    I'm yet to receive the materials but how many times did you go over the question bank?

    I want to aim for 80%+ passes in the knowledge papers so as to feel comfortable going into the later stages.

    Also, how many questions are there in certificate level question banks?

    Probably once proper and then went back over some chapters I found harder. It varies in terms of exams and hard to put a number on it.

    You'll hear this from someone else I'm sure, but you don't need 80% to be fine on the later stages, it really doesn't make a difference - just aim for slightly above 55%, no point overdoing it on the first few exams as you won't get any extra recognition or credit.

    Roughly how many questions are there in the knowledge stage QB?

    I heard big4 only have around 5 days after the course to revise for exams?

    Said in original comment - it varies in terms of exams and hard to put a number on it.

    And with other bit, yeah it varies from firm to firm, 5 days doesn't seem right though - maybe for law and b/f which are easier.

    If you've already started at a big 4 they should have told you by now
