Career Choices and examinations at IHRIM
Studying for any examination is hard work. Not only do you have to continue to do your day job, and keep house and home going, but you also have to take yourself away and study. Focus and study like there is no tomorrow.
But there is a tomorrow and it is exam day! Eeek. And you go in and do it. And wait. And wait. And then your results. You pass or you fail. Fail and you feel there really is no tomorrow – but there is. There always is.
And if you pass, your tomorrow will be very different. For a start there will be no more studying. At least for a while.

Road to ACC…
I have enjoyed my experience since joining coding. It has been quite an adventure. I chose coding as my career because it seemed to fit in with my 2 favourite subjects Biology from learning Anatomy and mathematics in terms of how hospital finance is related to coding through HRG,s. My revision for the exam went mostly smoothly which I greatly owe to our trainer who was helpful every step of the way. It also involved doing a lot of practice from past papers which helped me organise my time.
