Oh okay!

Yup you definitely can! And if you enjoy economics it’ll be cake. Crammed it in 2 weeks and scored a 96. You got this🙌🏻

I did just that - it was my last test and I scored in the low 90s on the other 3 so I said I want my life back and will take a 75. I think I got an 86 or something. 2 weeks after REG.

I had Becker so I crammed. Test was also very new (this was 2006) so I thought studying was less effective anyway. I remember study material asking like what does MB stand for (megabyte) so I took a chance.

Yes, BEC is the one that you can cram for and pass

If you have most of the info fresh in your mind from school or from using in your day to day, you could cram in a long weekend and still pass

You could pass it in less than 1 week if you cram MCQs hard. It's by far the easiest exam.

Yes. That’s how I passed. Definitely crammed the week before but that honestly works best for me

Yes absolutely. I did it in 12 days.

Definitely, just grind

Yes. That's how I did it.

Hi my sharks 🦈🙂👋🏻
I received a Welcome Kit from KPMG India as my joining date is just a month away.

However, I won't be joining KPMG as I have far better offers. Hence this welcome kit has put me in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

So when I would be declining the joining via a mail /phone call, should I tell the HR that I want to return this welcome kit as I won't be joining?

Will they take it back? I feel it is morally and ethically wrong to keep this kit knowing I won't join.
