ACCA students, we know how to help you pass first time

Key takeaways

  • We stand and fall by our ability to get you to pass first time.
  • We're so confident that you will pass first time that you can come back for free if you don't.
  • Our secret lies in our student support, study guides and question practice.
  • By following a few simple guidelines, you can make our promise work for you.

With over 10 years' experience in preparing students for their exams we have learnt a lot about study techniques. We've seen what works and what doesn't. Using our expertise we have developed a formula - a so called secret sauce if you will - that gives you the best chance of a first time pass. If followed correctly we really believe you will pass first time. In fact, we're so confident  in this belief that you can come back for free if you don't pass. This is our Pass Assured Promise (PAP) and it's available to all our students. 

We are so obsessed with passing that our pass rate is the key measure of our business. Our CEO, Nikki Maritz, illustrates this when saying,"Our pass rate is the number we are all chasing. It's even more important than our revenue figure. We believe that you buy a pass from us, not a product."

So ,with that said, what's in the secret sauce?

The secret lies in the fact that no other college offers more question practice and student support than IBTC.

Question Practice
We strongly believe in the power of question practice and we find any excuse to talk about it. According to a study published in The Guardian, "Researchers found that students who did a practice test after a period of revision did better on the final exam than those students who spent their time only on revision." The beauty of question practice is that it reinforces what you've learnt while helping you to identify your weak spots. It shows you where you need to focus.

Taking this a step further at IBTC we believe that the number of times you test yourself and the variety in your question practice is the real key to exam success. For best results you need various levels of question practice during your study process and the more you do, the better your chances of passing first time. We encourage our students to spend 60% of their time studying and the remaining 40% practicing.

Study Plan
The IBTC Study Plan lays it all out for you. It indicates when to go through your theory and when to do question practice. It is designed to get you exam ready as quickly as possible. Your Study Plan will provide you with what to study and for  how long so you don't waste your time studying the wrong thing. Think of it as the road  map for your ACCA journey.
