I have achieved an A in unit 1-2 for finance and A for unit 3, and predicted an A* in unit 4 if you need any help you can message me.

The best tips I have is:

1. go to every single lesson and treat it as a discussion about the topic rather than learning it
2. make notes on every single section of the unit, then use these notes to revise (only put key information dont litter it with words it will be boring to revise)
3. do the LIBF practice tests regularly
4. use quizlet right before the exam like I'm talking 30mins before you go in, to refresh your memory on the unit (there are tons of material on there)
5. go over the case study religiously, make notes on it all then link everything you can to sections in the unit (make sure you link it back!!!)
6. revise the stated topics for the non case study questions over and over and over
