"I completed my first eight ACCA exams with IBAT. I passed each of these exams first time around and my average mark is 70%. The lecturers are excellent and they all really focus on exam success." - Marie Beirne

"I would recommend IBAT College Dublin for ACCA to anyone. I recently passed my three professional exams first time. The lecturers really helped me with the transition from Foundation level exams to Professional level exams. I found James O Connor's classes to be interesting and challenging. He breaks down the syllabus so its easier to understand and complete and also his real life examples give you a better idea how the theory is put into practice which helped hugely when it came to exam time." - Mathew Lambe
