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.
John Cyriac
Thank you for the support VIVA has provided. I must acknowledge two factors specifically: one, the structure and content of the course; and two, Laura, the instructor. She is simply the best, and virtually has no competition in the trade!

The Elite Course Difference

The Ultimate Case Study Preparation
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!
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.

Andrew Sherwood
I passed my OCS with a scaled score of 137 and got a letter from CIMA saying that I obtained the joint third position for the February 2019 case study and I believe that VIVA's materials really helped to make this possible.
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.
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.
Mabvuto Banda
I have passed my MCS exam on my 4th attempt but the first time using VIVA's course. The mock feedback was very informative. I will recommend you to my friends and expect me back for the Strategic level!
Christine McCann
The information provided is clearly broken down, easy to read, and the support is excellent!
Suzanne Robinson
Despite very difficult personal circumstances, with VIVA's help I managed to not only pass the SCS but to achieve my highest case study score from the 3 levels. Please keep doing what you do as it's so good!

Course FAQs

If I fail my exam, will I still have access to the VIVA course?

That depends on the plan you purchase. If you purchase a single case study course, you will have access for the duration of the relevant exam window (i.e. until the final CIMA exam date for that window). If you purchase a single objective test course, you will have 6 months of access to the course from the date of purchase. If you purchase the All Access membership, you will have access to the course (and all courses) for 12 months from the date of purchase. And don’t worry: your subscription/access will not auto-renew. You will be automatically notified when your access is due to expire, but you get to decide whether or not you would like to renew.

How is this course so cheap? I see other tuition providers charging thousands for single courses.

VIVA was born entirely online, and since day one has maintained a small team of dedicated experts. This low cost-base has allowed for relatively high investment in a streamlined online learning platform and high-quality production values. This in turn has allowed us to scale our tuition rapidly, reaching thousands of students across the world.

Our low cost-base and scaled delivery affords us the luxury of being able to charge radically lower prices for premium-grade courses than traditional, brick-and-mortar tuition providers (or online providers with bloated administration and sales teams who target and service large institutional clients).

What’s VIVA’s pass rate?

Due to GDPR restrictions, it is increasingly difficult to compile our students’ pass rates whether directly or via CIMA. However, VIVA has had consistently high pass rates over the years, and this is attested to by the fact that VIVA was awarded the prestigious Global Pass Rate Excellence Award in 2020 by CIMA itself.

Make sure to check out what students are saying about us here.

Can I download the video lessons, or view them offline?

No, the video lessons can only be viewed online on VIVA’s website and may not be downloaded due to copyright restrictions.

Does VIVA offer feedback/marking on students’ mock exam answers?

Yes. After you purchase a Case Study course or All Access membership with VIVA, you will be offered the chance to add marking services to your account. You will be able to purchase corrections for anywhere from 1 mock exam to 5 mock exams, and these can be used during any of the Case Study exam windows. Once you have 5 mock exams corrected (whether during one exam window or across several), you can repurchase corrections services as and when needed.

Case Study Elite course students have marking for 5 mock exams included as standard.

What if I don’t like the course? Is there some kind of money back guarantee?

Yes, if within 72 hours of purchasing you are not satisfied with VIVA’s course, you are entitled to claim an immediate refund - no questions asked.

I have another question that is not answered here. How can I get in touch with VIVA?

If you're still confused, just drop us an email at info@vivatuition.com, or use our live chat box (bottom right), and a member of the team will be happy to help.
