What our students say

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

“I started with the operational level while pregnant with my son and a 2-year-old daughter and a full-time job.
With the help of Astranti’s great material, I managed to pass the OT exams as well as OCS first time. That gave me some confidence to attempt MCS with a baby, toddler and full-time job. Again with the easy-to-understand and to-the-point materials, I managed to pass all my OT and MCS exams first time. I would definitely not have been able to do this without Astranti.
Their materials are at a higher standard than the actual exams (in my opinion) so if you pass their mocks and exam practice kits, you should be fine for the exams. The study material is to the point and easy to understand with great interesting real-life examples helping people with busy lives to get a grip on the content in good time.
When I started, I realized most people that do this have a whole family and work life apart from their studies and having a tuition provider like Astranti really lightens the load.

Magdek Wolff

CIMA Case Study Student, July 2022

“I used Astranti for the May 2020 OCS exam and have absolutely zero regrets and only good things to say! With no past experience of case studies and no friends who have studied CIMA, the case study was bit of a grey area which I didn’t know much about. However Astranti took all the steps to make the exam clear, give me the perfect study materials and overall build my confidence to sit the exam with a feeling I was only going to pass! If you’re looking for a CIMA study provider and especially case study material, Astranti is your place! Thanks to all at Astranti.”
