ACCA Student Testimonials

Angelique Therese Manessa Prasad (Country of Origin: Seychelles)

 

I embarked on the ACCA Accelerate Programme in February 2023, a pivotal step that aligned with my academic pursuits and professional aspirations.

Balancing the challenging Strategic Business Leader (SBL) and Strategic Business Reporting (SBR) exams with my degree was tough, but I gave it my all. I passed SBL in September 2023 and SBR in March 2024, on my first tries! It took dedication and smart studying, but with the amazing support from my APU lecturers, I never gave up.

Today, I am proud to share my success and encourage others who might feel daunted by the ACCA strategic exams. Yes, they are challenging, but with the right mindset, determination, and rigorous practice, they are indeed conquerable.

 
  

Siew Sze Yuen (Country of Origin: Malaysia)

 

I have passed my SBR exam recently in Dec'23 sitting for 1st attempt and highly recommend experienced and dedicated tutors not only cover the exam topics, but also the exam techniques which helped me a lot during my preparation. I’m grateful to have ACCA Accelerated Programme and preparatory course in APU which given me a chance to begin my ACCA journey early during my degree study. Most importantly, the tuition fee was still affordable with a lot of physical and online material provided.
