*June 2022 Season: a message from Ashim*

I am currently heavily involved in ACCA global projects as an SBL Tutor Expert, and delivering a major project for a client. I am passionate about teaching SBL, but these commitments mean I cannot deliver SBL training to the high standards I set myself.

I have therefore reluctantly decided to take a sabbatical for the June 2022 SBL sitting. I expect to be back at FME for September 2022. I wish you all every success in your ACCA journey and look forward to connecting on my return.

Ashim Kumar’s Student Testimonials

SBL is a daunting paper; it requires knowledge of many earlier ACCA papers as well as containing huge amounts of data to analyse in four hours. Mr Kumar guided me through a system for dealing with all these challenges as well as teaching me the right exam technique. I enrolled on Mr Kumar’s on-line Revision course only 10 days before the first SBL sitting and I passed. I earned 82% ! Thank you Mr Kumar
