As previously stated, we are one of an exclusive group of Approved CGMA Finance Leadership Programme Providers. However, it’s important to us that you make the right choice of FLP provider, based on your needs, so we encourage you to review our FLP course against the CGMA Skills Plus and CGMA/Kaplan Skills Premium products to ensure you’re making the right choice.

What exactly do you get on Astranti’s FLP?

Learn more about our learning resources, case study course materials and support below.

LEARNING

Use our FLP library to fill the gaps and further test your knowledge when completing each of the FLP subjects.

CGMA FLP platform

Access all of the competency learning material that is available through CIMA’s own FLP system, including study notes, tuition videos, practice questions and competency assessments.

Astranti FLP library

The FLP library gives you hundreds of hours of video, thousands of pages of study text and hundreds of practice questions to hone your skills to get you through your assessments. The idea is not that you read or work through everything here, but that you dip into our materials if you need further explanation while studying or if you fail an assessment and need more support.
You’ll have access to:

  • Reading material taken from our Professional Qualification study texts to help clarify any concepts that you’re unsure of, or provide you with a broader understanding of the subject area.
  • Excerpts from our Professional Qualification video series to provide a video summary of the majority of the key FLP subjects.
  • Subject area practice questions to test your general understanding of each subject you study.
  • Topic assessment questions to prepare you for the topic assessments.

“I’ve used Astranti as my tuition provider for my CIMA Operational Level exams. The way they present complex subjects in a clear digestible manner is priceless.”
Ben, March 2022

“They are simply the BEST. The materials are great, good value for money and the videos are very good. I cannot recommend them highly enough!”
Marcella, August 2022

CASE STUDY

Join our premium case study courses and get all the study materials, live sessions and support you need to pass.

Pre-seen analysis videos

It’s vital that you fully analyse your pre-seen. This requires a detailed examination of the case study ensuring that every section is fully understood.
Our pre-seen analysis videos provide a page-by-page analysis of every section of the pre-seen. It ensures you don’t miss anything important and helps to build a comprehensive understanding of the material. This is vital if you are to gain high marks in the exam.

Strategic analysis

It’s extremely important that you have the ability to identify how the pre-seen relates to key models and theories from the syllabus. 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 only recently learned models and be confident you’ve got it right. Our strategic analysis has done the hard work for you!

Industry analysis

It’s critical to demonstrate to the examiner that you have fully understood the pre-seen industry, as a key element to gaining extra high marks in your case study exam.
Researching the industry can be a laborious process, so our team has spent hours doing this research for you!

Top 10 most likely issues analysis

The top 10 issues identify the 10 most likely issues to appear in the exam. Our case study experts give guidance on how to deal with the issues in your answers and advise which models to use and key points you should raise.
Based on our experience of analysing CIMA case studies for over 10 years, our predictions have been extremely accurate in previous exams, with around 70-80% of topics in the real exams being covered in our top 10 lists.

Mock exams and debrief videos

Five unique mock exams based on the current pre-seen written by our case study experts, as well as corresponding videos recorded by our tutors to analyse the mock exams and how best to approach them. (Seven mock exams are included if you complete the exam on the August or February exam sittings).

Expert marking and feedback

Complete three marked mocks by the course deadlines and receive your grade along with tailored exam feedback from your assigned mock marker. Learn specifically what you need to do to pass the real thing. Our markers are then available to answer your questions on how to improve.

Live online masterclasses

At three points on the course, our experienced case study tutors will guide you through the pre-seen, key theory and top exam tips to get you ready for your final exam, as well as being on hand to answer your questions.

Theory revision video series

We’ve looked at all the past exams and identified the most regularly examined topics at case study and provided you with study texts and revision videos to quickly revise all the key theory.

'How to pass the case study' video course

Arguably the most important aspect of our case study course. This study text and video series show you the secrets of passing the case study exams – and they’re not about learning theory – it’s all about understanding what you need to do to get the markers to give you marks!

Dedicated ethics pack

Ethics is the most commonly examined topic in all three case study exams, so mastering it is cruical, and yet surprisingly difficult. Our ethics pack contains a text book, video and set of practice questions that will ensure you excel in the ethics questions in your exam.

60 case study questions pack

We’ve taken 60 past exam questions and given them their own brief, tailored scenarios so you can do them without having to learn the relevant past pre-seens. This ensures you have all the question practice you need. These can be completed to get you up to speed prior to the preseen being released, or as extra practice when you’ve completed your mock exams . Each comes with a detailed solution in our recommended exam style.

“Astranti help you develop the correct exam writing style required to pass and gain the additional marks that could be the difference in passing or not.”
John, October 2022

“The analysis and guides have provided me with the in-depth and extra knowledge that is needed to do well when it comes to taking the exams.”
Chris Pullinger, May 2022

SUPPORT

Get experienced tutor guidance and dedicated mentor support from day one, until the day you become qualified.

Tutor assistance

Whenever there’s a tricky bit of theory that you just can’t seem to get your head around, our expert CIMA tutors will be there to help you out. Just use our course discussion hub to get in touch, which may be familiar to some as it is hosted on Google Classrooms.

Mentor support

From when you join to the day you pass, your course mentor will be on hand to help you create and stick to your study plan, and will be available to contact throughout your studies to help with anything you might need.

“I did the MCS with Astranti and I can’t thank them enough for all their help and support and getting me to passing first time!”
Courtney Prestage, July 2022

“I would 150% recommend Astranti to others in the future and I want to say thank you to all the lecturers and professors who put in the time and effort to make such in depth and detailed videos and notes.”
Michael Whitehouse, October 2022

“I had originally used CIMA Study by Kaplan and although had passed all my exams using this, found it was taking too long and there was no structure to the courses. Astranti courses give you a weekly schedule which I found really useful and accelerated my learning drastically. The assistance from the team is really good and highly personal with a mentor being assigned to you.”
Matthew, February 2022

What our students say

We have an excellent Trustpilot rating. Visit our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“Having used Kaplan for most of my studies purely out of routine, I decided to give Astranti a go for my Strategic Case Study exam.

The materials were great, in depth and thorough and covered every possible eventuality. I was so impressed with the teaching videos and found Astranti invaluable for my most important exam.

I achieved a first time pass with my highest ever case study result out of the 3 levels and this would not have been possible without Astranti. I only wish I had used their materials sooner!”

Holly

October 2020

“I have utilised Astranti for both the operational and management case study exams for CIMA. The amount of content provided by Astranti is quite easily the best in the market for the course.

The masterclasses allow you to communicate with other students in a virtual classroom environment, which aids learning. However, the most important element of these courses is the mock exams and feedback from markers is invaluable in helping ensure that come the exam day you are able to pass, which I managed to do with flying colours!!”
