ACCA SBL pre-seen pack

The pre-seen is at the heart of every case study exam, and to secure a pass, you must be confident that you fully understand the company and its industry.

Why? Well, the examiner expects nothing less than your ability to put EVERYTHING you’ve learned into the context of the pre-seen scenario.

However, with only two weeks to prepare once the pre-seen is released, your time is precious!

Over the years, we’ve helped tens of thousands of students pass their case study exams, and our team of case study experts knows exactly what it takes to pass. In creating our pre-seen pack, they have put in a lot of the hard work for you, crafting a comprehensive pack that analyses the case in detail.

All in all, the pack has been designed with one thing in mind. To boost your chances of passing.

Oh, and best of all, most of the content from our pre-seen pack is completely free!

Why free?

Well, we’re keen to establish ourselves as one of the go-to ACCA SBL tuition providers, and we hope you love our material so much you won’t help but recommend our packs to others and consider upgrading to our course if you are struggling to pass and want personal support to get through this exam. It’s as simple as that!

Countdown to the June ACCA SBL pre-seen release day:








“I came across Astranti study materials while preparing for my ACCA SBL exam. The material was extremely extensive and detailed and I appreciate the breakdown videos for the preseen case study, they were very helpful as well as the other documents such as the industry analysis that gave me a further insight into the industry I was going to be assessed on. The two mock exams were the cherry on top, those questions throughly equipped me for the exam and fortunately enough the exam had similar type of questions so it gave me extra confidence. I would recommend Astranti as a learning provider to anyone doing their SBL studies you will not go wrong I guarantee this.”

While you don’t need to do further industry research to pass this exam, we believe a wider industry knowledge will enable you to provide better advice based on what’s happening in the real world. And that’s what the examiners want – practical, real-life advice applicable to the case study company.

Our expert team has spent hours researching the industry for you, finding the information to help you achieve a wider perspective of the industry.

Strategic analysis

It’s extremely important that you have the ability to identify how the pre-seen relates to key models and theory from ACCA SBL specification. The examiners expect students to demonstrate a good understanding of the models and theories and make the appropriate links to the case study during the exam.

It can be hard to fully analyse a company using models you’ve only recently learned and be confident you’ve got it right. Our strategic analysis has done the hard work for you!

Note: The Strategic Analysis is not part of our free pre-seen analysis pack, but can be purchased as a standalone product or access on our premium and standard courses.

What our students say

Please see our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“Definitely recommend them for SBL (first time pass). The case was broken down in a way that helped me understand and remember. The analysis was worked on thoroughly and the team worked very hard to produce the best.”

“I want to say a big thank for pre-seen materials, I even can’t expect to pass the exam with 59 mark, it was my 3rd time, and I can say that I really struggle with fast writing, but mostly due to my English level, that I need to improve. But all pre-seen materials helped me so well that I noticed that my writing was really faster and I spent less time to think about each point. I was happy with how I did the exam and now I happy with result. Thank you for your work.
