Free last-minute exam tips

A journalism trainer is offering last-minute help and advice to National Certificate entrants – for free.

Trainees sitting their NCE on April 11 can get support through Cleland Thom, who will be running a special page on his website.

He will offer trainees tips on how to do well on the day during the week before the exam.

Exam candidates can log on to get up-to-date advice – and can also e-mail if they have any last-minute questions.

Cleland said: “This is a unique service that provides trainees with tips that could make all the difference between a pass and a fail.

“With NCE pass rates usually around 50 per cent or below, trainees need all the help they can get.”

The tips will be available from Monday April 7 at Just click on the NCE Last Minute Tips option.
