Tips 4 of 5 from Jon Lever FRICS for organising your time leading up to the final assessment plus FREE help.

4. Revise, revise revise
At the final assessment you will be asked to explain your understanding, experience, advice and actions and give opinions and generally explain how you’ll undertake your business stressed-student-revising-008professionally.  Make sure you have plenty of competency experience project examples to discuss with the assessors.  Remember anything you have included in your submission documents could be the basis for a question at the final assessment.

If you missed the last two tip please see below, see below.

  1. Prepare your presentation thoroughly
    Once your Case Study is finished you should focus on developing your 10 minute presentation. I have seen a number of candidates present something different from their Case Study at the final assessment; you will be referred if you do this. If you bring a flipchart or handouts they should look professional. Your notes should be detailed enough to be a useful prompt, but not a script that you read to the assessors. A vital part of your preparation is practise to polish your performance and get your timings right.
  2. Practice your presentation
    You will be required to deliver your ten minute Case Study presentation at the beginning of the Final Assessment Interview. You will be expected to deliver an excellent and professional presentation, with well-produced verbal communication, top quality visual aids (if you are using any) good eye contact, good body language, clarity of thought and structure, professional and polite delivery and ensuring you can demonstrate top quality skill and awareness of the needs of your audience.  So often candidates don’t do well here so here is your chance to excel and stand out from the crowd.

3. Prepare for the Final Assessment day

Sitting the final assessment is stressful, understanding what to expect will help.  It is a good idea to visit the assessment centre beforehand and test such things as journey time and parking. You cannot be late for the final assessment! Prepare a checklist so that when you get nervous on the day you don’t forget anything. Absolutely anything in your submission documents can be the basis of questioning during your interview, so make sure you put in the preparation time and regularly review your declared competencies and submission documents.

myAPCDiary – Saving APC candidates time

The diary section is for recording your day to day experience.  We suggest a sentence or two clearly detailing the type of work you are doing and any key observations you make.  Note, it is important to ONLY record one duration to one competency for every half or whole day entry.  In fact the myAPCDiary will monitor this, keep a watchful eye on you and inform and restrict you from doing anything you shouldn’t.  You will need to write up 12 or 24 (or more) months of diary in this fashion, providing a pretty complete audit trail of your activity and experience.

Why can’t I see all my competencies in the diary section?   In the diary section of the myAPCDiary you will only have access to the Technical Core and Optional competencies to record against as this mirrors exactly the guidance given by RICS.  You do not record time against the Mandatory competencies in the diary and logbook, but you do write up the Mandatory competency levels in the Summary of Experience.

The Summary of Experience section is for summarising the experience you have had and probably recorded in your diary over the preceding months and weeks. However, it is important to write it up in a correct format with full adherence to Levels 1, 2, and 3.
