You are not alone. Mock papers can help you prepare & the Forum can help you stay motivated.
Mocks or 'Practice Papers' are available to purchase from the online Shop 24 hours a day and are available immediately. You can also call ICB to order a mock or ask your Accredited Training Provider.
Mocks make an excellent tool for assessment preparation and ICB strongly suggests that every student attempt at least one. They give a good idea of what the actual assessment is like and can help you learn to pace yourself to complete the questions in time.
Please be aware that each assessment and mock may only cover part of the ICB syllabus and you should therefore not assume that because a topic has been omitted from the mock it will not appear in the assessment itself. Knowledge of the full ICB syllabus is essential.
All mocks are online timed 'simulations' that mirror the actual assessment experience so they make a great final step before doing the real thing.
The time allowed for completing your mock paper is identical to that for the live paper. However you have a period of 28 days in which to access the mock (rather than 14 days for the live paper). Once booked, your online mock will be available immediately under your MyICB. Where mock assessments are a combination of online questions and computerised downloads your result will be graded only on the online sections. You will need to download the model answers for all computerised sections and check your reports against these.
