The oral preparation revision day will prepare candidates for the oral exam by setting expectations for the day of their oral in terms of format, style and types of questions. The core subjects will be revised and guidance will be given as to how to focus revision for the Knowledge and Practitioner specialisms.
It is recommended that the course is taken approximately one week before the date of your oral exam to allow you a little time for extra revision.
Many candidates feel nervous about the oral exam, this is natural and we cannot combat this completely, but the revision day equips you well and will help to build your confidence.
The oral exam has its own syllabus which will be provided to delegates on the Oral Revision Prep day. This can also be found on the www.BCS.Org website
This is a one day course and does not include the exam. You will need to register for the exam with the BCS and book this yourself. We will help you with the registration process on request.
