Revision technique for CR

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

In this session, an experienced CR tutor will explain a number of important general principles to help you revise effectively for CR. We will cover both the Financial Reporting and Audit & Assurance elements of the paper separately as these require different techniques. We will then explain the benefits of what we term “batch-based revision”. By the end of the session, you will have a much better idea of how to plan and manage your revision schedule.

Ethics for CR

DATE AND TIME

6 October 2021, 12.30 UK time

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

FREE

In this session, an expert CR tutor will explain some key writing techniques to ensure that you maximise your score in the CR Ethics questions. We know that many students tend to “disrespect” the Ethics element of the paper assuming that it is an easy area because it is only narrative in nature. Whilst we agree that the Ethics element is relatively straightforward, there are still some useful exam technique points to learn which can improve your score further. As Ethics is the only topic area that we know for certain will be tested on every CR paper, it makes sense to maximise your score in this element. By the end of the session, you will have a much better understanding of which Ethics areas tend to be tested and how the examiners like you to set out your response.

This session takes place at 12.30 UK time on Wednesday 6 October 2021 and is free of charge. Click the button below to book the session via Zoom.

Unlocking the secrets of the CR markschemes

DATE AND TIME

12 October 2021, 12.30 UK time

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

£35

In this session, an experienced CR tutor will explain some patterns in how both the Financial Reporting and Audit & Assurance parts of the syllabus have been assessed in the past papers. We will provide you with some “rules of thumb” to help you estimate the likely mark allocation for different parts of the paper – vital to time management, given that the examiners do not tell candidates how many marks are available for each part of a question. By the end of the session, you will be much more confident in your time management and you will be able to avoid spending too long on immaterial elements of the paper (and too little time on the parts that really matter).

Maximising your mark in Question 2

DATE AND TIME

13 October 2021, 12.30 UK time

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

£35

In this session, an expert CR tutor will provide some tips and tricks on how to estimate the mark allocation in Question 2 and how to secure the easy marks every time, regardless of whether your suggested treatment is technically incorrect. We will also look at some patterns in how the different financial reporting topics tend to be given marks in the past papers. We will also review the most frequently tested Financial Reporting topics and we will explain why what we term “batch-based” revision is so effective when it comes to Financial Reporting. By the end of the session, you will know exactly what to do both before and during the examination when it comes to the financial reporting aspects of the CR exam.

Dealing with a tricky Q3

DATE AND TIME

19 October 2021, 12.30 UK time

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

£35

In this session, an experienced CR tutor will explain how to deal with the rare situations in which Question 3 is not the type of question that candidates seem to want to see i.e. a risks and procedures question which covers various different auditing areas. Sometimes, the examiner will instead set a question that does not relate to risks and tests or which covers risks and tests in one very narrow part of the syllabus. Candidates can often panic in this style of question so we will help you understand what to do. By the end of this session, you will understand how to stay calm and allocate your time effectively if an annoying Question 3 pops up.

Assurance for CR

DATE AND TIME

20 October 2021, 12.30 UK time

LEngth of Session

1 hour

Cost

£35

In this session, an experienced CR tutor will review the available past paper examples of Assurance. Although statutory audit tends to be the focus of most CR past papers, Assurance is fully examinable and can catch students out in the rare situations when it is tested. We will therefore review some key exam technique points to help ensure that you are not one of the candidates who is caught out by testing of this area. By the end of this session, you will be much more confident in dealing with any “curve balls” that the examiners might throw on this topic area.

What our
students say

A few kind words from the more than 20,000 satisfied students we have worked with over the years.

I took part in your webinar this morning and wanted to give my feedback - it was fantastic! It gave a great overview of how to prepare for CR and helped me decide what other Paradigm Shift Masterclasses I want to attend. I would be very interested in joining an SBM Masterclass if you're putting one on and also a similar Case overview too! Thank you very much for scheduling this event!

I attended the live Masterclass session for CR and found it extremely useful and helpful! The tips were great, and helped to reduce my fears around CR. I would love it if these sessions also run for SBM and Case too!
