Audit and Assurance

Audit and Assurance (AA)

Our AA tuition is extremely exam focused and once a topic has been taught, we will develop your exam technique by teaching you the most effective way to answer exam questions on that topic. The learning strategies and exam techniques you will be taught are those which enabled your tutor to score 86% and win a prize from the ICAEW for his performance in AA. This tuition approach has resulted in several of our students also winning prizes.


"The tips I got from the 'risks and procedures' were really useful and undoubtedly would have helped to get me more marks in the real exam. For example, the general risk and procedures to address is something I was completely unaware of. Also, the tutorial gave me a bit more confidence. College had told me it was difficult to nail the question whereas you demonstrated it was very possible to get maximum marks."

Gerrard (AA student who scored 93%)

I passed AA with 87% and FAR with 76% using Kieran's resources! The course notes were helpful in breaking down the course, and Kieran's teaching style is a no nonsense one which quickly gets to the issue at hand.

Brian (AA student who passed first time with us)

"I have been using the online masterclasses for my Professional Level exams and so far I have passed first time with all scores >80 thanks to the quick concise but focussed technique covered in the masterclasses. The methods used are much easier to understand and therefore apply to the exam where the examiner is testing your understanding rather than how to write out a proforma for example. I'd highly recommend ACA Masters and feel confident in my next set of ACA exams using their tuition."

Lewis (AA student who passed first time with us)

"The tuition for AA was very focused on exam technique which was the crucial mistake I was making in my previous sittings; Kieran was able to break down exam answers very logically and taught a fool proof plan for answering any question that came up. Looking at past papers was very useful and was helpful to see how you would answer the questions and your thought process behind each sentence written.


The exam tips were invaluable – the pro-forma answers stuck with me throughout the exam and were easy to understand and apply.


I will be booking with you for the rest of my exams (in the hope of some first time passes!) and would definitely recommend your online tuition to anyone else requiring that extra push to get through! Not sure I would have gotten through the third time had I not booked with you haha! Thank you so much!"

Pawandeep (AA resit student who passed first time with us)

"Got super excited today when I got my AA results, all thanx to Kieran's tips. I was always struggling to finish the exam and ended up getting 48 in June 2020 sitting then 52 in September because I would leave 20 marks questions not attempted . This was very stressful, but the exam tips, time management and how to write what really matters skills I acquired from Kieran's videos saved my life, literally! Thank you so much ACA Master tutors."

Jennifer (AA resit student who passed first time with us)

"ACA Masters prepare wonderful notes & video lectures regarding FAR, FM & AA. Those notes and lectures helped me a lot. I passed FAR & AA only just to follow Kieran’s exam technique. So I highly recommend ACA Masters exam content."

Iqbal (AA student who passed first time with us)

"Excellent learning materials, used for the Professional Level Audit and Assurance paper in September 2020 and got a 1st time pass. Now using for my next professional level exams (TC & BST). In my opinion they are very good value."

Kieran Brown (AA student who passed first time with us)

"Just wanted to email and say thank you, when I came to you I had failed BPT and AA twice each and now I have passed both first attempt with you."

Courtney (AA student who passed first time with us)

"I passed AA with 62 marks. Thanks for your support. Your strategy is really helpful and easy to apply in the exam."

AA Video Course

(2021 Version)

To get you through your AA exam with top marks, our prize-winning Senior ACA Tutor Kieran Doe has recorded a video course.

Each class focuses on a frequently examined topic and explains the key technical concepts in a simplified way, before demonstrating the optimal exam technique by working through recent past exam questions in full. You will be taught the most efficient way to read, interpret and analyse the exam paper and most importantly, the specific technique you should use when typing your answer. This includes practical advice on how to make effective use of your open book when answering questions.

Having understood the technical content and exactly how you should be approaching a particular type of AA exam question, you can then go and attempt similar past exam questions to put these prize-winning exam technique skills to the test and watch your marks drastically improve - hopefully you will join our growing list of prize winners! Our AA Master Plan (see below) categorises all the past exam questions by topic to make it easy for you to practice similar questions after each class. This enables you to conquer AA by mastering one area at a time.

The course is structured so that it covers each examinable area and each type of AA exam question.

Study Materials

(2021 Version)

Our prize-winning ACA tutor, Kieran Doe, has developed our unique AA Study Materials which include learning notes, master plans and exam technique guidance. 

AA Learning Notes

Our AA Learning Notes concisely summarise the essential knowledge you need to pass the exam. This enables you to focus on the essential content for each topic and then test yourself by reproducing the condensed content on a blank page. This will force you to actively recall the information so that it is embedded in your brain ready to use for exam questions.

The notes include:​​

  • A list of audit risks and procedures for each account

  • Easy-to-use summarised technical notes for each topic

  • Reminders of key points to include in your answer

A small sample is included at the bottom of this page. 

AA Master Plan

To ensure that you use your study time as effectively as possible, we have broken the syllabus down into examinable topics so that you can allocate your time to specific examinable topics. For each topic, we have listed the recent past exam questions which examined the topic. There is also a reference to how frequently the topic is examined, the extent to which it is examined and the AA video class which demonstrates the exact exam technique to use for that type of question.

Exam Technique Guidance

We have included exam technique guidance for each type of AA question. This contains detailed advice on how you should approach each exam question in order to score top marks.
