It is human nature to compare ourselves with others. People fall into an endless cycle of competition. In a class of professional students, some people get through their exams quickly while the vast majority take longer.
In the December 2021 Advanced Tax exam, the pass rate was just 37% which means that 63% failed.
Instead of focusing on others, it is better to look at yourself. We all have different skillsets and are better at certain things than others. One of my friends is a natural sportsman. It does not matter what the sport is -darts, tennis, or swimming he just naturally excels. However, he is useless at maths!
We are all unique and life has a way of balancing out the scales. There is an increasing need for people to seek external validation instead of trying to be the best version of themselves. Just have faith in your own potential and try and get better every day.
If you are planning on doing Advanced Tax in  March, I recommend you purchase Advanced Tax Condensed. This book makes learning tax easy and fun. Don’t worry about perfection Please ensure you are using the Kaplan study notes and exam kit.
