  5. Opsre Part 1 and Methods of Study

    Echo the above by Richy - was my third and final attempt at Part 1 - wouldn`t have sat it again had I failed. First two times I used online stuff etc and largely ignored books. This time stuck to the books and concentrated on the hot topics I got from the checkmate site. I also found the checkmate audio discs invaluable - just used those to/from work etc and even while doing the ironing LOL. Big tip is to learn the case law from Blackstones inside out.

  8. Tired of waiting

    6 weeks doesn`t seem a long time but it`s starting to get to me now- I`ve also been offered a new role and seen jobs advertised but all dependant on how I do in the exam..oh well maybe this time next week. I felt ok after the exam , as time has gone on I`m convinced I`ve now failed!! fingers crossed for ev1.
  9. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    And star747- the exam has no bearing on real life or the situations you would deal with as a sgt - you just need to have your head in exam mode and completely forget real life.I was once told on my CID course many years ago - ABC - A- Accept nothing , B- Believe nobody , C- Challenge everything. Works in real life policing - not in the exam world. You accept what you read , learn it and move on- the fact that you would deal with disciplinary matters as a sgt is irrelevant- so too is the fact that you would rarely detect some of the terrorism offences ie a person failing to inform a police officer if they have information etc- if they dont tell us how do we know they haven`t told us , so how do we know an offence has been committed? ?
  10. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    i used the q&a books of blackstones as opposed to discs- i found the exam qs were v similar to the actual exam qs. bt u always come out thinking u done rubbish or feeling confident- only time will tell as lets face it who can really remember what the questions were never mind the answers u gave LOL ?I`ve done the debrief whwn I got home - then started doubting myself when I actually thought about it. Hey ho- what will be etc- that was my third and last try- i put the effort in and if I dont pass its obvious I never will as I`ve worked my ass off this time. Hope everyone gets the result they deserve. For now forget about it, chill out and enjoy the free time !
  11. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    eeeeeeeeekkkk i was thinking the first 10 were the ones I deffo knew! On the face of it - in comparison to the 2 previous exams I`ve done thought it was a fair exam with fairly straightforward questions and very few ambigious ones. We will see in 6 weeks time - LOL For now few well deserved wines and all books packed away !
  12. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    Good luck everyone- if we dont know it now we aren`t going to tomorrow! I agree- 55% seems dead easy but it`s not! - i`ve done it twice before , once before the set pass mark came in when it went on average result and they chose a top percentage and once in 2008 when i got 52.7%(grrrr) - really didn`t pt the effort in though when i realise how much I`ve studied this time and how much more I have taken in. I guess sitting on the comp for hours with a q&a disc loaded and the internet in the background doesn`t count as studying LOL !! So this time I abandoned the discs , have used blackstones, tom barron crammmers, blackstones books q&a and a tom barron audio crammer(phew) no wonder I`m seeing gibberish.My reasoning being - if I don`t pass it this time with all this study it`s not for me and I`ve decided this is my last time:). GOOD LUCK EVERYONE - roll on tomorrow to get it finished!
  13. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    I`m getting in a panic now LOL- confusing myself-I`ve studied since November and its driven me nuts I think- got the audio crammer on my mp3 permanaently and Blackstones are like my bible! ROLL ON TUESDAY I need a good few drinks .....good luck to you
  14. Ospre Part 1 - how's the revision going?

    I am so glad I`m not the only one seeing gibberish when I thought my study had gone ok - gl with it 2 days to go!
