Important Tips:

1. Limited resources for each suggested subject, as the student only has to write 150-200 words per answer in the main course. Reading too many sources will lead to the accumulation of too much information, which will make it difficult to formulate an answer in no more than 200 words. Moreover, the facts remain the same regardless of the number of books read.

2. It is recommended to prepare personal notes for each subject because it will be easy to revise them. News related to the subject can be updated in the notes themselves. In addition, the student will develop a better understanding of the subject when writing their own notes. However, notes should be concise – to the point.

3. Preparation and practice must go hand in hand. After completing each topic and subject, students are invited to practice MCQs and descriptive questions. This will help them to better assess their preparation and also to understand gaps in their preparation.

4. Holistic approach – covering all topics and topics within each topic is essential. The candidate must ensure that he is prepared for each area mentioned in the program, especially for the sector.
