Our May-August courses for the 2022 PEB examinations

Ian Uncategorized

We gave agreed with tutors the dates for our revision courses for the Foundation Certificate (FC) and Final Diploma (FD) papers for the 2022 PEB Exams. A Leaflet PEB 2022 and PEB courses calendar is available.

The FC courses include three in-person (FC1, FC3 and FC4) and two Zoom-based (FC2 and FC5) courses and will be held between 28 June and 16 July. See the FC 2022 courses newsletter

The FD courses include 4 Zoom-based and three in person courses for FD1, three in-person courses for FD2, one Zoom-based and two in-person courses for FD3 and six in-person courses for FD4, plus two in-person FD4 resitter courses. See the FD 2022 courses newsletter

An exciting new element of this year’s courses are the two ‘split’ FD4 courses. In previous years, we have held a 1-day Introduction to FD4 course in late May, for those new to FD4 and seeking initial guidance and practice on FD4. This was then followed by recommended attendance at a later 1.8-day main FD4 course. However, in practice, the 1.8 day courses were attended by some who had been on the Introduction course and some who had not . So not all 1.8 day course attendees were at the same level of preparation. In consultation with the tutors, we have decided to overcome this by holding two integrated 2.5-day courses involving two parts:

– Part 1 in mid-May: a 1-day introduction to FD4 and initial practice session, after which attendees will be asked to attempt a specified past paper, for tutor review.
– Part 2 in late-July: feedback on the paper attempted in June; guidance on and practice of how to analyse an FD4 paper, how to write the answer, what gets marks and what will not, how to get a good inventive step answer down on paper, the advice section etc. This will be followed by practice of another past paper (for tutor review).
– Part 3 in September: the group will meet for a 2-hour Zoom session to discuss the answers to the paper attempted to cover any further points and queries on FD4.
