About now candidates for the 2017 Session 1 RICS APC are in three categories.
1/ I cant do this !!! I am not ready.
2/ I am ready and confident.
3/ I will get there but I need to do some more, plan is in place.
Whichever one you are, there is always a chance that you will need reassurance.
Let’s get “Referral” out of the way. It is not a failure and never beat yourself over it. It is retriable with some guidance.
Jon Lever FRICS and DeLever Ltd have been helping candidates pass for over 15 years at a pass rate of over 85% of those taking our coaching and training.
I asked Jon, “what questions are asked at the Final Assessment?” He is always asked, by candidates, for a list?
‘There is NO SUCH list, of any use, as an assessor questions are focussed on your submission documents! (Look at APC ISPY)From our experience, candidates can be asked anything from around 80 to 100 questions in the interview hour!
The assessors are expected to provide candidates with clear, concise questions relating to their competency knowledge and experience.
You will be asked to explain your understanding, experience, advice and actions and give opinions and explain how you would undertake your business professionally.
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.
The Rules of Conduct and Ethics are one of the key areas of APC knowledge and experience that, if you get wrong at the final assessment, you will be referred. Check that you have the latest version and discuss the Rules of Conduct and Ethics with your supervisor and counsellor.
Still, unclear let’s give you some help?
How would you like to get a step ahead in your preparation for your assessment interview?
We are delighted to introduce our APC i-Spy service where our Expert APC Coaches (all active assessors) will review your Final Assessment Submission documents and write you a list of questions they would identify, from their assessing experience, and based upon your actual, real, unique APC submission documentation.

What’s next, a MOCK Interview.
This will be harder or as severe as the real APC Final Assesment.
Mocks are a 60 minute APC mock interview with real and current APC assessors, followed immediately by a 15-minute feedback critique.
They are selling out quickly, London, Harrogate or East Midlands.
Don’t wait as you’ll not get the location you want.
