CIMA Strategic Case Study

Live Online – Masterclasses

Our recorded lectures and study texts give you all the content you need to pass the exams.

But…

There’s nothing quite like being in a class live with a true expert in the case study exams as they explain what it takes to pass, giving you their personal perspective from many years of experience.

Our masterclasses are not just more lectures. They are interactive and dynamic. You’ll undertake a variety of exercises designed to get you thinking about the pre-seen and the exam and analyse your own strengths and weaknesses so you come out with a checklist of points to work on.

You’ll also get to debate the exams with other students, hear how they’re finding the exams and be able to ask the experts your own questions live too.

Over three weekend sessions in the run up to the exam you will enhance your case study skills and learn more about what it takes for you to gain those crucial extra marks.

Masterclass 1 – The pre-seen masterclass

CIMA SCS Webinars

Pre-seen knowledge is key to success in the strategic case study exam.

Masterclass 1 is the perfect introduction to your case study preparations, as it focuses heavily on the pre-seen and related knowledge that you need to know to progress with your studies.

In short, the masterclass tutor will:

+ Provide an analysis of the pre-seen
+ Link the key theory and models from the syllabus to the pre-seen
+ Review the pre-seen company industry
+ Take you through our list of the 10 most likely exam issues based on the pre-seen

As always, the masterclass tutor will take your questions throughout the day, so you can come away feeling confident in your pre-seen knowledge by the end of the session.

Masterclass 2 – The keys to passing

CIMA SCS Live Classes

By the Masterclass 2 date, you should have a really good understanding of all things pre-seen-related. 

So, what else do you need to know to increase your chances of success in the case study exam?

Well, one of the biggest challenges students face in case study exams is not pre-seen or theory related at all. It’s their exam technique! This is THE most important day for most students as it’s technique not knowledge that lets most people down.

Masterclass 2 focuses on teaching you all the exam skills you need to master to successfully complete the exam in the time provided.

You will learn how to:
+ Create effective answer plans to focus what you write
+ Improve your exam writing style to earn more marks in fewer words
+ Manage your time in the exam to complete the exam (it’s very common that people do not complete the full exam and fail as a result)
+ Construct answers that score high marks

Masterclass 3 – The revision masterclass

CIMA SCS Revision masterclass

Effective use of the final few days before the case study exams is vital!

By now, you will have hopefully learned the majority of the theory, pre-seen and application skills that you need, and you will have had the opportunity to test your exam skills out with your mock exams.

However, you can still learn things at this stage that will increase your chances of success. Remember, the difference between a pass and a fail can just be one point!

Masterclass 3, or the ‘revision masterclass’ will ensure that you have covered everything you need to cover before the exam, plus some new topics that will help you even more, including:
+ What our SCS markers are saying about mock scripts so far
+ Our pre-learned paragraphs based on the pre-seen to score extra marks in the exam
+ Identifying key personal areas for improvement from your mock exam scripts

This is also your last chance to ask your tutor final questions on anything to do with the exam! What do you need to know to get through? Now is your opportunity to gain that knowledge.

What our students have to say…

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

“Thanks so much Astranti for thoroughly preparing me for the CIMA SCS. From the superb masterclasses to the excellent preparation on how to develop the proper writing style the examiner wants to see. I have used Astranti for all 3 case studies and passed each first time. I will always recommend Astranti to other CIMA students at my place of work. Thanks again and keep doing what you do!”

“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.”
