I will not do a question If I feel I'm not ready. I'll be making summaries, revise, changing study plans and everything but doing questions.
When I do eventually do the question and get stuck, its back to the drawing board, let me master the basics, more summaries and go through this whole cycle again.
And when the exams are here, and I realise I need to do these questions afterll and my summaries were just a waste of time or a negative coping mechanism to face reality."
I have finally passed CTA Level 2, thank you for your guidance, wise words and encouragement.
You kept me going through some dark moments
