Auditing: Sim Exam Feedback Course

How to improve your Auditing exam results

Why is the Sim Exam feedback so valuable?

Students mark their work, but this only tells you whether you got the mark on the markplan. What students struggle with, is identifying WHY they didn’t get the mark. 

Mostly, students feel that they need to revise their work, they need more ‘knowledge’. In truth most of the students I work with need to work on Communication and Application. 

Providing feedback based on YOUR attempt allows me to tell you exactly what you need to work on for each topic. 

More importantly, I can tell you HOW to fix this. It might be a little revision, it might be understanding, it might be application or communication. 

Which students should do this?

  • If you're prepping for final Auditing PGDA / CTA exams
  • If you're writing supplementaries for PGDA / CTA
  • If you're prepping for ITC
  • If you need feedback on what to work on
  • If you need exam technique advice
  • If you need guidance on what, and HOW to prep

I will give you feedback on what you need to work on, and more importantly… HOW to work on it

How does this work?

  • Attempt Sim Exam #1 under exam conditions
  • Mark your attempt, and write down what you struggled with
  • Scan and send me your attempt, AND the case study you did your planning on
  • I'll give you a feedback report detailing how you're doing, what you need to work on, and how to 'fix' and improve the areas you need.
  • Apply the 'fixes' I've given you, practice them a little, then attempt Sim Exam #2
  • I'll give you an indication of your progress, and further 'fixes' to work on
  • Please leave me about 4 days to provide your feedback, and about a week to work on the 'fix' that I recommend

What if you need Revision?

  • I have online courses for some of the trickier Auditing topics, which are all exam technique-based
  • If I feel you really need one or more of these, I'll give you a 30% discount on any that you need (Most students don't need this!)
  • The feedback report mostly includes the 'how to' of the fix you need. (ie: you'll know how to fix your work after going through the feedback report)
  • We can set up a one-on-one session if you feel you need to (This is generally not needed)

What if you have a supp that you're writing in a month or so?

  • This will REALLY help you! Do it ASAP!
  • Don't spend hours doing post-mortems on your exams. I'd prefer to see what you're able to do RIGHT NOW. The sooner I can see what you're doing, the faster we can fix what we need to
  • You WILL have forgotten some theory. That's fine. Don't fall into the trap of 'revision' with so little time left. You can work on the revision you need THROUGH the questions.

You’ll want to do some revision first…

In all the years I’ve done this, students need to work on their communication MORE than their knowledge. They do know enough to pass, but they’re not communicating it properly. 

I have never come across a supp student who I’ve advised to go study theory first. Once I see their work, it’s ALWAYS communication and application they need to practice. Sure, their knowledge needs work, it always will… but this is NEVER the dealbreaker!

Student comments:


Yes. If you follow my advice.

It will make a lot of sense, and it does look simple. But it does take time to practice yourself. 

It works, you can see that, but you need to GET TO QUESTIONS and practice it

I’m always happy to refund students if my content doesn’t help them. 
However, I will always have a discussion with you first to identify what’s going wrong. In some cases, we need to adjust the approach a little. 

This will not work for you if you do not DO the stuff yourself. It all makes perfect sense when I do it, but you have to practice yourself!
