Hi All,
I am appearing for V2 Manager’s exam shortly. I have been through lots postings on Managers Exam on this forum & it has helped me to prepare in better way. Thanks for all the comments & advice.
I have a question for you all; I wanted to know “How many pages to be written for each module in the exam”. The reason I am asking is, I have been through EXIN preparation guidelines and in that I can see most of the answers were in bold bullet points/listed points. If at all any explanation is required then it might exceed the pages…..
I have taken few mocks exams & I ended up in answering nearly 25 pages, with listed or bullet points method...where required.
And also, I happen to see in this forum that many had mentioned that they took more than 30 pages………
Pls let me know your taught on this & how the evaluation would be done....
Regards,
Joseph

The answer is IT depends

Since there are 5 questions per exam - with 1 2 or 3 sub sections, the # of pages can really vary

For me. I have the worst handwriting in the world (court case proving that.) I write rather large print - writing in sort of a caseless programmer writing style.

Since you have to write double space & single sided, you also have to write clearly and well planned

1 question answered on each page.

i put the question ID 1a, 2b etc on the first line

Then I start the answer on the 3rd line

if the question asks list and explain or describe 5 ....

I expect that each of the 5 would take up 3 to 4 double spaces - the first for the item, the next 2 to 3 lines for the descripition or explanation - explanation are 4 - 5

so on the first page for the question, I may have only 2 or 3 of the list /describe or list explain - so I would have at least 2 pages

The thing is you want to make sure when the examiner reads your work, he / she can read your works

Good luck on the exam

After the exam, your writing hand will only be good of holding a beer

Also, do not write small as the exam will be copied and copied to be given to the examiners/graders

I write big - caseless.

I would write about 6 or 7 words per line

Please be legible

Well, I had my Service Support Exam last weekend. It went on well. I think all the hard work put for preparation & getting some really gud tips on this forum helped me a lot. My hands became crap……..but its worth if I get gud results. Fingers Crossed

I will be appearing for SD next month 3rd or 4th week.

I wanted to know what would be the duration in getting results normally from EXIN.

Regards,
Joseph

Hopefully the tips helped in your study habits - which is the key for the exam

Now that you have taken 1/2 of the mgr's exam

What do you think of the way we 'help' the candidates ?

just curious

Exin exam results took about 5 weeks to come through. Certificate and Red badge about a fortnight later.

Good luck with the SD exam
