AF4 Revision Course

  • Mon 18 Sep – Tue 19 Sep

When: Session 1 - Monday the 18th September 13:30 to 16:30 Session 2 - Tuesday the 19th September 13:30 to 16:30 Where: Online - Zoom Cost: £60.00 per person This AF4 Revision Course will take place over two afternoons and will provide revision tips for the AF4 module. In our experience, passing AF4 takes three ingredients: 1. Good exam technique – not missing out on marks you should get 2. Knowledge relevant to the case study at hand – at the right depth (and no more!) for a Level 6 exam 3. The ability to put the first two together on the day - for three hours, on every question – on a remotely invigilated computer! The two half-day sessions are designed to ensure you have all of these three ingredients and are therefore match-fit come the day of the exam on October 3rd. The gaps between sessions allow for consolidation and prep for the next session, a rest, plus you may have a business to run or other meetings. Session 1 on Monday the 18th of September 13:30 - 16:30 will focus on: • Providing an insight into the AF4 exam • Cash and calculators • Debt • Assessing returns Session 2 on Tuesday the 19th of September 13:30 - 16:30 will focus on: • Reviewing the work from session one • Products • Benchmarking • Suitability • Next steps to passing This revision session will be hosted by Steve Davies. Steve has a wealth of industry experience having worked in financial services since the late seventies. He served his apprenticeship as a broker consultant and in providing direct advice before moving into training. He has a passion for helping people and this comes across in everything he does.
