Masters in Tax

Hi all,

Don't know if anyone has any advice or not. More just sounding my frustration.

I am sitting my final exam to obtain my masters in tax three weeks time, and am starting to fall apart a bit.

In the precursor exams over the last year or so, I have consistently performed at the highest of my class - consistently getting either 98% or 99% in the final exams.

However, this final exam requires me to write a highly researched letter of advice in advance of the exam (which keeping my focus and research en point is tough), and then in the exam I will have three hours to change my advice based on a change of scenario.

It is just tough as I have little support from the workplace, friends and family. I am not one to moan and make a noise about my condition, but I feel this may be a bridge to far for me.

Don't forget that you can afford to be a rightly proud of what you've achieved so far. I can only try to imagine the amount of work and study this has entailed.

Is it possible that your progress has so amazed family, friends and colleagues, that they haven't necessarily fully understood how much you've had to put in and the strain you're feeling. Its quite possible that those who know you may have read your exam scores as an indication that everything is ticking along nicely for you, and as such have little comprehension of the bigger picture?

Take care

Hey guys,

Not sure if anyone is particularly interested in the fallout of this, but results are in and... I passed (with merit)!! :banana: :banana: :banana:

It will probably be followed by my resignation but still, not a bad outcome!

Thanks guys.

I don't mean to sound like an idiot for saying this, but it was all the better after two of my colleagues taking it also failed - My boss then said that I "obviously chose the easier question". So, a bit of pride there.

I quit days after the results after promises that were made were not kept - so I am hoping to start my own practice in the new year!
