I studied for 3 months full time and scored a 86.
I advice you to prepare really well and only when you are satisfied with your studies, appear for the exam. esp with the no retake rule.
good luck!

I ha a full time & a part time job when I took the exam. I studied for 3 months & got 82. now many people tolme thru sdn & phione calls to quit the job & study full time which is practically impossible for me coz I have 2 small kids who just started going to school. so me & my wife have to meet their expenses & then the home expenses. so i cant be a full time student until next year coz then they will be in kg & i can sent to the town school. so the point is with a part time job alone I think u will be able to score above 85.
