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.
The course prepares participants to sit the 50-minute 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).
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.
