CIPFA’s top student

PQ Amanda Atkins walked off with not one but two prizes at the recent CIPFA prizegiving ceremony. She was the top performing student in the Public Finance & Strategic Case Study and the Strategic Public Finance paper.

Amanda said her keys to success was studying past papers and staying clued up with current issues. Amanda stressed you must stick to timings, get eight hours sleep, and use the biggest computer display as possible for the exam and study. Finally, make sure you have a glass of water with at all times!
