Semester 1 2022 Events

POF Revision Lecture

On Sunday 29th of May, FSA held their revision lecture for the first-year Finance subject Principles of Finance (PoF). This event involved a summary of the subject’s content from FSA committee member and H1 scorer Dylan Lennon, who also gave insight into how to approach exam-style questions and answered topic-specific questions from attendees. This was a great opportunity for our members undertaking PoF to receive a student’s insight into the subject and learn tips/tricks on how to really ace the exam and achieve the H1 that we are all aiming for. In addition, a worksheet with exam-style questions was also provided to attendees to both hone and revise their skills in various aspects of PoF and exam technique in general.

CFDM Revision Lecture

On Saturday 28th May, FSA held their revision lecture for Corporate Financial Decision Making (CFDM). In this event a H1 scoring member of FSA summarised the entire course as well as focused on specific areas that were asked by the attendees and fellow peers. This was the first revision lecture out of many that FSA performed through a more question-answer based approach, which seemed to be a huge success factor given that 77 people turned up. With aspects like the usual: Multiple choice, True/ False, Calculation-based questions, FSA and mainly the passionate peer lecturer didn’t fall short this semester as all attendees were also provided with an Excel Template to aid in calculator-based questions in the exam. In addition, a Practice test worksheet conclusive of all kinds of questions the exam format comprises was also handed to members and participants of this event!
