anybody else find themselves in the same situation and if so, what are you doing about it?
