Ashim Kumar’s Student Testimonials

(UK)I know I am late with posting my ACCA results, but it took me 2 days to get used with the idea that I have passed my first professional exam in the first attempt. Only 49% of students who sat Strategic Business Leader exam this September passed; therefore, I am proud to be one of those 49%. 

I was prepared to fail knowing that I have tried my best in preparing for this exam. But all the hard work has paid off on 17th at 5 am when I got the results.

I could not have passed SBL in the first attempt without Ashim Kumar FCCA help, who guided me throughout the study programme. He has tailored his support to my needs, always fitting around my busy schedule, constantly checking my progress and mock results in zoom meetings, and full WhatsApp support for any questions. I would highly recommend FME Learn Online for ACCA students, especially for those who have exemptions for all Applied Skills exams.

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
