Revision Course Objective and Approach:

The revision course is planned to prepare you for success in the Principles of Taxation exam. This is our key objective. We assume that you have done some preparatory work prior to the commencement of the course and that we can build on this through the duration of the course.

The course will consist of 10 revision-based teaching phases. Lectures will follow the content of BPP course notes and will include extensive practice on questions from the ICAEW Question Bank.

You will be set assignments at the end of each lecture session. All assignments will be reviewed/ assessed by the course tutor in the following session.

Two Progress Tests (PT) will be set for completion at the end each day during the course and reviewed by the course tutor. One Mock Exam (ME) will be set for completion before the end of the course and will be marked by the course tutor. A second ME will be issued for you to practice on at the end of the revision phase of the course.

The revision course is interactive and you will be encouraged to participate in class discussions.

“Completeness” is a key audit assertion. To meet the key course objective of exam success you need to be complete in your exam preparation. The revision course is aimed at exposure/ coverage to/ of most exam matters.
