BBKA Module Exam Techniques
The British, Welsh, and Scottish Beekeepers Associations use a common framework of beekeeping theory examinations known as The Modules. Outside of the active beekeeping season, studying for these examinations can be interesting and satisfying, encouraging you to read and discuss beyond the breadth and depth of your previous beekeeping experience. However, many beekeepers find the examinations themselves daunting - indeed many many not have sat formal examinations for several decades!
Dan Basterfield has progressed through the complete BBKA Module system, earning a Distinction at each examination, and achieved both the BBKA Master Beekeeper and National Diploma in Beekeeping qualifications in the same year. As a teacher and lecturer, one of his popular discussion themes is how to approach the examinations undaunted. Here Dan outlines useful resources and approaches when studying towards these examinations, and then works through the exam format discussing in detail how to approach each aspect in a calm, structured, and confident manner in order to give best account of your studies.
Covers both the traditional paper-based exams and new online exam system (based upon the 2021 preview).
