ACCA ATX (UK) Richard Poole’s Platinum Package


The ACCA ATX (UK) Platinum Package is Richard’s ultimate and most comprehensive ACCA ATX course. It incorporates all you need to ensure you are ready to pass ACCA ATX. This package enrols you on Richard’s Tuition, Revision and Mock courses, and includes the latest Kaplan Study Text and Exam Kit (as ebooks).

Richard will be personally available every step of your journey with WhatsApp support.  Right from the outset you get used to seeing the standard you must ultimately achieve to pass ACCA ATX.

The Tuition Course contains 7 ‘macro areas’ and 27 chapters, taking you methodically through the ATX syllabus.  The macro video-lectures are authored by Richard, and provide you with a 'helicopter view' and key issues of that area.  They focusing on the most examinable areas and using simple but effective methods of linking these areas together.

Richard's 27 chapter video-lectures use the latest Kaplan Integrated Workbook (NOT the Study Text, which is overly detailed). On average, every 5 chapters you get to submit a question to Richard for marking and feedback. This is key to consolidating knowledge throughout the tuition phase.

The Revision Course concentrates on past exam standard question practice using the ACCA CBE practice platform.

You will see Richard work 24 past exam questions on the ACCA CBE software. These questions are split over the 8 core areas of the ATX exam. Richard guides you carefully through the revision course over a three-week period. At the end of each of the weeks you submit a question on the CBE software to Richard for marking and feedback.

The philosophy here is that the best way to teach exam technique is a combination of seeing Richard work exam questions – hearing his thought processes as he translates the requirements and identifies what is required – and working questions yourself.

The Mock Exam Course is the finale of the Platinum Package. On this phase, you will attempt two full mock exams. Having had your homework marked during the revision phase, you'll now know what the exam technique required to maximise the marks are.

Your worked exam script is marked to the real exam standard, giving you invaluable feedback (as written and audio comments).  In recent sittings, the average increase in student marks between the first mock and the last mock was 15%!

The WhatsApp group is for Richard to answer your questions: it is not an exercise in the ‘blind leading the blind’. Mutual student support is encouraged, but the exchange of copyright materials between students (by any means), or any attempt by a student to obtain such materials from another student, will lead to exclusion from the course.
