A. Our courses of ACCA and CA are taken by students all over the world i.e. more than 25 countries and 40 cities. Our prices are set keeping in view international prices. However, you’ll find them below our accounting international competitors but as we are a Pakistani organization, so for students residing in Pakistan our prices are at specially reduced rates. You may notice that our prices are not reduced for India and Bangladesh or any other comparable country but only for students residing in Pakistan as we understand paying in US Dollars is expensive for them. Moreover, it is much less than the classroom cost and they save logistics cost too. As for local price comparison, it is suggested to compare our prices with the value you receive. Our courses are of premium quality (you may visit our fb page, YouTube channel, take trial to experience our platform or better ask your friends) and maintaining it to international professional standards take heavy costs at our end.
It was a great experience with TSB, you feel as if you are in a real class during video lectures. Very qualified and professional faculty. I recommend all professional qualification students (CA, ACCA, CMA) to register with TSB.Specially in CAF-9, There is no comparison of sir SK.
The best online institute so far. Interactive teaching methods, excellent course preparation, exam focused techniques and teachers’ unique capabilities are very helpful for students. Highly recommended to anyone interested in taking CA courses online.
Lectures are recorded in such an effective way. Recordings being made in small parts so students can absorb the concept without being distracted. Moreover, the way the teacher delivers the lecture captures your attention and creates your interest in the subject. I would definitely recommend TSB to every CA finalist specifically for AARS and AAFR.
I have visited different platforms of online teaching but TSB's online platform is truly amazing. I am really impressed by the layout of its website.Sir Badami is without a doubt one of the best CA teachers I have ever seen. He makes every topic seem so easy, understandable and interesting that even a lazy student like me developed interest and started taking the lectures on a regular basis.Hats off to you Sir!
