What our students say

Please see our Live Testimonials Page for all our latest testimonials. Here are a couple of examples:

“I found the Astranti mocks very useful. They were key to my last stage of preparation in the run up to the exams. They are far more exhaustive in their scope that the actual CIMA variants. But this is good. If you can surmount the Astranti mocks successfully within the stipulated 3 hours, you are very likely to breeze through the actual CIMA exams. Value for money.”
Charlie Holdsworth

Passed CIMA SCS, May 2017

“Thank you very much for all your help and support. I passed my SCS exam and I can say that when I got to the exam I was prepared. The marking and feedback was very useful, my marker always pushed me to do better and helped me to improve the areas where I had some weaknesses and, thanks to all his recommendations, I went to the exam feeling more confident. I am a very happy customer and I highly recommend Astranti as a tuition provider.”
