Learning successfully

Some people are lucky enough to look at something once and then remember it forever. It’s called ‘Perfect Recall’. However, for most of us learning successfully isn’t quite that simple. And you can also be assured that for your ACCA exams, it isn’t just a case of learning the facts, you need to understand the topics in order to pass the exams. So even those with perfect recall might need a little help…

Here at BPP we are the experts at helping students succeed with their studies. We have been in the Professional Qualifications market for nearly 40 years, and have helped over 150,000 students to achieve success. Our pass rates are always well above the ACCA Global Average, up to 41% higher*. So how do we help students to succeed? We want to share our secrets with you…

Our 3 steps to exam success

Our excellent pass rates are the result of a unique combination of three elements (taught, revision and exam practice) that form the foundation of all our courses.

So how does it work?

Step 1 – Taught courses

Offered In Centre Face to Face or online, our taught courses give you the perfect foundation on which to prepare for the exam.

As well as guiding you through all the key topics for the exam, you make an early start on seeing how different topics are examined, and how you must apply your knowledge to real exam questions.

Our Taught Courses provide you with:

  • The only ACCA Platinum approved materials on the market
  • Dedicated ACCA tutors with course and industry experience
  • Guidance through all key exam topics and a better understanding on how each topic will be tested
  • Advice on how to apply your knowledge to real exam questions
  • An online library of resources, covering the whole course, available from the very beginning
  • Flexible study options – mix and match In Centre Face to Face, award winning Online Classroom Live, Online Classroom or Basics

Step 2 – Revision courses

Offered In Centre Face to Face or online, our revision courses help you to focus on skills and technique and understand what the examiner is asking for. They show you how to structure your answer to get the most marks.

In recent exam sittings, pass rates have shown that you are more likely to pass your exam if you attend a revision course as well as a taught course.

If you book both a Taught and Revision course you will be covered by BPPs Free Pass Assurance** which allows you to book a free course should you be unsuccessful in your exam.

Book a Revision Course, and we’ll equip you with the following:

  • How to spot the easy marks in the exam papers
  • A full range of exam skills and techniques
  • An understanding of what the examiner is looking for
  • Practical techniques to manage your time
  • The opportunity to practice questions with full support from your tutor
  • A comprehensive Practice and Revision Kit covering real exam questions
  • The only ACCA Platinum Approved Practice and Revision kit on the market, meaning it is exclusively examiner reviewed

Step 3 – Exam Practice Course

Offered In Centre Face to Face or via our Online Classroom Live, our Exam Practice Courses allow you to rehearse for the big day by attempting a real exam standard, mock exam written by our Exam Experts. Unlike the real exam, you are given detailed 1:1 feedback on your performance and the specific improvement areas for you, plus the chance to discuss your performance with your expert tutor.

Our Exam Practice Course provides you with the chance to:

  • Take a mock exam under real examination conditions written by our Exam Experts
  • Receive 1:1 feedback from your tutor/marker
  • Learn where your knowledge gaps are, and how you can improve your exam technique
  • Discuss your performance with your expert tutor

You can sit the Exam Practice course In Centre Face to Face, via the Award Winning Online Classroom Live and it is also included in the Online Classroom Course as standard.
