CIMA recommends you study with a tuition provider


CIMA strongly recommends that you study through a college. According to CIMA an analysis of their pass rates clearly show that students who join a college outperform those who don't.
In South Africa, there is a wide range of tuition providers to choose from, however, not all of them are equal. CIMA evaluates tuition providers against a set of rigorous criteria and will award Premium Partner status only to the very best tuition providers. This is what you need to consider when you are choosing your tuition provider.
One of the key criteria to become a Premium Partner is that the college pass rate exceeds the general average. This criteria ensures that students get quality tuition and experienced lecturers.
"Studying with a Premium Partner gives you the best chance of passing your CIMA exams," says CIMA Global. IBTC is CIMA South Africa's longest running Global Learning Premium Partner. This makes IBTC highly-regarded globally as a tuition provider.
"The benefit of joining a college is that you can tap into their collective expertise, benefitting from all the lessons they have learnt along the way. This means you will have a structured plan on how to tackle your studies, ultimately save time and finish your qualification faster," says Nikki Maritz, CEO of IBTC.
"There are so many stories of students who tried to study on their own and failed multiple times. Then they came to IBTC and passed first time," added Nikki.
Jessy is a prime example. She attempted her exam twice on her own without succeeding. That is when she decided to enrol with IBTC and went on to pass first time. "Having a tuition provider helped give me direction and clarity on what is expected of me in the exam," says Jessy Mahlangu, Managerial Case Study, 89%.
"There was always a lecturer or tutor present to help me and up to five progress tests and mock exams to submit for marking. Submitting these tests for marking gave me valuable feedback from an expert and ensured I stayed on schedule. That is how I passed first time," she added.
