In response to a recent enquiry from a candidate, it is important to highlight the absolute necessity to ensure that you take into account the qualifying criteria when preparing for the regulatory exams.
Firstly, we want to emphasise that studying the Preparation Guide is in fact the very first step a candidate should take to ensure that he or she understands what they have to know, and where to find the required information. This is the best approach to follow when planning and preparing for the Regulatory Examination. It is highly effective and does result in a better outcome.
The qualifying criteria provide the basis of knowledge and skills against which the regulatory examinations are set. Only questions based on these criteria will be included in the exams.
This graph is an indication of where most of the questions are likely to come from. Tasks 2, 4 and 8 make up 75% of the tasks, and should naturally form the most important part of your preparation.
On receipt of the exam results from Moonstone, candidates who failed will receive a Task Analysis that highlights the Tasks that needs more focus in their preparation for the next exam. Often, candidates are so disappointed that they do not read beyond the result.
