CM Exam Preparation Course
The IStructE Thames Valley Regional group is looking to run a chartership exam preparation course starting in approximately May 2017. We would like to gather interest within the region to see how best to run the course and where.
Please register to let us know if you would be interested in attending a course this year and your preference for the course location between Oxford, Reading and Newbury.
Depending on numbers, we are currently envisaging the course looking something like:
17th May – First Session;
Cover: Introductions including to each other, intro and overview of the exam including how the exam runs, timings, creating a folder etc, mentor/advise on Part A Scheme design.
Homework would be set to try the part A of a set question. (everyone does the same question).
24th May – Second Session;
Cover: Review and discuss Part A homework, mentor/advise on Part B of the exam.
Homework is to try Part B of the set question.
31st May – Third Session;
Cover: Review and discuss Part B homework, Discuss full paper and potentially other questions. Any queries from the floor.
Homework is to complete a full exam question.
7th June – Forth Week;
Cover: Review and discuss full question homework. Provide a forum for any other questions. If time allows, run through a few other questions/parts of questions depending on what the candidates want. This session could potentially be dropped if there wasn't sufficient interest.
If you are sitting the exam in July there would then be approximately one month to continue preparation before the big day. This course would be open to anyone wanting to participate even if you are not sitting the exam this summer as you may find it a useful insight. The cost of the course would be split by those attending but we would aim for this not to exceed £100. Full arrangements and cost would be provided by us before any commitment from yourself would be required.
If you have any queries or feedback please feel free to get in contact.
