Welcome to a the Leeds Exam Group. This group is for those who have achieved UKATA Diploma level and are working towards CTA Exam.
If you are looking for a supportive and structured exam preparation programme – read on.
What happens in the group?
For the new 2020/21 academic year, the group meets online for 8 days. The days are spread during the year – to ensure that group members get the full benefit of reflection and development time between Group days.
The year kicks of with an intensive weekend in September 2020 to set the scene and giving you a chance to really get to grips with what you want to achieve during the year. The group then meets for a further 6 Saturdays throughout the academic year – ending in June 2021.
Beginning with a clear learning and development contract, members of the group will put together a personal development plan with the CTA exam as the end goal. To ensure you get the support you need on your journey to exam, each Exam Group day will be an agenda day set by the attendees. Activities can include:
- Planning or writing sections of the case study
- Mock exams
- How to choose an exam tape
- Understanding the exam process
- Exam preparation and coaching
- Personal process work
