Blended learning is a combination of joining our e learning academy, access to our offline app, twice weekly live interactive tutorials with face to face and/or skype tutorials nearer to your exam or as progress sessions to help mentor you throughout your course.Course Approach

Our blended learning approach provides a structured, logical and comprehensive course typically taken over a one-three month period. During COVID-19 period, we are only charging for one months use and this will allow access from now up to an exam anytime in in 2020.

Early access to the e learning prevents cramming of information and this pre loading of course material ensures a deeper knowledge base. This method then enables your tuition sessions to be a lot more interactive. Barry focus on situational awareness and critical thinking which are key elements of your oral exam.

In addition, another benefit of blended learning, is the reduced number of tuition sessions required. On average, candidates with this approach, have only had between, 10-26 hours. However, every candidate is individual , so the number of hours can increase or decrease as required.

With our blended learning model, or technology reinforces your face to face or Skype tutorials and enables you to remain engaged wherever you are at whatever pace you chose. The e learning academy houses 34 modules and maps the MCA syllabus thus, providing you with all the necessary key information.
