Additional online testing.


Homework/Progress Testing

From your very first class you will have the opportunity to attempt a number of past exam questions chosen by your lecturer which will be corrected by one of our experienced team of ACCA markers.
This is a very effective way to monitor your own progress throughout the course and identify areas which require further study.

Mock Exam

At the end of each course, you will be given the opportunity to sit a mock exam. Your time management skills are critical to your exam success, so the mock exam is an essential part of each course.


Question Based Revision (QBR)

In one of these highly intensive sessions you’ll practice ACCA exam standard questions under timed conditions for a whole day and practise your exam technique... something you won't be able to do at home. A team of experienced markers are onsite who will immediately mark each of your answers and will provide specific feedback on individual areas of weakness, to allow you to take swift corrective action. Our students consistently rate the QBR day as a highly effective revision tool.
