THe CTA / PGDA course that builds your skills to improve your studying and exams

Struggling with Application; Communication; Problem-solving; Structuring your Answers?

I’ve got you!

And… I’ll give you individual feedback on questions you submit

What do CTA / PGDA students struggle with?

You will ALWAYS feel like you need more subject knowledge… and of COURSE there’s a lot that you need to work on… BUT…

You don’t have the TIME to do ALL the studying that you want. You’re ALWAYS behind on the syllabus, and you never really GET to all the questions you know you should be doing.

You also know that just because you ‘know’ something, doesn’t mean you get all the marks that you could for a question. There’s ‘something else’ that costs you marks. 

You struggle with:

  • Application,
  • Communication (eg: discussion questions,
  • Reading the question,
  • Getting everything you need from the case study,
  • Time management,
  • Making sure you give them all the stuff they want in the solution.

These things are NOT automatically fixed when your knowledge improves… you need to work on them WITH your knowledge. 

This is where I come in!

I'll teach you the skills you need to turn your knowledge into marks

I'll show how to improve your application, communication, and structuring your answers

What are the Skills?

Wouldn’t it be seriously useful to KNOW whether you need revision on a section? I’ll give you a tool to calculate this, so you KNOW that you’re working on the right stuff when you’re studying

I’ll show you how to plan and index your case study to make the most of your time, and get the most out of your information in the reading time

Most students lose about 10% of their marks because of misreading the question in some way. If we can reduce that, your marks will improve. So, I’ll give you a tool to prevent the misreading!

I’ll show you how to structure your discussion questions to cover all the elements required. I’ll give you techniques to improve the marks you get in your discussion questions (because you KNOW that you have more knowledge than you get marks for!)

Your focus HAS to be on passing that exam… which means getting 50% of the marks. How do we make sure that you’re focussed on this while you’re answering those questions? I’ll help you

How do you know what to cover? What to leave out? The level of detail to cover for different parts of the question? Learning to structure and plan your answer will massively improve your marks. You’ve heard your lecturers tell you repeatedly to ‘plan your answers’… now I’ll show you HOW to do this!

We need to assess and improve our own application and communication. It’s a lot easier when someone else reads our stuff, but we need to do and mark our own questions… I’ll give you tool to help identify what to fix and how.

Exams, and studying, is stressful. We lose a lot of marks due to panic, stress and the ‘fight / flight / freeze’ reaction. It changes the way we think, and we rush instead of calmly approach the questions the way we normally would. Having the skill of calming down on demand will improve our marks, and decrease anxiety


Yeah, I know this seems pricey. The reason for this is that I go through YOUR attempts and give you individual feedback. With at least FIVE question submissions, I spend a lot of hours on EACH student. Add individual emails, sometimes one-on-one sessions, additional marking and feedback… and it adds up to a lot of one-on-one time I spend per student. This costs me a lot more than just giving notes, on-demand videos and a file of questions. 

You also have access to the CTA syllabus, a few live sessions, and all the Skill tools, strategy and mindset tools. 

It’s an on-demand course, which means that you move at your own pace, and work at your speed. There are some live sessions, but most of the content is available for you to get started on as soon as you register.


I give you step-by-step tools to change the very next question you do. You will SEE the improvement in your questions really quickly.

The skills will take time to practice, because it may be different to what you’ve done, but every time you practice, you’ll see bits of improvement. 

The course includes access to the Tabaldi CTA Revision courses. These are designed as revision courses, and while they are great for those who have attempted CTA before, I don’t think they’ll be enough for you if this is your first attempt.

If you want to remove this content (because you have classes elsewhere, or you don’t require it), simply use this coupon code when you register: nosubject 

This will give you a 30% discount on your price.

You can pay by credit card. 

I offer monthly instalments, but please note that the instalment months decrease, and the amounts increase, the closer we get to exams. 


Repeat students are generally more aware that they need ‘something more’ in order to pass. 

First-time students generally think that the theory is ‘enough’, and will mostly find me closer to the exams when they realise that they can’t seem to GET ‘enough’ of the theory.


I want at least 3 months to help you build great study and exam skills. 

I’ll work with you until the exams, but most of our work will be done in the first 3 months


I have a +70% pass rate for students that complete the course. 

Most of our students are UNISA students, and a lot of those are repeat students.

This will also give you fabulous preparation for ITC

You might sign up for this and feel like it “won’t work” for you… why would this be?

First… to start with, you may feel that in order to get better marks in a subject, we need to be talking about THAT topic. (ie: I need better marks in Accounting, so please teach me more Accounting). – Some students refuse to listen to ANYTHING that’s not directly subject-related… and so they never realise that ‘stuff’ outside your topics, will impact how you perform IN those topics. Like stress, for example… you could know your work perfectly… but stress will decrease your marks. 

Second… we all sign up for gym contracts and then don’t go. We can’t get a six-pack if we’re not actually IN the gym, working out. I can give you tools… but YOU have to actually apply and use them

Third… You disengage when things go wrong – The stuff I say all sounds good and logical… and you listen and lean in… and then something goes wrong… and you feel like I’ve lied to you, it’s not going to work, you’re not smart enough, you’re not quite in agreement with something I advise, or it just feels WAY easier to go back to what you’ve always done… and instead of reaching out and saying… “THIS ISN’T WORKING… HELP ME!”… you go quiet, disengage and stop looking at stuff. 

I’ll put as much into your studying as you will. If you do the work, you WILL see the results.

The feedback I give you on each task will help guide your future studying. If I see other ‘stuff’ that you seem to be struggling with, I’ll advise you on that as well. 

NOTE: I put in as much as you do. If you wait until the last minute before working on stuff, I can’t help you very much. If you’re not doing tasks but wanting extra help, the only advice you’ll hear from us is “Go do the tasks so we can see what’s getting in the way of your marks”… THEN we’ll talk about what else you need.
