NCA Exam Prep Materials - Exams Tips

Many of us come from educational backgrounds where open-book exams are strange. We are mostly used to the strict ‘No-piece-of-paper-allowed’ exam settings.

But the NCA exams are in a class of their own.

To the uninitiated, the exams may seem simple. After all, you can go in with any book or material you like.

However, for those who have sat the exams, you will testify that they are not as easy as they seem. The questions are rarely straightforward, but designed in such a way as to task your legal research, analytical and problem-solving skills. So,

  • Which materials do you really need to read to pass the exams?
  • How much reading is sufficient to pass the exams?
  • Which materials do you really need to take into the exam hall?
  • How do you arrange your materials on the exam table for ease of reference?
  • How do you answer NCA exam questions?
  • How do you relate the cases to the questions?
  • How do you incorporate the required articles and materials into your answers without being guilty of ‘copy-and-paste’?
  • How do you manage your time to be able to sufficiently answer all questions?
  • What are the dos and don’ts during the exams?

These and many more are questions that NCA students have asked over and over again.

Others have taken these issues for granted and have fallen thereby.
