TIP of the Week
Prepare prepare and prepare !
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 flip chart 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 to make sure that you practice to polish your performance and get your timings right.
Make sure you understand and know the RICS Rules of Conduct and Global Ethical Standards as they are one of the key areas of APC knowledge and experience that if you get wrong at the final assessment you will be referred. Make sure you have the latest version and discuss the Rules of Conduct and Ethics with your supervisor and counsellor at your 3 monthly meetings; you can probably record this as ‘formal learning’ in your CPD

SELLING OUT FAST
This is a major part of your APC preparation
As the APC is based on your competency experience it is hard to know whether you are on track if your diary and log book are not up to date. It is a good idea to write up your diary and log book weekly, including a detailed description regarding your experience. We suggest writing a sentence or two for each diary entry, sufficient to remind you about what you were doing. This will help you identify any competency experience where you are deficient.
Maintain regular communication with your employer so you can discuss ways to tailor your experience to fill the gaps. Your diary is an important document and may be requested by your APC assessment panel, so make sure you keep it up to date.
