I happened upon PAT when I found the #Springboard+ course “ACCA Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Business”, which included 5 ACCA exams and was managed by PAT. I enrolled in September 2020 and my first course was Financial Reporting with Gerry Fahy. The quality of the course just blew my mind. Gerry is a genius teacher, he can explain the most complicated subject in the way it all makes sense and is easy to retain… in memory. He has his own unique teaching style which really works. He provides all the materials and study plan, you just need to follow it. Both Gerry and Derek provided support not only during regular classes, they went above and beyond, providing additional classes, mock exams and motivational messages and constant support in whatsapp group (which really helped me to stay on track with my self-studying). At the beginning of the course I was terrified and doubted myself, but Gerry and Derek kept saying they believed in us and they wanted us to believe as well. Thanks to them I passed FR with no issues in the first sitting. I continue my course now preparing for Audit and Assurance with Terry Lawless and again the quality of teaching is outstanding. It is also worth mentioning that the customer service in PAT is excellent. I’m happy I found PAT, there is no better place to be for an ACCA student Read more “Marta Kopinska”
I have started my ACCA journey with PAT and have to say that the level of professionalism and dedication received from everyone in PAT is outstanding. In December 2020 I successfully passed the FR paper and both GerryFahy and PAT have been there for each and every one of the students, going literally above and beyond, being very knowledgeable whilst also being motivational and supportive. Follow the ‘plan’ and the advice and you will certainly… pass! Would definitely recommend PAT for anyone considering their ACCA professional exams Read more “Victoria Cazacov”
I would Like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at PAT and especially Stephen Fennell for all the help and support getting me through the ACCA tax exam. Stephens drive and focus in delivering his lectures and revision materials was the reason that myself and other students passed the tax exam. His results he gets speak for themselves compared to the global average His exam focused questions and techniques do really prepare you for… the exam. He is there for you day or night to answer queries. I cannot stress enough how good of a lecturer Stephen is Read more “Thomas Duck”
I had a brilliant experience learning the FR module with Gerry Fahy. Initially, I had very little confidence to overcome this challenging module. However, learning from Gerry had been such a positive experience. His class had always been both fun and extremely resourceful. I am confident that anybody who follows his lectures and notes seriously is sure to pass with excellent results. Thank you Gerry and the PAT team for all your encouragement and support.
I personally want to thank PAT for your tremendous support that you gave me in the weeks up to my SBR exam.
At one stage, I was going to quit and change my career plans, but with your support, guidance & calls – I couldn’t give up.
You provided such a positive outlook and are willing to go above and beyond for me – and all the students in the group.
The… mock exams ,the additional classes on Thursdays were a great help , the WhatsApp chat group and of course the real life examples that were provided during the lectures all helped me pass my exam.
Anyone who wants to complete the ACCA exams and be successful – Go to PAT!!!
Thank you so much for believing in me! Read more “Gervas Cumiskey”
I completed and passed my 7th exam with PAT, Financial Reporting (FR), in the December 2020 remote CBE session. I just love the core ethos of PAT – “yes you can, yes you will!”. This was proclaimed passionately at least once per class by the inimitable Gerry Fahy. You cannot and must not underestimate the power of a positive attitude when tackling the ACCA exams. They are tough, but they are not impossible – yes… you can and yes you will if you follow Gerry and Derek’s methods for FR. Gerry and Derek really believed in each and every single one of my classmates’ abilities to conquer the exam, and that belief inspired the confidence that yes we could pass the exam and yes we would! Even though all classes took place online, it often felt like you were actually in the classroom such was the level of engagement with the home audience. Real life examples from industry were used to bring life and colour to the course along with a good dose of humour! I found myself actually looking forward to class – they were a little ray of light and a chance to connect with your peers in the gloomy winter evenings of lockdown. Each week we practiced numerous MCQs and there was a very strong focus on section B & C questions. We also started tackling mock exams early in the course, which in my mind was the absolute best thing. There is definitely nothing better than practicing questions under timed exam conditions. To anyone thinking of studying ACCA, stop thinking, go for it, sign up today. And if you are signing up, make sure to book in with PAT – they’re a Platinum Approved Learning Partner and having studied with them for 3 years, I can tell you that that status is well and truly deserved.

This was my first ACCA exam and I have to admit I was concerned that it would be a difficult subject to start with. From the beginning, Stephen was very encouraging to the students, engaging in suggestions of how to study and pass the exam. Stephen went above and beyond by providing additional study classes, giving excellent feedback on tests and the mock exam, supplying us with study notes in addition to the workbook and… basically being available 24/7. There is no question that he gave his students the confidence and belief that they could pass the tax exam and I would certainly be more than happy to have Stephen as a tutor in the future.

I think the timing and structure of the course was perfect, there is a lot of theory and different areas to cover in this course and I found very handy the way it was divided. Since day one Stephen was focusing on the exam and what we would need to do to pass it which is very useful too. I think he is a great teacher, very committed and he was very good transfering his… knowledge to us, which is not easy on an online class. Stephen was all about making things easier for us and all his techniques really worked. Apart from all the classes he gave us a lot of extra material, videos explaining the most difficult topics, exam questions, mock exams, reviews… It is not easy to find someone who takes teaching that seriously and works that hard to help his students. I can’t say it was an easy course as there was a lot to do in just two months but I would recommend it to anyone. The course material was very good and handy, the teacher couldn’t be better and PAT support and moodle are very good. Read more “Marta Pérez Boado”
I would like to thank everyone at PAT, but in particular my lecturers Breeda, Stephen and Marta for their incredible committment and professionalism. I’ve brilliantly passed the 3 exams in order to get the Diploma in Accounting, thanks to their incredible job during the lectures. I would also highlight their excellent online platform, which provides excellent tools to test your knowledge and in the meantime all the MOCKS to simulate the Computer Based Exam. I… couldn’t stress enough how good PAT was to drive me trough this journey.” “Marta is such an amazing lecturer. She explain everything in a very well structured way. This helped me to build confidence to pass Financial Accounting exam 30 minutes in advance with an amazing score!!! It has been a great pleasure to be your student. Thanks a million Marta Read more “Antonino Strano”
