Full course contents

Video exam guides by Nick Best

CIMA Tutor and Case Study Exam Expert Nick Best will be giving you the best advice and tips on all the key areas of the

 exam, using his many years of experience to give you precise instructions on what you need to do to pass this paper.

Our Study Text

Nick has written a complete Study Text giving you all of the key information you need to know in order to pass the

Strategic Case Study Exam.

SCS Pre-seen Materials by Peter Stiff

Pre-seen Analysis

A paragraph by paragraph video guide to the pre-seen, picking up all the key issues from the preseen and examining
how that relates to the company, and what you need to do with that information in the exam.

Strategic Analysis of the Pre-seen

A detailed Strategic Analysis of the pre-seen using the key strategic models and theories to give you an in-depth
understanding of the organisation and its position in the market. The Strategic Analysis is available in both video and
written format.

Top 10 Issues

We give our view on the 10 issues most likely to appear in the exam based on the pre-seen, along with our guide on how you would best approach these issues.

Industry Analysis

Comparisons between the fictional company to a similar real life organisation giving you all the necessary information, including wider industry analysis that you will need to know for the exam. The Industry Analysis includes both a written document and a 3 part video series.

Two Online Masterclasses - All day tuition and revision sessions

Our masterclasses are live, all day (9am-3.30pm), Exam focused events. They are hosted online and are recorded for students that cannot attend live.

Masterclass 1 - The Keys to Passing the SCS - Date: Saturday 22nd April 2017

Masterclass 2 - The Revision Masterclass - Date: Saturday 20th May 2017

Online Mock Exams

Our online system for the Case Study Exam has been endorsed and praised by CIMA- see a sample of our mock exam system here.

You will have access to 5 full mock exams which will be marked by our qualified and experienced team of markers.

We pride ourselves in providing industry leading levels of feedback on your mock exams using our unique marking checklist. You will see each mock exam marked on the same checklist so you can compare each mock and see in which areas you continue to fall down, enabling you to clarify where and how you need to improve.

As a SCS student you will be assigned your own SCS Exam Marker who will mark your mock exams and give you detailed guidance and advice. These tutors are highly experienced and know exactly what you need to do to pass.

Ethics Pack

The recent examiners report highlighted that ethical issues were often overlooked by candidates or they were only briefly addressed in their answers. To ensure that you are ready for any ethics question, we have designed a pack which contains all the information you need to know on the topic.

Personal advice and guidance

In addition to the detailed, personal mock feedback you also receive

Access to the course’s private forum:

As part of the course there will be several progress reviews to ensure you remain on track towards the exam.

Our Double Guarantee

We are full confidence you will find the course is what you need to help you pass the exam and so offer two guarantees:

1.  14 day money back guarantee

If, within, 14 days of signing up you are not happy in anyway, you can obtain a full refund on the fees. We are really confident you'll find the quality of the material and support very high and will be confident that it's what you need to pass - but if you don't, you can get all your money back at any time within that first 14 day period.

2.  Pass guarantee

If you complete the full course and still don't pass the real exam, you can continue with us to the next course at no additional charge. We're very confident that people who complete the whole course will pass, but as long as you continue to complete subsequent courses, you can also continue at no additional charge, ensuring this is the last fee you’ll ever have pay for passing your exam.

As evidence of completing the full course, you will need to do a brief summary of each video, attend the Masterclasses (or summarise them if you listen later), and submit your answer scripts for the 5 mock exams according to the deadlines in the course timetable, achieving an average score of 40% in the exams as evidence of a reasonable attempt having been made.

A note from Nick:

Having tutored TOPCIMA at BPP, Kaplan, Reed Business School and First Intuition, I do believe that they all provide excellent quality courses, and I would highly recommend all of them, particularly compared with trying to go it alone, which is very hard to do in this exam.

However they have significant overheads in their training centres that at Astranti we do not have, and that enables us to provide high quality courses at a significantly lower price. I do hope you decide to join us.
