The exam entry for the May 2017 exams closes on 1 April 2017, so make sure you enter as soon as possible.
Students who follow through and enter the exams have a higher possibility of success; if you don't sit the exams and keep moving forward at every opportunity, then it will be harder to pick your studies up at a later date and continue on.
We appreciate that things can get busy, and that things happen in life where it is absolutely necessary to take time out from the study and exam process, and we're not talking about those times, but the times when you get off track and you're basically just procrastinating.
The best way to avoid this is to set yourself achievable goals. Make sure you know where you're at in the exam structure, and what exams you need to take next, then commit to registering for those exams straight away. This gives you something to focus your studies on and aim towards. Professional exams aren't easy and we're usually studying them at a time in our lives when there's a lot going on - work, family and so on - and there may be times when you're derailed, but the key thing is not to give up, it will be worth the investment.
