FAQs

Doubts cleared here. No confusion.

Can I pass my exams using just Learnsignal?

Chevron Down icon

Yes.  Many students use Learnsignal exclusively to pass their exams.  That said, we also find that many students use Learnsignal to cover gaps left in their studies when using other providers.

Do you offer textbooks, or do I need to buy any additional textbooks to use with your material or is your material enough?

Chevron Down icon

No, you don't need them. We provide downloadable course notes for each module and we cover the entire syllabus which is part of the subscription and the student does not have to pay separately.

What is the pass rate of Learnsignal?

Chevron Down icon

Since we have students from all over the world we don't have a single pass rate.  Being an accredited AAT learning partner means that we constantly exceed the global results of AAT students every single sitting.

What is the difference between a correction pack and mock exam?

Chevron Down icon

Correction pack - where the students can request questions of their choice to be corrected by the Tutor and get feedback.

Mock Exam- We provide the paper which student solves and submit then a tutor reverts with feedback.

Turn around time for both is - 3 Days.

Is the subscription per paper or will I get access to all the papers?
