There are 2 mocks available for BA5 ,I did them both - one was really easy, the other was more difficult. The more difficult of the two was very reflective of the actual exam, as was T/Link's mock. I know it' s not much of a consolation but give the second mock a go before booking your resit. I got 100% for BA5 and going over the mocks really helped. Mocks are allocated randomly so it's just luck of the draw which you get first. Always do both mocks it's worth extra tenner - I did for BA 5, 6 and 7 and was definitely worth it.
Best of luck with your studies
Thanks - I guess it's reassuring to know that the second mock reflects the exam a little better. However, I do feel that ICB need to take down the easy mock as surely this is just guiding candidates into failing the actual exam and wasting money in the process. I am not asking ICB to put up carbon copies but surely they both need to relfect the real exam - the long and the short of it is, if I had gotten the "real" mock then i'd have passed the exam and saved myself the cost of paying for the second mock and the resit.
Tesco couldn't sell you a mars bar adversting it helps you lose weight when it doesn't so why should ICB sell you a mock designed to help you pass the exam when it doesn't - it infact makes you more likely to fail!
Let this be a warning to anyone reading this - if you get a BA5 mock and it's easy be warned it's nothing like the actual exam. I guess you could just always buy a second mock but this is more money going into ICB on the back of their own short comings.
I will also contacting ICB regarding this as the mock really IS that easy compared to the real exam that it's laughable - it needs to be replaced. That said, I have never come across anything like this in any other mock/exam so let's hope it's an isolated incident.
