  1. And do you have to write an exam that you previously passed again?
  2. What exactly was their 6th attempt? Did they get withdrawn for a year (after failing 4 times), write the exam (5th attempt), fail, then write again and pass?
  3. Answering the calculation questions at the end is a great strategy but I'm not sure how much of each question being weighed equally is true.... I recall from my last experience that Estates Planning had about 10 questions fewer on the exam than Real Estate, yet when I received my breakdown, Estates Planning comprised more of the exam than Real Estate.
  4. Through an index and the table of contents. I started by doing them un-timed, then followed a timer sheet and did them under exam conditions. Just at a loss for words.
  5. No, I learned from previous sittings to prioritize practice exams and spend over a month and a half doing practice exams from various sources. Can anyone shed light on whether it is worth going through Ontario after failing for a fourth time? I was a few percentage shy from the provincial average in March and just don't understand what went so horribly wrong this time around.
  6. I had taken the LSUC tutoring, along with private tutoring and purchased practice exams from 5 different vendors. Just didn’t work out. The structure of the exam is not meant for me.
  7. Oh. Ok. Someone else on this blog said they requested them to honour one of their exams and they did..
  8. Did they retain credit for passing an exam? Or had to do them both over again?
  9. Hi, I failed the Solicitor exam for the 4th time in Ontario but passed the Barrister and have finished articling. Any advice on where to go from here?
  10. I'm guessing the week of December 11. Last year they were released on Monday, December 12 in the afternoon.
  11. I hope so too. Fingers crossed. It's been a week since the exam and as I much as I try to remember the questions, most of it is such a blur. There were definitely lengthy questions and several obscure questions in Estates from what I remember, and Real Estate had more concise PR/Ethics questions. I found myself looking at the choices and knowing immediately if it was an PR/Ethics question and would answer them right away. Sometimes in random order. I recall flipping to the end of the booklet on each half to see how many questions were on each half and if I saw a PR/Ethics question I would answer them instead of following a numerical order. I lost a few minutes in the second half having to use the bathroom, but still had about 10 minutes to review at the end and make a educated guesses. I finished the first half just as time went off because of how complicated Estates was.
  12. That's exactly it. I'm not sure why, but a lot of the subject matter that was scattered across various chapters in Business Law was barely on the exam. So I found myself indexing things I just didn't expect to be looking up and eating up time. I felt the Business section had tons of PR/Ethics questions with Estates surprisingly barely having any. I believe I had maybe under 10 minutes at the end of the second half to review my exam. The practice exams were definitely not indicative on what the real deal was.
  13. I feel the same way. Totally mixed bag. Business wasn't as hard as I expected, but surprisingly some of the major topics weren't on the exam at all, and chapters I didn't pay much attention to were scattered in that section. Calculation questions were guessed. Estates was mixed, some calculation questions that I had to guess because I was running out of time and some minor topics that were tested quite a bit. Real Estate was a lot of general questions and I didn't find myself looking at the materials or indexes much. Overall I don't feel as bad as I did in March and hope that carries me home.
  14. I live in Brampton but don't mind commuting to downtown Toronto. If you guys are cool we should exchange information via DM and schedule study sessions. I only have to write the Solicitor exam and have started studying already.
