Set Your Pace

We've created three streams to help you pace yourself on Bootcamp. We call this "Set Your Pace". Below you can find details of our three paces - running, jogging and walking.

You'll see that we have given you suggested timescales for each pace.  These are your choice, just recommendations. You can take as long or short as you like as Bootcamp is completely flexible for how long you take to complete your exams.

Some people like a little bit of guidance or help.


This is our fast-track version. You can complete your exams within one month without crashing. We suggest you devote 30 hours per week and this pace is really only suitable for someone who is not working full-time anywhere else and is driven to work extremely hard for one month.

We've created a PDF schedule to help you pace yourself and you can download this by clicking here.


This is our medium-track version. You take two months to complete the exams devoting around 15 hours per week. Quite possible if you're working full time elsewhere but if you are juggling other commitments like family and partners, you might find it a struggle. Remember these are just suggestions; you can go as fast or slow as you wish.

You can download the schedule here.


Finally we have our walking pace. Four months and 8 hours per week. Ideal for someone working full-time with other commitments too. This is the favourite pace for most people on Bootcamp but remember you have up to 12 months so there's plenty of time.

You can download the schedule here.
