Mock tests

When should one start doing the mocks for the Dec level 1 exam (2019)? Can someone please help with a timeline? For e.g. by which month should one target to finish the course and start doing mocks. or can it be done parallely with the course?

Right after the exam

Start at least 2 months before the exam (so about mid-October), after you’ve finished your first reading and review of the entire curriculum.

Over the next 2 months you should periodically update your notes (as you find mistakes from doing mocks and practice questions) and review them. If you’ve done every mock, all the BBs and EOCs, and online topic tests 2-3 times, and can remember your notes (which should be condensed into one notebook), you’ll be in good shape.

It might seem overkill for level 1, but this level of diligence will also be good practice for your preparation for level 2 and level 3, if you get that far.

October 15th.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Huh I guess you are just a troll then, so it wasn’t that you actually had a valid point about ethics or not!

And sadly, not even one of the funny trolls lol

Personally I find it useful to focus on practice questions and mocks 30-45 days before the exam.
