Post: Look out forum, I'm back to attempt mod1

It's been almost two years since I logged on here, but my motivation is high to finally tackle Module 1. Anyone else done the other modules & been delaying 1?

One of my colleagues who will be sitting the exam in the UK, but who has obtained almost all his experience abroad, has got me wondering about the exam marking process - specifically who marks the pap...
