BCS BA Diploma Oral Revision Day

This workshop is designed to help candidates prepare for the oral examination by revising the various modules they have taken and by showing them what the examiners will be seeking and how to approach the examination.

Success in the Oral Examination leads to the award of the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

[Previously known as the ISEB Diploma in Business Analysis]

We advise delegates to book onto this course a couple of weeks before the real oral event.

Select specific date to see price, venue and full details.

Learning Objectives

The course prepares participants to sit the BCS oral examination leading to the completion of the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis


A valid combination of four 4 Certificates (2 core and 2 specialisms).

BA Diploma Bundles

Delegates should aim to sit the oral exam within 1 year of sitting their last module. However, this is not set in stone. We do suggest if candidates leave too long a gap to either sit another module or attend a refresher workshop. 

Course Content

To complete their BCS Business Analysis Diploma, candidates must attend a 50-minute interview with two BCS oral examiners. The examiners’ task is to find out if the candidates can put all of the techniques they have learned through their modular examinations into an overall context and whether they have the analytical and interpersonal skills to be awarded the Diploma

The workshop is a loosely structured day with an interactive style, which will cover the following topics. The focus will be on 'oral style' questions and answers, covering the content of the BA Oral Examination syllabus.

  • Introductions and overview of the workshop
  • Main features of the Oral Examination - process and content
  • Review of BCS guidelines for the Oral Examination
  • Review of the Oral Examination Syllabus - mandatory topics
  • Review of the Knowledge based specialism subjects applicable to the delegates in the workshop
  • Review of the Practitioner specialism subjects applicable to the delegates in the workshop

Exams & Certification

Prepares delegates for the BCS Business Analysis Diploma -  oral examination

[NB the exam does not form part of this workshop]

From July 2019 BA Oral Exams will be conducted online via Skype. This is great news for delegates as you will now not be out of the office for a full day, just for a 45 minute exam.


Delegates should review their written examination course notes before attending this event.

Also, it is highly desirable that delegates obtain and review the BCS publication 'Business Analysis' by Debra Paul et al prior to attending the course.
