Why do you need it?

We get many emails from CIMA students, especially Gateways students, asking us - how should they prepare for their upcoming exam. 

Based on those emails we've realised that what you need is a comprehensive overview of what the Management Case Study is about. 

If you don't understand what MCS is testing, what is expected of you, the likelihood of your success is fairly low. Just look at the recent pass rates - for Gateway students the Nov 2017 pass rate was ONLY 17%!

We handpicked the videos that are going to contribute to your success. The videos are put together in manageable chunks, between 5 to 40 mins long. Altogether 4 hours. We want you to succeed, to learn and not to fall asleep while watching.

MCS Revisions Package

Here's what you can expect to get:

  • 3 (E2, P2 and F2) professionally prepared revision videos.

  • Key theory needed for the MCS covered.

  • Focused purely on the MSC preparation.

  • Each video is 1h long, Handouts included.

  • A MUST for the MCS preparation.

  • Prepared by expert CIMA tutors, based on the Kaplan's newest resources.

  • Access granted for 365 days.


BONUS #1 - Introduction video to MCS.

BONUS #2 - Ethics video for the MCS.

Every CIMA student deads about this part of MCS preparation process. Management level syllabus revision is an important step in your preparation, but we either overdo it or postpone revising till we realise that there is no time left for mocks.

Either way, comprehensive revision is a must!

We've decided to make this step easier for you and we have prepared a set of 3 x 1 hour long videos: (each for E2, P2 and F2), so you can revise your past papers in no time! The videos are focused on explaining the most important topics from each paper from the MCS perspective. 

Remember, there will be no sophisticated calculations. You have already been tested on that (or exempted if you are on a Gateway route). You need to show the application of the knowledge from each paper. 

MCS Revisions Package comes with downloadable slides, so you can make your own notes while watching these videos.

Note: This is just a revision, not a "learn from scratch" kind of product. Also it revises the current syllabus and it is not specifically oriented at MCS May exam.
