Doing well at the SCS means getting to grips with the exam format and style. It's a computer based test, which requires you to analyse preseen information before the exam, adapt to new information in the exam, and put that together with your theoretical knowledge from E3, F3 and P3 to advise at a senior level within an organisation.

It's critical then that you understand more about how the SCS is examined and so in the next few sections we'll take a look at some basic facts about this exam of which you must be aware and combine that with our advice on what this means for you in terms of how you approach the exam and how to use that knowledge to help you to pass.
