Narrative the key to FM

Mar 5
When diving into the depths of Financial Management (FM), it's easy to get lost in a sea of complex calculations and numerical theories.

Sure, these are the big fish, but don't let them scare you away from the smaller, yet equally tasty, narrative marks.

Since 2014, these have accounted for a juicy average of 30% of the marks in a typical FM paper!
The beauty of narrative questions in FM? Predictability. These questions are like your favourite TV show reruns; you know what's coming, and you love it. The topics may vary, but the question style? As consistent as the taste of your grannie's secret recipe.

Dive into the first chapters of our FM Rapid Revision Question Bank, and you'll find a goldmine of commonly tested narrative topics (assuming that diving into a goldmine doesn't kill you). This isn't just a stroll down memory lane; it's a strategic move to bag most of the narrative marks without breaking a sweat.

Worried about the rest of the exam? A solid grasp of narrative questions means you only need a modest haul from the numerical questions to pass. It's like needing just a few more pieces to complete your jigsaw puzzle.

Don't forget, though, to give a nod to the NPV and hedging calcs in your revision time. They might seem daunting, but with a bit of elbow grease, you can crack these too. It's about playing to your strengths and knowing where to focus your energy.

In the grand scheme of FM, narrative isn't just filler; it's a key player. So, polish up your storytelling skills, and you might just find yourself the hero of your own FM exam saga.
