Advanced Level Papers

Corporate Reporting

SUMMARY OF PAPER

Very technical - revise FAR!

OUR OFFERING

Exam Room Notes, On-demand, Mocks, Technique Improvement

A tricky and technical paper of 2 halves.

Relatively predictable pro-forma narrative and numbers for the Financial Reporting element (drawing very heavily from FAR).

More of a skills-based approach to the Audit element: potentially harder to prepare for, particularly if you don't work in Audit on a day-to-day basis (but then again, at least you don't work in Audit on a day-to-day basis).

For Corporate Reporting, we offer interactive on-demand video courses, pre-exam study materials, exam room resources and live sessions.

Strategic Business Management

SUMMARY OF PAPER

Technique rather than technical

OUR OFFERING

Exam Room Notes, On-demand, Mocks, Technique Improvement

Less about pure technical knowledge and more a matter of effective exam technique.

In our opinion, quite a fun paper (before exam day, anyway ...) as it is all about value-added business advice but success in Strategic Business Management will depend on your ability to "think on your feet", addressing practical business advisory issues that cannot necessarily be prepared for before exam day.

But that is not to say that you should neglect your technical revision (and especially of FM) ... just that you cannot rely on re-using a numerical or narrative pro-forma to get you through. Quite different to Corporate Reporting.

For Strategic Business Management, we offer interactive on-demand video courses, pre-exam study materials, exam room resources and live sessions.

Case Study

SUMMARY OF PAPER

Zero technical content - all about technique

OUR OFFERING

Tuition courses, on-demand, Mocks, Exam Room Pack, Technique Improvement ... lots, basically!

The weirdo of the Advanced Level: bizarre marking approach and no technical content required. Literally, none.

There is no point preparing for Case Study by falling in love with the Question Bank (something that can work for CR and SBM ... don't tell your partner!).

With no discretion at all for the marker, you are not really writing a report. Think about success in Case Study as more a matter of "learning your lines" by sticking to what the examiners want you to do.

For Case Study, we offer live online courses, a Mock Exam Pack based on the latest live set of Advance Information, our Exam Room Pack summary of the ICAEW Advance Information, our Cracking Case student-focused book and various interactive on-demand video courses.

Quite a mixed bag of offerings, but that's the best way to tame an unusual beast.
