Hi there and I hope you are well. I would like to introduce you to how I am going to make sure you have all the necessary knowledge and understanding to pass your SBL exam. I am assuming that you will be attempting the exam in a computer-based exam format but if this is not the case please get in touch.

SBL was launched to make sure that students were fully prepared for the kind of competencies needed in the workplace going forward. Unlike many of your previous exams in which you have been successful, SBL is not a technical exam and as such does not require you to learn lots of technical information which you then need to regurgitate to answer your exam questions. In fact, if you did answer your SBL questions this way you would actually be penalised by not being awarded any professional skills marks.

I know you are going to appreciate the SBL courses I have created using over 25 years of teaching experience, both as tutors of SBL students and of SBL tutors.  I was fortunate to design and deliver the global training of SBL tutors when it was launched and continue to do so.  These course give you the benefit of online flexibility, but at the same time direct contact with me via WhatsApp and email.  If I feel you need help I may contact you with advice on getting back on track and help with your motivation and concentration.

Sean Purcell is PQ magazine Lecturer of the Year 2020, ACCA SBL guru, with 25+ years’ experience in helping thousands of students pass their ACCA final level accountancy papers.
