Exam A Preparation

Welcome to the exam preparation!

We can imagine that you are already excited (and hopefully not to anxious) about your first assessment exam. Let us help you get the best result out of it!
In order to prepare you in the best possible way, we have listed a to-do list with useful information regarding your first exam; you can find a quiz that covers the most important theoretical points of the last weeks, as well as, a false video that shows you typical mistakes that can happen during the exam.

So first of all, make sure to check the following items:
1) Read and understand the exam procedure documents! You can access them in the resources section on the right!
2) Practice, practice, practice!!!
3) Relax! Exams are only feedback on where you stand at the moment and this feedback is extremly valuable. There is always a retake!

Watch the following video and try to figure out if you can spot mistakes that were being made. The solution will be given at the end of the video.
Be aware that the first exam is only partially case-based. This means that you will start with a case and afterwards you will get questions and tasks that are usually random
and not related to the case anymore. This is exactly what we did in the following video:
