Hi guys
I am from Australia and am doing my CIBTAC exam this coming weekend (7 days away) and was wondering if there were any question/answer papers available anywhere - I am not able to find any. Any help would be appreciated. It would appear that some of your answers are a little different to ours over here. Thanking you
