Hi I have failed with 74. I have used all videos and materials with Asranti which I thought was helpful but I think CIMA was looking for something else! I don't think I get any points from using industry examples, I will concentrate more on the CIMA text books next time.
Got my results. I failed with 75%. Last time Feb'15, I failed technical skills and got 60%. However I have been using Cimastudy all along. Only discovered Astranti this Feb'16 when I was about to write. I will use Astranti for my May exam and hope to pass on my 3rd attempt. Congratulations to all that have made it. Well done.
Dear Nick..no wonder "best" is part of your name..indeed you are the BEST. passed SCS with 89. Thanks for the great videos, Mocks & Ethics pack. The videos were really helpful to listen on the go as I had to travel around. The mock exams were clearly exam focussed. Appreciate great work and I consider the amount i spent as an investment..Thank you Nick BEST & the wonderful team.
Passed with 96! This was my second time attempting and I decided not to do the course again with my old provider and only get the Astranti Pre-seen kit & all 5 mocks. Great resources thank you so much!
I passed with 99. I did a lot of preparation was having a good feeling during the exam and I am wondering how one can score significantly above 100???
What was very helpful to me where those 6 mock exam from Astranti taken under real exam conditions together with the feedback provided. Moreover the strategic analysis and also the guidance on how to approach/structure an answer was helpful as well along with the tips on how to use the models.
Looking back, key tips in passing the exam is know the present material inside out and that way you don't waste time in the exam. I didn't buy the whole course and I found nicks videos most useful in helping with this.i then researched the industry so I could drop in examples into the exam. Also know the theory from p3,e3 & f3 however don't study the whole syllabus again. And finally practice the mock exams - they are so useful as case study exams are different to the objective tests I was used to. The feedback I received from the marker was helpful and helped my exam technique a lot.
I passed with 80.To be very honest, I have not taken any mock exams or paid courses here. However I found the exam writing tips and general suggestions by Astranti very useful. Its a great feeling to pass in first attempt!
