6 Reasons to study with us

Do It Differently

As experienced tutors, we see no point in simply "reinventing the wheel" by doing the same old thing with a different logo. Our materials and courses are therefore self-consciously designed to take a more practical, no-nonsense approach which is always 100% clear about what you really need to do to pass.

Pass Rates

Our pass rates regularly exceed the ICAEW global average for all subjects that we teach.

For example, our Case Study pass rate has exceeded 95% at all sittings since 2013 and our Big 4 pass rate for Case Study over the same period is 99.9%!

We have achieved a 100% pass rate for our BPT and FM Masterclass on-demand courses so far in 2021!

Feedback

Please take a few moments to view the genuine feedback comments provided throughout this website, including on our Testimonials Wall: we have uploaded literally hundreds of positive comments which hopefully speak for themselves, proving that our practical approach and innovative materials are a winning combination.

We Listen

We’re constantly engaging with students to understand what you need from a tuition provider. Many of the products and services on this website have been developed as a result of student suggestions. And we are always looking to improve and make changes ... otherwise, accountancy tutoring might get a bit boring (yes, really!).

We Care

We really do believe our strength in numbers starts with you. Which is why we always put in the graft and hours to provide the personal support you need to smash your exams. Because by working closely together, we’ll succeed together. We regularly work with students who have failed several times with other providers  but who pass first time with us, reflecting the impact of our innovative materials and the greater level of personal attention we provide.

Sense Of Fun

It really isn't difficult to inject a bit of fun and humour into the world of accountancy training (kind of a low baseline ...). But even so, we will happily take on this easy task because we know that an engaged and relaxed student is a successful student.

Studying for an accountancy qualification shouldn’t be painful. Or dull. Or painfully dull. So our courses and materials inject a real sense of fun whenever possible, whilst always taking the content and your success seriously.

What our
students say

A few kind words from the more than 20,000 satisfied students we have worked with over the years.

Your tutor was the best tutor that I have encountered in my ACA studies. He presented the information in a very clear, concise and calm manner and focused on what students forget to include in their answers - a very good mix between individual comments for myself and general comments for the group was very helpful. He is by far the best tutor when compared to my bland experience at a previous tuition provider and I went from 43 at my first attempt to a mark of 77.

Case Study course student

Hi peeps, Genuinely can't believe this but I somehow got 59% and only ruddy well passed Case!!! 100% couldn't have done it without you, especially with all those fatal technical issues in the exam, but somehow against the odds I HAVE PASSED!!! Thanks a million! I'm happy for you to market any and all of my story for marketing purposes because holy crap you guys deserve it! Still crying!

Nick C

Case Study course student

I have long been using your books throughout my ACA studies, and have found them to be invaluable in helping me pass the exams up to now. Many thanks for producing such great quality revision books.

I can only imagine how exhausted you must be after this process and the hours that would have gone into the material, which is many country miles, even worlds apart, from that of any other tuition provider I have ever seen. Thank you also for your words of encouragement. I'm really grateful for all your support.

Matthias S

Case Study course student

I used your Cracking Case book for the most recent Case Study exam and followed your format, instead of that of a "leading tuition provider" as you call them. I obtained the highest mark at my firm (82%). Thank you, I have already recommended you to all my colleagues who will be taking the exam in November.

The FM Q&A is great. I found that it has really helped me cement the basics and the explanations and tips are clear and easy to understand ... which can't always be said of the ICAEW Study Manual!

Lorraine S

purchaser of FM Q&A

Your tutor went beyond the extra mile for the Case Study tuition course. From the outset it was clear that he had invested an incredible amount of time into preparing the tuition course and this showed because his understanding of the examination and its markscheme was unrivalled. His expert knowledge of the markscheme helped him instil confidence in myself and the other students: we just knew that if he followed his advice, we would pass. I am grateful for his expertise and support.

David W

Case Study course student

I just want to say a massive thank you!! I failed Case Study last December only scoring 34, even though I took a full course at a top provider, it was only when studying your course that I realised how little they focused on technique and the smaller details to help get the pass. I bought the Cracking Case book, Cracking Case on-demand course, TIS on two papers and the Exam Room Pack... absolutely fabulous. I wish I had come to you guys sooner for some of my earlier papers to avoid all the frustration and fails.

Steph A

Case Study on-demand student

OH YOU HEROES. THANKS SO MUCH FOR GETTING ME THROUGH ALL THIS SH*T.

Sam H

Case Study course student

Just want to say a huge thank you for responding so quickly when you are so busy! I have had such an amazingly positive experience using your company and just want to say that you customer service continues to be so great and I really feel cared about as a student, which I was lacking with my previous provider.
