Seeing as I just wrote the UFE last week I figured I would provide you with a summary of my experience preparing for and writing the UFE. Following UFE Mock week (that I mentioned in my previous UFE post), I spent the month of August (5 weeks total) writing, marking, and debriefing cases with my study partner. We would study from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, and always made sure to take weekends off to relax and de-stress. Throughout the UFE process it was reiterated to me how important it truly is to take breaks and relax throughout the preparation process. It is incredibly easy to accumulate stress and get overwhelmed while studying, and this can significantly impact your confidence levels going into the exam, which are extremely important. In order to succeed on the UFE, I have been told you must be confident in yourself and your ability to execute. For that reason, as I mentioned, I made sure to take breaks as I needed and always take weekends off to get my mind off the exam.
