What should your study sessions focus on?

As you’re planning to study for ITC, let’s talk about what you should be prepping and what you should be focussing on. 

I run an ITC Board Course and I focus on Skills instead of Knowledge… you can see the course here:

My ITC Course has a pass rate of approx 70%, so it’s super-effective… but it does require work… so… 

WHAT work!?

What 'Skills' do you need?

The Skills I refer to:

  • Planning the case study
  • Reading and interpreting the required
  • Planning your answer
  • Writing your answer (communication)
  • Evaluating your answers while you’re studying
  • Prioritising and ‘fixing’ the right stuff that you need in order to improve marks
  • Manage the stress that pops up all along the way and prevents you from thinking

What does SAICA say you should focus on?

At the beginning of the video above, I refer to SAICA’s review comments, because you need to go to ‘the source’. What does SAICA say that students struggle with? What common mistakes are students making? 

SAICA publishes ‘Examiners Comments’ after every exam. You can find this with the past papers on SAICA’s website. They discuss the ‘stuff’ that students struggle with that generally costs them their pass

I also recorded a video on this a while back, along with how I built my ITC course to address this:
(It’s fairly long, the first 25 minutes are me working through SAICA’s comments, the rest is my course)

If you can relate, or have a query...
