We’re delighted to see one of our audit trainees, Mariliis Timma, gain national headlines for her success in the ACA Business Planning Taxation exam.
Mariliis achieved an incredible 97% in what is regarded as one of the toughest exams on the course, and in particularly challenging circumstances caused by lockdown restrictions, which saw learning and assessments suddenly move online.
Speaking to Kaplan about her achievement, Mariliis explains how she kept motivated: “I created a timetable for myself. This mainly focused the study times around the weekends and in the mornings (this is when I’m most productive).
I set regular time aside to learn, and broke it down by module. I was pretty strict with myself, setting the aim of doing a mock exam every weekend and I made sure I had enough time for the exam.
I know time management and being organised is one of my strengths so I had to make the most of that to succeed in these circumstances. And with everything going on in the world, writing my targets down helped me stay focused!”
We wish Mariliis all the best in her continuing studies and final exams, which she is due to take later this year.
