When I started VIVA's course I was not sure what to expect during the exam, but I feel much more confident now. Thank you so much to Kelly and the amazing team at VIVA!
Edache Harmony
I want to thank VIVA for bringing to a successful end my study journey. I only wish I knew about VIVA earlier! Since using VIVA, I have passed my final exams.
Emma Newton
I have used VIVA for all three Case Studies, passing first time on all three. I could not have done it without VIVA's help! Hands down, the best resource out there for CIMA Case Studies.

The Elite Course Difference

The Ultimate Case Study Preparation
Rafaela Baraldi
Before I signed up with VIVA's Elite course I was already enrolled with another tuition provider, and the way VIVA runs this course is 100x better! I will highly recommend you to my coworkers who are early in their CIMA journey.
Helen Wheeler
Our Elite Course tutor was fantastic, very motivational and created an excellent dynamic within the group. Thanks VIVA for a great course!
Autum Bressington
VIVA were absolutely key in my CIMA Case Study exam - where I received first position in the world! I felt extremely supported with VIVA throughout the course, and would recommend them to anybody. I just wish I had found them much earlier in my studies!

Hotspot sessions

As well as access to over 10 hours of on-demand video lectures covering the core syllabus, you will find bonus "Hotspot Sessions". For those particularly trick subject areas, your tutor offers a deeper dive to ensure understanding.

  • Complex topics are broken down into plain English
  • All hotspot topics are explained with concrete examples
  • Walkthroughs of exam-style questions to ensure full comprehension

Live webinars

Tap into your course tutor’s deep expertise by asking questions & getting answers immediately. From pre-seen analyses to mid-course check-ins, our live sessions cover a range of topics and student needs. And if you miss a session, you can always watch the replay.

  • Interact with your CIMA tutors during Q&A segments
  • Never miss a session with full replay access
  • Mock writing guidance, theory applied sessions, and more.

Personalisation and learning analytics

  • Choose how you see your answers - after each question, or after the exam
  • See mock breakdown of how you scored in each syllabus area

Complete mock exam coverage

Exam technique is just as important as your theoretical knowledge. The Case Study course comes complete with professionally written mock exams as standard (3 for OCS, 5 for MCS and SCS), freshly written for each new pre-seen cycle. Our mocks are weighted in accordance with official CIMA subject and grading criteria.

  • Professionally written mocks tailored to current pre-seen document

The workshop sessions are more interactive, with your coach inviting you and your elite colleagues to propose any topics or problem-areas you might want unlocked each week.

Ashim will also reveal to you what makes a great exam answer and a poor answer, and guide you through all aspects of the exam so you know exactly what to expect on the big day. View sample

Lucia Morais
I’m pleased to share that I passed my MCS exam! I consider VIVA masters in CIMA Case Study tuition. From now on I’m studying only with VIVA as my tuition provider!
Autum Bressington
VIVA were absolutely key in my CIMA Case Study exam - where I received first position in the world! I felt extremely supported with VIVA throughout the course, and would recommend them to anybody. I just wish I had found them much earlier in my studies!
Godson Kumah
I have passed my SCS using VIVA. I had failed 3 times with other tuition providers. The difference for me was expert feedback on the mock exams.
Guido Sgarbi
I have noticed a significant increase in my marks after the introduction of VIVA's professional marking and feedback. I managed to pass all three Case Study exams at the 1st attempt and this wouldn't have been possible without VIVA.
Rachel Elliott
Very helpful insights into the Case Study exams. Great explanations and examples!
Shaminda Angodage
When I started VIVA's course I was not sure what to expect during the exam, but I feel much more confident now. Thank you so much to Kelly and the amazing team at VIVA!

Course FAQs

How much will this cost? (MCS Elite)

Less than you might think. As always, VIVA aims to offer best-in-class CIMA tuition at a price that traditional tuition providers cannot match.

While other tuition providers offer courses with similar features from £799 to £1,500, VIVA's Elite Course costs just £599. And there’s no compromise on quality - attested to by VIVA’s track record of prizewinning students and award-winning courses (CIMA Global Pass Rate Excellence Award 2020)

How do the instalments work? (MCS Elite)

We try to make it as easy as possible for students, as we know the CIMA journey can be a costly one. Here’s how our Elite payment plan works:

  • Pay a small one-time deposit of just £99 to secure your place and start studying
  • One month later, you’ll be notified to pay the first £100 instalment
  • In two months, you’ll be sent the second payment link of £100
  • And so on until you have covered the remainder of £500
What if I take this course and still fail my exam? (MCS Elite)

That would be surprising! We typically see our Elite Course students register huge improvements and almost all of them pass.

However, if you do sit the exam and fail, you can avail of our pass guarantee which allows you to sit the next MCS Elite Course we host completely free of charge.

I’m an All Access member. How is this different to the standard MCS course I already have access to? (MCS Elite)

With the standard course, you cannot avail of the six 2-hour-long live workshop sessions with your tutor; the private Elite student study group (hosted by Circle and moderated by your tutor); the personalised mock marking for all 5 mock exams; nor the private officer hours with your tutor. The Elite course unlocks all of this additional, personalised content to maximise your chances of passing first time.
