Hi Kreely,

Its next to impossible to find a non-trainee who has cleared this exam in my immediate vicinity......just looking out for any fortunate ones who might be able to give me some useful advice re: exam preparation etc.

p.s-i think being a trianee gives a distinct advantage.

I do not think there may be any deifference beween trainees and non trainees regarding passing written paper , may be difficult for non-rainees to pass CASC because less opportunity of supervision and practice with other people who are preparing for CASC.

I am staff grade , I passed paper 1&2 in first attemp

and paper-3 in second attemp because paper was very lengthy at least for me, I could not finish the paper.

That can come from anyone whether trainee or not.

I see your point.................but i dont think trainees have any advantage in the written papers. Its a level playing field.

I AM A STAFF GRADE and I have passed the casc and paper3. paper3 in first attempt and casc in second attempt. In my trust a few trainees who took paper 3 with me are still struggling with paper3.

Any literature will be those published by their notorious examiners.
