Having a Whatsapp group, discussing (even quoting) questions and answers is all fine but screenshots and 'cut&paste' is illegal. Just be aware of how data is shared. Good luck with the exams.

Hey everyone, I have be contemplating doing an IF rating but with the average success rate of this exam being so terrible I am a little unsure if it is something worth the time and effort to just end up being disappointed at this point in time. Is there anyone that has recently sat this exam that can provide any feedback on if things are any better? From what I understand the best means of study are Avex notes and pretty much the whole CPL syllabus?

Many of you would be aware that SACAA is implementing a new examination system called PEXO. Any heads up on how will this new examination system would affect or bring about any changes in the IR exams??

By all accounts it is just the system for exams that changes not the content. Should not make any difference.
The PPL exams moved across a month or two ago.

Hi there everyone

I passed this exam earlier in September on my first attempt. I studied for about 2 months straight and used a system of mock exams called Pilot Exams in addition to the standard Avex books. That system I found to be a lot more relevant to the questions in the IR exam than Questionbank which I used for the other 8 CPL exams.

From my experience, the AWOPS section was the biggest section in the exam. Make sure to familiarise yourself with the approach charts as they are all at least 2 or 3 marks per question in the exam. I also had a lot of RNAV questions in my exam as well as a fair number of basic Met questions.

From my experience, the IR exam is extremely difficult but not impossible. I did only manage 76% but to be honest I am not complaining [-o<
For those that are struggling, I can assure you guys that there is light at the end of the tunnel! Just keep on working hard and I can guarantee you that it can be done. Good luck to all those that are working towards that exam.

Hello all,

I've recently wrote the IR exam for the third time and I'm currently on the 2 months waiting period. On my last attempt i received 60% after 2 months of studying. I used Questionbank and pilot exams for all three attempts.

I've read on the forum that some people suggest exam 11 for this exam, I've been trying to get exam 11 but i can't seem to find it so may someone please point me in the right direction.

Also if anyone has any new knowledge with regards to passing this exam please share, and for those who are on a whatsapp group please add me 071 490 7241.

I appreciate it

All the latest questions and study material is available on Pilotexams. Their pass rate currently exceeds 70% plus.
I must admit, the air schools that offer a proper IR course do have a greater pass rate. Also, do not under-estimate the NZ and FAA study material. These are used for the "practical" questions.
