Mentoring Scheme: UK exams

FD4

Did you fail FD4 in 2016? Have you now failed it twice or more?

Do you intend to sit the examination again this October?

The Informals Committee is working with CIPA to offer mentoring if you have repeatedly sat one of these papers, to try to boost your self-confidence and help you pass the exam.

If you are in this situation and you would like help preparing for the 2017 exam, please email Informals Mentoring Coordinator Sara Jane Paines (sjpaines@marks-clerk.com) by 16:00 on Monday 12 June.  The Informals Committee will then work with CIPA to find you a mentor.  Please note that you must already have sat and failed FD4 in 2016, and two or more times without success to be eligible for mentoring.

If you receive mentoring for FD4, the PEB will send you a copy of your marked, examiner-annotated 2016 FD4 script, to try to help you and your mentor identify how to improve your technique for this year’s exam.  This marked script facility is only available for FD4 mentoring.

 

FD1

Did you fail FD1 in 2016? Have you now failed it twice or more?

Do you intend to sit the examination again this October?

If you failed FD1 in 2016, and wish to join the mentoring scheme you will need to use the unannotated copy that was available for download after your results were emailed to you.

If you are in this situation and you would like help preparing for the 2017 exam, please email Informals Mentoring Coordinator Sara Jane Paines (sjpaines@marks-clerk.com) by 16:00 on Monday 12 June.  The Informals Committee will then work with CIPA to find you a mentor.

In both cases your information will be treated in confidence and will be known only to Sara Jane, your mentor and the PEB (for FD4).  You will not be identified to your employer without your explicit consent.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Sara Jane.
