**7 TOP tips** helping you to ‘Pass your RICS APC Final Assesment’

1 Become a member of RICS
Before you are eligible to start your APC, you can sign
up for free Student Membership of RICS and receive a
membership number which gives you instant access to
the RICS web site which contains a wealth of knowledge
and other membership services. When you start the APC
your status will change to ‘Trainee Surveyor’.
2 Understand the APC process
Get the RICS APC Guides from http://www.rics.org. Make
sure that you have read and fully understand them as
about a quarter of the candidates I have assessed have in
part been referred because they don’t properly understand
the APC process. You should be reading them at least
once every 3 to 4 months. Candidates from outside the UK
also, need to check the differences in the APC for their
world region, see the RICS web site for details.

3 Get a relevant job
You can only start your APC if you are employed in a
relevant surveying role, gaining the experience expected for
the pathway you intend to follow. It is also beneficial if your
employer is committed and willing to provide you with a
Structured Training Plan. RICS Training Advisors (RTA)
can assist and advise employers regarding any aspect of
the APC process. Find your RTA at http://www.rics.org.

7 TIPS to start Preparing for the Final Assesment… “Demystify the process!” “Remove the worry and frustration..”

Session 2 2017 is 6-8 weeks away…

It’s been tough and the emotional rollercoaster is about to step up a gear!
It’s a tough process and gruelling for some people with jobs that demanding time.
Keep your head as ‘Good news’, according to the Oyster Partnership recruitment company, Charter Surveyors are in high demand and they can not see a drop-off.

With weeks to go and not years or months, we must focus on the reason your here at this post. Session 2 2017!
I’m going to give you some advice from Jon Lever FRICS an Assessor of the actual assessors.

1/ Take the week off or ask for study leave.

Seriously this is a milestone in life.
Treat the final weeks as a job, work 7-8 hrs a day and 5 hrs at a weekend.
With a job, you expect a break. Pick something you like, good outside and get some air.
Practice in this time, Jon recommends you at least run through the presentation nearly 40 times. I know I was shocked.

2/ Don’t blag it, it’ll not cut.

They have seen and heard everything. There is no short cut.

What else can you do….

3/ APC Revision Pack what is it …

A fantastic resource for anyone nearing the end of their APC or need to better understand the APC Final Assessment process.
