Hi everyone, 

Just sat the first M6 mock and failed. Found it so very hard. Did anyone else find this one tricky? I don't really feel like my course notes covered enough of this for me to feel confident in it at all. 

Thanks in advance.

 Hello Lauren

Sorry for the late reply, but I've only just looked at forum.  I was one the older syllabus version, which ended 28 December 2019 to which their was simply BA4, BA5, BA6 and BA7 to complete.  Now its called M4, M5, M6, M7 and theirs an extra one I believe M8 which tests accross the board of all exams.

I did 1st mock BA6 on 4 Nov 2019, 75% fail

2nd Mock BA6 on 5 Nov 2019, 79% fail

I was gutted and never thought I would get it? so went over my studies

12 Nov I took live BA6 and got 87% pass. I really wished it had been more, but I was glad that I passed.

Having said that I realised the study books I was doing at home with Kaplan, (who do not, now support ICB course). The Kaplan material I have found had chunks out of it from the actual ICB exams, which is why I believe I came accross stumping questions, and because of the new syllubus with ICB, I now have to do M7 and M8 to complete. With that in mind I decided to purchase all the ICB books. And take my time so I'm ready for the exams. I'm currently wading through the M7, and believe me the ICB material is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone.

Good luck with your exams

Oh that's great news that you're getting on better with ICB's own books. They are designed to fit our syllabus which itself was designed to be very practical and prepare you for day-to-day work as a bookkeeper. The syllabus reflects what bookkeepers earn money doing. The Kaplan books have now been discontinued and replaced as they more closely followed the AAT syllabus and as a result missed vital 'chunks'.

Hi Penny

Thanks for replying. I would like to get the ICB books but finances just won't allow it for now. I'll see how I go and hopefully I can work on it enough to pass. 

 

Good luck for the rest of your exams.

 Thanks Ami

As I said above, I just can't afford the books for now so will just have to see how I go.

 

Many thanks, 

Lauren
