Key Features:

  2. Technical Knowledge Revision (E1, P1, F1): Dive into the unique application of technical knowledge from E1, P1, and F1 papers. Understand how to apply this knowledge effectively in the OCS context.
  3. Thorough Preseen Analysis: Gain a commercial perspective with a comprehensive analysis of the preseen material. Our tutor dissects the document, highlights critical information, provides real-life examples, and offers industry insights. Themed analysis weeks focus on performance, enterprise, and financial aspects.
  4. Identifying Threats and Opportunities: Delve into identifying potential threats and opportunities from P1, E1, and F1 perspectives. Get a complete analysis from each OT paper’s point of view, covering core activities and “I can statements.”
  5. Practice Writing Tasks: Avoid common pitfalls by practicing writing tasks early on, just like in an exam environment. Develop your ability to structure answers effectively. We provide 5 tasks for each paper based on the current preseen, complete with well-developed solutions.
  6. Mock Exams: Access 3 professionally crafted mock exams written by our expert PTA tutors. These meticulously designed mocks offer quality comparable to the best in the market. If you choose the Advanced or Master package, you’ll also gain access to additional mocks provided by BPP.
  7. Ethics Focus: Ethics is a vital component of every case study. We offer a condensed ethics course allowing you to apply your ethical knowledge in a real-world context.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. “I’m planning for the February sitting, but it’s currently October. When will I gain access to the preseen-related content after purchase?

  • Answer: If you’re planning for the February sitting and it’s currently October, please note that you will gain access to the preseen-related content 7 weeks prior to the exam date, which is after the November session concludes. This timing ensures that all candidates have a fair and standardized preparation period. However, you will have immediate access to all non-preseen-related resources upon your purchase. This includes comprehensive revision materials for E1, P1, and F1, as well as the OCS Kickstarter series. These resources are designed to help you build a strong foundation and prepare effectively for your exam.

2. “What if I purchase the package for the November sitting but need to reschedule for February? How can I make this change?

  • Answer: If you’ve purchased the package for the November sitting but find that you need to reschedule for February, we recommend contacting our Customer Success team immediately to explore your options. If you have not yet accessed any of the package’s contents, our team can provide you with a link to switch your sitting for a £15 fee. However, if you have already utilised parts of your current package, we’re pleased to offer a discount code for the next sitting. This discount will range between 30%-50%, depending on the extent of usage of your current package. Our aim is to support your preparation journey, adapting to your needs as they evolve.

3. “I want to begin preparing for my May exam as early as February. Will I be able to do so if I purchase the package in February for the May sitting?

  • Answer: Absolutely. Starting in February, you’ll have access to non-preseen specific content, including the kickstarter and revisions. For the May (and November) sitting, we will release the preseen-specific portion on the day the preseen is made available, ensuring you have ample time to prepare.
