3 courses in 1 PLUS Pass assurance

My ACCA FR Platinum Package enrols you on my other 3 courses (Tuition, Revision and Mock Exam) at a discount to their individual prices, AND gives you a Pass Assurance to give you peace of mind. Too much stress is the enemy of effective learning: this is my contribution to avoiding that.

For the detail of what is included in each of these products, please see the product descriptions:

This is ‘old fashioned teaching’ at its best, merged with modern delivery.  The course opens on 1st of the month, just over 5 months before your exam.  Don’t worry if you plan to enrol after this: you set your own learning pace once enrolled.  Terms and Conditions for pass assurance can be found on the T's & C’s tab.

*Please note that progression to revision and mock courses is contingent on adequate progress in tuition.  If, in my opinion, you do not make adequate progress on your tuition course then you will not be enrolled on revision.  Instead you will be deferred to the subsequent sitting tuition course under the t&cs shown in the t&cs tab above.

This is the combination of ‘old fashioned teaching’ with a modern delivery
