Well 18th March is this Friday which means i hope you have booked and paid for your CIPS exams.
I have many people who write to me about CIPS and how to get through the exams because they want to get to the highest level in the shortest time possible.
Here is the thing, unless you are a full time student or borderline genius it is in your best interest to pace yourself. Space out the exams, plan yourself per year in a way that you can manage. The challenge as i have mentioned before is the CIPS exams (especially Level 5 & 6 ) are TOUGH examiners are expecting more from students. I dont know if they have always been tough but they are and the reality check is you have to prepare better so that you dont flop any papers.
If you believe you can succeed in CIPS you will. It starts with having the right mind set i.e that it is possible and then planning yourself across the year. You alone know your schedule, we have 3 exam sittings per year for Africa, it is doable.
