Strategic Business Management Mock Exam Pack 2022

Why use our SBM Mock Exam Pack?

Our Mocks have been written specifically for SBM
: unlike some of the questions in the ICAEW Question Bank which are based on very old questions originally written for the previous "Business Change" paper, our Mocks have been written specifically for the SBM syllabus so you will gain exposure to Mocks that are similar to the real SBM papers.

You will gain access to realistic model answers: we have carefully constructed our model answers to be realistic in the time available, ensuring that our model answers are a better indication of what is achievable in the time available than the official ICAEW answers (most of which are excessively long) - no more feeling overwhelmed or intimidated by the impossibly long ICAEW answers!

We provide tutor advice and tips (including explanation of how to estimate the number of marks available for different parts of an SBM paper - absolutely vital for time management!): since the Mocks in our SBM Mock Exam Pack have been written by tutors (rather than examiners), we have provided plenty of tutor tips which we know will help students.

You will be able to gain further practice of other syllabus areas: SBM is a very open examination so the more practice you get, the better but there is no point practising content that covers the same areas already dealt with by the existing ICAEW resources. Our Mock Exam Pack therefore covers some important and examinable areas not covered by the existing resources.

Tutor technique tips

Our Mock Exam Pack provides a lot more explanation of examination technique than the standard ICAEW materials. 

The examiners don't necessarily make the best tutors (and we would not really want to be examiners!), so our Mock Exam Pack has the advantage of being written from the ground up as a way to support students.

I used your guidance and Exam Room Notes and have very comfortably passed all 3 of my final exams. I cannot recommend you highly enough for the value you provide and I hope you continue to grow and help more people succeed. Compared with the previous provider I used, your notes are more succinct and easier to use in an exam and the Mock Exam answers are comprehensive. Thank you!

I want to express my huge gratitude to you for all your support. I only used your resources to prepare for the exams (Exam Room Notes, Q&As, on-demand videos, TIS and the Case Study tuition course) and every single one of them was extremely useful. Even though I had very little time to prepare, your resources are perfectly structured and complement each other ideally (especially the materials - they were absolutely brilliant!). Please keep the standard as high as you have now - you have no competitors at the same level.

I have bought all of your books for the Advanced Level sitting - they are VERY good! I've found them so helpful. Your books have been such a good study help, especially for Case and SBM and I've had a lot more exam technique help from you.

I am emailing to say a big thank you to your team. I used your services over the last 2 years (SBM Exam Room Notes, BPT/BST TIS) and attended a Case Study Masterclass. You guys are really knowledgeable and I've really appreciated your help along the way to getting qualified. Will continue to recommend your services to junior associates coming through the ranks.

I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for writing such fantastic material - I passed Case Study with a score of 78 due to your materials. It really is in a different league to the provider I was with. You also helped me to pass my SBM retake in November 2016 (again, with a score of 78), so I really cannot express my gratitute enough!

I am pleased to say I passed with 80 marks! I can’t be more grateful your team for all the help in the study materials and I couldn’t imagine a better way to prepare! I have been a loyal user of your materials (esp the Exam Room Notes) for the Advanced Level examinations and they’re SUPER useful (scored 81 for CR, 70 for SBM and CS score abovementioned), so a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to the tutors for the hard work and dedication especially with such a challenging time for the Case Study paper.
