The SBL examination is unlike anything that you have come across in your studies so far. The paper requires candidates to use commercial, professional and ethical judgement to address complex business challenges under time constraints; much as you are expected to do in the real world.
The curriculum relies extensively on knowledge from earlier ACCA subjects; including Accountant in Business, Corporate and Business Law, Performance Management, Financial Reporting, Audit and Assurance, and Financial Management, and, there is a strong emphasis on ethics and professional skills throughout the syllabus. All relevant topics will be covered during the Tuition Course.
This ACCA SBL Tuition Course combines on-demand lectures and notes, ACCA approved Workbooks, access to a private WhatsApp group, articles, and a Mock exam with marking and feedback. Additionally, we will focus strongly on the ACCA’s ‘Professional Skills’ which carry 20% of the marks in the examination.
To avoid a last-minute panic, and assuming you are also working full-time, Ashim Kumar recommends that you start your ACCA SBL Tuition Course no later than 8 weeks before the exam. Your tuition course will open approximately 5 months before your exam date.
I am offering this course at a super-low price to give you a chance to experience the benefits of disintermediation in the training space first hand: excellence at a low price. I am confident that having experienced this tuition course you will choose to book some form of revision and/or mock SBL course to complete your studies. Unlike my other SBL courses, no deferral of this course is possible.
