Yes, but it would be a discreditable act to tell you what is on the test. I think that is actually a potential question.


In that case, yes, I would study all of those things.


Scored 66% in my final mock exam, my test is Monday. Also I am scoring in 70/80s in the practice tests but am still scared for these tests as you never know. But is this relatively good score to get through?

Took AUD back in June and was hit HARD with A3, A4 and A5. Passed with a 75 though!
