IVY LEAGUEâ€™s approach to exam preparation will help build your core skills and enhance your exam technique. Our students who follow this approach consistently achieve higher pass marks.
Assess and plan:
Tutors for each paper meet to discuss the best way to structure the delivery of the course. Given the syllabus and study guide for the papers, topics are allocated and a lecture plan is developed for the course (scheme of work). At this stage, efforts are made to ensure that the teaching approach is standardized especially as it relates to question practice and structure of delivery across all streams. You will also obtain our lecture plan for the diet at the beginning of the diet so that you can track progress and plan your study accordingly.
Teach and engage:
We believe in a participatory learning style where students are continuously engaged and giving a chance to ask questions. Our study notes and PowerPoint presentations are used to enhance the efficiency of this process. Past ACCA questions are also practiced to ensure the concepts are reinforced. Questions are generally practiced at the end of each area of the syllabus. Assignments are also given and recorded in your assignment checklist contained in your study notes. Generally, students are given 5 â€“ 6 days to solve each assignment after which they are reviewed with the tutor in the class. When the tutor prefers to collect, mark and input comments on answer scripts for the assignment, this may take an additional 5 days before responses are received.
Practice and review:
Our intensive and revisions classes are generally focused on developing exam techniques through adequate question practice. We also give assignments based on carefully selected questions and students use an assignment tracker to monitor their progress. Finally, the subject lead for each paper communicates the minimum questions that candidates must ensure they practice before sitting for the exams (usually 10 â€“ 15 carefully selected questions).
Mock exams are also held across all papers usually 3 to 4 weeks before the exams and also before the final revision day. Marked scripts are provided to the candidates during the final revision day containing comments on areas where improvement is required. This will normally takes 5 â€“ 10 days after the sitting for the mock exam. The timetable for the mock exams will be released together with the revision timetable usually 6 weeks before the ACCA exams. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
