Welcome to my unique Diagnostic Assessment. This is designed for the retaking student who is perhaps uncertain as to what went wrong the last time the paper was sat. Such uncertainty is common in APM. Did you know enough? Was it a technique issue? Was it poor writing style –are you too succinct or to verbose?
This assessment will help you understand where you may have gone wrong and, crucially identifies the areas where you need to improve.
You will complete a knowledge test covering all major syllabus areas. It will inform on your overall knowledge and identify where you need to spend extra time.
There is also a writing test comprising a short 15 mark question which is submitted for feedback. You get feedback on your ability to apply effectively, structure your answers, writing style, technical content and your ability to score professional skills marks.
Both these short tests will guide you on what you need to work on to secure a pass next time.
