Exams, self-study and limitation of preparatory classes

The CISI examinations are designed to be self-study oriented for a global audience. Candidates who register for certain exams will benefit from a wealth of resources provided by CISI. For the Corporate Finance Qualification in Indonesia, CISI provides complimentary pdf workbook and e-learning resources complimentary as part of the exam fees. 

Our preparatory class is not mandatory and is provided to supplement available material from CISI and enrich the student with insights and experience of industry professionals in Indonesia. Because of the difference in regulatory environment in which the tutors are active in (Indonesia vs UK), we encourage students to register for the exam and make use of the interactive e-learning tools to have an in-depth understanding of UK regulatory law. 

To pass the exam, the recommended self-study hours required is 80 hours per module (160 hours for corporate finance qualification). Our preparatory class's duration is circa 42% of the required self-study hours, hence we don't attempt to encompass all subjects of study. Those who participate in our preparatory class must understand and accept this limitation.
