Are any of the materials for this exam free (like Exam 5's) that I can get started on before getting the Exam 5 results? Don't want to go through requesting TIA if I end up failing 5.

But honestly, I effn screwed up on 5, which i Probably prepared for in like 10 weeks and I know for certain I'm failing with a 5. So instead of just spending the next 6 months crying over spilled milk I want to study for 6,and sneak in revision for 5 around early February ish. However i plan to take a practice exam every weekend for Exam 5 just to still keep me on my toes.
Is this realistic, please advise?

Doable, not something I'd want to do myself but I know other people who have done something similar (with 6 and a FCAS exam )
