Approach to P2 Examinations

Articles on the Approach to Professional 2 Stage Examinations
These articles are in a series of five, written as a resource for lecturers and candidates for Professional 2 examinations.  The series has as its goal the improvement of examination pass rates at the Professional 2 stage.  Each of the articles in this series can be used individually but are most beneficial if used collectively.  Candidates and lecturers are advised to review all of the articles to obtain maximum benefit.  While there is some overlap between the articles every attempt has been made to minimise this overlap whilst striving to achieve a consistency of terminology and key requirements throughout.
