One of the characteristics of people today is they expect instant results. This has been labelled the ‘Prime’ mindset after Amazon Prime offers next-day delivery and instant gratification.

When preparing for our tax exams, many students get discouraged by the lack of progress. The first time you look at an exam question, you can barely work out what is happening. The second time you are able to see some of the examiner’s traps, but you might still make a few mistakes.

 It normally takes 3 attempts before you have mastered the exam question. This then gives you the confidence to do a similar question and you find that success creates confidence.

The important thing is not to expect instant results. You must be patient and trust the process. Enjoy the small things. Give yourself a reward once you have done exam questions worth 30 marks.

 Be disciplined and keep going .
