CIOT law e-assessment - timescale

CIOT law e-assessment - timescale

Didn't find your answer?

I need to do the Law E-Assessment, what is a reasonable number of study hours needed to pass it? I intend to get the book Monday and would like it done before Christmas, reasonable goal?

Piece of string

It depends on the student. Each student learns at different rates and will have different experiences and skill sets that will help them with specific exams. Family / home commitments is another factor to consider.

Yes but..
I agree with Mrme, but having sat that exam I think it is a reasonable goal.

Entry qualification

As much as anything else it depends on your CTA entry qualification, i.e. when you last sat a law module.

I think the CIOT recommend about 20 hours study for each e-assessment.

Don't underestimate the e-assessments

 

Tolley's suggest it takes approx 50-60 hrs for each e-assessment.  With law I took longer - I found it a really dry subject. 

Also found the law manual not enough - bought the BPP CD question bank and revision cards - found these really helpful.

You also need to factor into your timetable availability of time slots at the test centres.  

A short period of intense study appears to work best for these e-assessments.

I can't see any significant link between number of hours and whether you pass.

I remember it being surprisingly hard.  It was multiple choice in my day (~6 years ago)...which sounds easy.  Problem was I'd read answer (a) and think it sounded correct, but figured I'd read the others to provide some comfort...they'd all sound correct, and there'd only be a trivial wording difference.  Not so easy!

On the plus side, if you fail it, you could resit it pretty much straight away, not like the 6 monthly "proper" exams.

Agreed, but
It gives an idea of the average study time to set aside.

Personally, I passed the law one with less than 20 hours study and failed the ethics one with more than 20 hours.
