Q: What is the average completion time for these courses?
A: Our statistics are showing that on average our students are completing B1 in 48 days and B2 in 79 days.
Q: Do I need a computer?
A: Yes. It is essential as you will need to complete a series of online knowledge tests, practical assignments and the mock exams and full exams are online. A tablet could be used although it would be slightly restricting with screen size.
Microsoft Excel is recommended for the practical activities.
Q: Do I have a designated tutor or will it change depending on when I ask for help.
A: You will have a designated tutor for the duration of the course. Questions and marking of assignments is guaranteed to be less than 24 hours during the week, although the average response time between 9am and 5.30pm is less than 2 hours. Weekends and evenings can take a little longer. Answers to online knowledge tests are instant and available 24/7
Q: If I fail an exam do you cover the cost of taking it again?
A: No. We have an exams department plus many online tests and simulations to prepare our students for exams. It is only when both student and tutor are 100% confident that we put anyone forward for an exam. We have very few students failing exams and as such do not factor resit fees into our prices. We have discounts available on exam fees so in the unlikely event of a failure the full price would never be payable.
Q: Do I need Sage on my computer for this course.
A: No. This course does not cover Computerised Bookkeeping. it focuses on the knowledge and practical aspects of bookkeeping which can then be transposed into Computersed Bookeeping. Computerised Bookkeeping starts with the B3 course
