Operating as usual

ANNOUNCEMENT: From December 2021, Training-by-Eos will no longer operate as an ICAEW Case Study tuition provider.

Neil, Sarah and the rest of the Training-by-Eos team would like to thank every one of their alumni, markers, exam writers and tuition partners who made running Training-by-Eos such an enjoyable experience for so long.

We recommend that students wishing to prepare for the Case Study exam in 2022 and beyond contact First Intuition. The Training-by-Eos team have worked closely with First Intuition for many years and have been consistently impressed by their knowledge and dedication to student success.

We would like to thank every ICAEW Case Study student who has attended a Training-by-Eos tuition programme, signed up to our blog or purchased our exam material. Our 100% satisfaction rating remains the statistic we are proudest of, and it was a pleasure to play a small role at the start of your career as a Charted Accountant.

ICAEW DGS AI Analysis – What you need to know

You have now had a week to get to grips with the ICAEW DGS Advance Information. Creating your own AI Notes is essential to be ready for the Case Study exam; you must know the Dog Gourmet Supplies business as if it were your own.

There is no shortcut when it comes to analysing the AI, but guidance from a Case Study expert is invaluable. DGS is much more operational than many of the previous Case Study exams and they are facing a number of challenges that you need to clear on. In this week's blog, Neil directs the overall output of your AI preparation and your financial statement analysis. There is even a handy video guide to talk you through it in under 6 minutes.

ICAEW Case Study Mock Exams

It has been a busy week with our tuition and exam writing team pawing over (sorry couldn’t help ourselves) the Dog Gourmet Supplies Advance Information and we are sure you have been doing the same.

But is having a robust set of AI Notes enough?

This is an essential starting point and will give you a solid background in the Case Study business. But the real understanding comes from applying your knowledge, and this is best accomplished through ICAEW Case Study Mock Exams.

But what should you be looking for in your Mock Exam practise?

Take a look at our blog for our top tips.

ICAEW Case Study Exam FREE Course: Mastering scepticism

The ICAEW Case Study exam is unlike any of the exams you have sat to date. Up to now, you have been demonstrating your technical knowledge and understanding of accounting principles. The Case Study requires you to apply that knowledge and provide advice on complex business issues as a written report.

But here’s the thing…

Writing a full report, that hits all the key points, provides sound business advice and is structured as the exam requires – in just 4 hours – is tough.

In our experience of working with the Case Study since 1999, and evidenced by the July 2021 Examiners' Report, there are 3 key areas that Case Study students often struggle with:

Assumptions
Professional Scepticism
Commercial Discussion

This is why we have created a FREE course for all ICAEW Case Study students on Mastering Scepticism and Discussion in the ICAEW Case Study Exam.

In this free course, using videos and material produced for our Complete Case Study Preparation Course, Neil uses extracts from a Mock Exam based on the November 2021 Advance Information to demonstrate exactly what the examiners expect from you.

Sign up now and build your confidence in demonstrating professional scepticism and discussion.

This time next week the Advance Information would have been released and you will be getting to grips with the Case Study business.

How is your study plan looking? Have you remembered to schedule in some breaks too - no work, no study, just some time to relax and unwind?

Take a look at this week's blog to understand the importance of rest and recovery as part of your exam preparation.

Getting up to speed for your ICAEW Case Study exam.

Writing the full report in 4 hours, and including enough of the points that the examiner is looking for is a tough challenge.

For this, you need to start practising writing succinctly and completing your work on each element to time.

Boosting your ICAEW Case Study exam confidence

Stamina, endurance, call it what you like; the important thing is to acknowledge that you need to build it up. The ICAEW Case Study exam is 4 hours long!

Four hours of reading, business analysis, evaluating the numbers and then writing a report under severe exam stress. That is a long time to focus in one sitting without a break and is not something we typically do in our working lives.

It takes practice.

Take a look at our top tips for helping build your stamina ready for November.

Marking your ICAEW Case Study Mock Exam 06/07/2021

Chasing the “right” answer

When we mark Mock Exams and give feedback, there is one question we are always asked…

“So what is the right answer?”

So far, your road to ACA has been paved with exams marked out of 100, where there was a right answer and you were awarded your marks accordingly.

But here’s the thing.

The ICAEW Case Study exam is about application of knowledge. The exam exhibits will provide new information and you must use a combination of AI and exam information to assess the impact on House Pride and the longevity of the business.

In this situation, the “right” answer is akin to a unicorn; it simply doesn’t exist.
