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.

One Progress Test (PT) and one Mock Exam (ME) will be issued to you to practice towards the end of the of the course. Please submit it to your tutor by the timeline set for marking.

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.
