Importance of tuition at Advanced Level Papers

CR and ACS have AI now. Students need a good analysis of this from experience tutors.

The AI is normally UK focused. Hence having UK tutors means the UK centric issues can be explained clearly

ICAEW exams are very real world focused and practical. They appear difficult at first due to the length, content etc. but experienced tutor can guide students to what is needed in a pass standard answer.

Pass rates are much higher in the final paper. But passes still contingent on good studying techniques.

ICAEW papers have different style of marking – especially ACS.  Need to understand this to pass the examination.

Why is face-to-face tuition important?

  • Having tutors “live” as it were means students can ask questions on AI and of course other study materials in lectures etc.
  • Marking of mock exams by experienced tutors – shows what else is needed to pass and not just which points have scored marks. Students can focus on improving their weaknesses
  • Meeting other students in the same class to share experiences and questions with
  • You get direct feedback from tutors during class – answering questions etc
  • Higher pass rate compared to self-study
    • Students are taught to focus on presenting in concise manner
  • Time-saving because:
    • Tutors focus on key topics to help students achieve content mastery

    • A rigorous time schedule actually helps students achieve work-study balance and save time.
