ACCA Strategic Business Leader Course

Dedicated to helping you pass the SBL exam

We’ve been helping people pass their case study exams for more than 17 years, and this experience has made us one of the leading providers in the CIMA tuition market!

As case study experts, the ACCA Strategic Business Leader (SBL) exam is the only ACCA exam that we cater for. It’s what we specialise in! And, as a result, we like to think we know what it really takes to get people through this crucial exam.

Although not exclusively, our ACCA SBL course is particularly suited to resit students, as it focuses on what it takes to get people who are struggling with this exam to pass, by:

+ helping them master the most commonly examined theory with simplified study guides and videos

+ showing them what the examiners actually want you to do to score marks in the exam (and what they’re not looking for!)

+ building those skills through exam practice and detailed personal feedback

+ gaining a detailed knowledge of the pre-seen and what’s likely to be examined

+ practising mocks based on the actual pre-seen so they are prepared for exam day

Together with excellent support from our team of dedicated case study tutors, a personal mentor to guide you through your studies and our renowned course materials, known for their clarity and simplicity, you can see why students love our courses so much – we have an excellent Trustpilot rating from over 570 reviews.

This is combined with a double guarantee that means you can try out our course and check it’s right for you without any obligation to continue, while also knowing that your one-time payment is all you’ll ever pay!

“Astranti gives the best training. The teachers there are helpful and they go the extra mile to help students. Anytime I could ask any type of questions they come back to me very quickly.
Teachers did not just help in the study. They are way beyond that. If I had a question on the case or I did not understand something they were ready to help.”

The material provided is brilliant and the course tutors know exactly what it takes to get the pass at the case studies, if you use them and put the hours in you will pass! Couldn’t recommend enough, and achieved first time passes in all professional exams.”

What our students have to say…

I used Astranti for all three of my CIMA case study exams. Astranti’s course materials, tutors, markers and support team were all incredible and I couldn’t have asked for more from my subscription package.

I would 100% recommend Astranti to any CIMA student! They go to great lengths to prepare you and ensure that you enter your exam feeling as though you are a member of the pre-seen company’s team and equipped to deal with any scenario that may come your way. I really couldn’t have passed my exams without Astranti and I am so thankful for all that they have taught me!

“Have been using Astranti for case study’s for OCS and MCS and continuing with them for SCS. First time passes with their guidance and material in both cases. I think the biggest key to success with Astranti is you personally get 3 mock’s marked by an experienced examiner for each case study. Of course you need to put in the work by completing these mocks, but the feedback is invaluable..”
