The two page assassination of everything I've ever done in beekeeping was the last straw.
No list of points to work on
No encouragement to try again
Just two pages of why I'm such a lousy beekeeper............the subject must surely be unfit for purpose...
...........I heard over 50 per cent failed last year.
Does anyone have any past papers I could look at please of the general husbandry or any other papers.........
I'm interested in seeing the sorts of questions asked and I'm tempted to have a go next year.
I'm thinking of doing 2 more in Nov?Congratulations to those who passed and for those that didn't, commiserations. I thought the BBKA exams were difficult. A 50% pass rate is low.
Anyone fancy coaching me so that I can pass it next year? My beekeeping sins are many, but am keen to improve.
If you have taken all the modules, then i expect that you will know most of the answers to the questions put to you.Well done for passing Tim. Was it really that hard? I'm thinking of doing mine next year and although I've done the written modules, I'm really not looking forward to it. Any tips or ideas on how to approach it would be most gratefully received.
I know nothing about the exam and considering so many haven't got a good word to say about the BBKA a lot appear to take the exams.If they take the report constructively and address the issues then they may become better beekeepers and pass next time. Those that don't except the result invariably blame the examiners, take their bat home and never want to come out to play again.
