Read What Our Students Say
REINHARD DUTTER F7 ACCA – 3rd Place in Ireland
DBS has a very good reputation for exam success. Its lecturers and the format of the lectures made
me choose DBS. I would definitely recommend DBS as it significantly enhances the probability of
passing the exam by focusing on the exam from the very first day. The lecturers are very engaged
and take a personal interest in you to make sure you pass the exam. QBR is one of the key success
factors for me as it provides instantaneous feedback and provides the opportunity to fine-tune exam
technique and time management in an exam-like situation.
Reinhard is currently working as a Controlling Manager with Volkswagen Group Ireland
RICHARD GIBSON P3 ACCA – Joint 1st in Ireland, Joint 3rd in the world
I wanted to study with a Platinum-Approved learning provider whose lecturers have a strong
performance record in helping students achieve top-marks. Having examined the options available,
I was confident that DBS could deliver what I wanted. I was aware that DBS provides excellent study
materials and the option to obtain discounts on tuition packages won me over. Yes I would recommend
DBS to anyone wishing to study for the ACCA exams. There is no doubt that the lectures are experts
in their field. The lecturers can’t learn the material for you, but they can provide you with the tools and
techniques to study efficiently and perform effectively in the exams. The lecturers at DBS explain very
clearly from the outset the standard of answer that is required at the professional level and the examtechniques that contribute to effective performance on the day. The quality of service and standard
of communication from the administration staff at DBS is very high. Once I had committed to DBS,
I found out how important this can be. Members of staff are always willing to assist and you get the
real sense that they are genuinely invested in you as a student.
Richard is currently working as an Internal Auditor with Donegal County Council
AISYAH BINTI AHMAD ACCA P2 Corporate Reporting – 1st Place in Ireland, 10th worldwide December 2013
The course at DBS is delivered to meet the ACCA exam standards, complimented by the learning
materials provided by Kaplan. The experienced and qualified lecturers are able to provide the
academic support needed to pass the exams. I would recommend DBS because the questions
are taught in a way that you can answer to meet the examiners’ requirements in order to gain most
marks ensuring a pass. QBR sessions have been most helpful especially when the experienced
examiners were able to provide prompt feedback after each question answered under exam
conditions. Immediate improvements can be made to meet the quality that examiners seek in the
answers. All in all, enrolling in DBS was the best decision that I’ve made to pass the ACCA exams
and gaining my qualification.
Aisyah is currently working as an Audit Associate with PricewaterhouseCoopers
JOHN FINNERAN F8 ACCA – 3rd in Ireland, 11th in the world
I would recommend the QBR to anybody as it’s helpful to do extra questions under exam time
pressure and have them corrected along with feedback given to you on the same day. I took
two courses at DBS for the June 2013 exams: F6 and F8. I found the lecturers very good at
suggesting small changes to exam answers and techniques that can pick up a few extra marks.
Those extra marks are crucial, as it may only take one or two points to turn a marginal fail into
a marginal pass.
John is currently working as an Assistant Manager, Finance Department with PwC
