ITC Autumn 2021 Exam Course
Tabaldi's online tuition support course for the SAICA Autumn 2021 ITC board exams. If you are writing later than that, go here. Around 70% of the last few ITC exams have been discussion-type questions. We know that students struggle to get marks for their knowledge in these areas so our course focusses on how to structure and plan these discussion questions and how to improve your communication skills to earn those marks.
Our online ITC Exam Course includes:
- 8 tasks, each of which includes a past ITC question that you'll do, mark and submit to us to get feedback from us on your methodology, structure, approach, marking, and what you should focus on
- Practical advice on how to improve your communication, application, and the structure of your thinking and answers
- Study coaching advice
- Lecture videos and tutorials covering the full CTA syllabus
- 2 SIM tests with personalised feedback

WHY SHOULD YOU STUDY THIS WITH US?
Most ITC courses focus on revising your knowledge. While we realise this is important, we also recognise that what students struggle with more, is the application and communication of whatever knowledge they have! Students need help practicing how to answer discussion questions, how to work with longer case studies and how to mark and analyse their own attempts.
This is highlighted in SAICA’s 2020 ITC Examiner’s Comments: “A serious problem experienced throughout the examination was that candidates were unable to apply their knowledge to the scenarios."
Tabaldi's tuition support courses and, in particular, lecturer support are second to none. Our ITC course gives you a lot of practice with questions and we will be there to provide feedback every step of the way. This will include case study planning and 2 SIM test papers. We also know that the subject matter is only half the battle - your mindset and study approach is vital so we have included study coaching materials.
Your course will include:
We have joined forces with Yvonne Starkey to bring you invaluable study coaching lessons and support. Yvonne, a co-founder of Tabaldi, has years of teaching experience and knows what CTA and ITC students typically struggle with and, you'll be glad to hear, knows how to tackle those issues.
We recognise that today's world doesn't leave you a lot of time for study. How do you make sure you are getting the best of your valuable study time? This course helps you understand the challenges you face, and provide practical advice on how to address these issues, in order for you to pass ITC. We are there to support but we will also be there to challenge you.
COMMUNICATION AND APPLICATION
LECTURE VIDEOS AND TUTORIALS FOR THE ENTIRE CTA CURRICULUM
Our methodology means that you should be going back to theory less and less. However, sometimes it is necessary to go over some theory again so we have included all of our detailed CTA tuition support courses. The subjects have been indexed so it is easy for you to quickly jump to the specific topics you need.
The videos are all short (typically 10 minutes or less) so it's easy to squeeze in some revision in spare moments throughout the day. The great thing about video is that you can pause, rewind and rewatch to make sure you have taken everything on board.
MARKED SIMULATED EXAMS
Closer to the exams, our lecturers will mark 2 simulated ITC test papers for you. The previous questions will have prepared you very well for the sim tests and, at this point, it's a matter of practicing exam writing as the final exam approaches. The lecturers will give feedback which will ensure you are focussing on the correct areas before sitting the exam.
Our lecturers are available on our discussion forums to answer your queries, motivate you, and check up on you! Sometimes though, it's just nice to be able to chat to other like-minded individuals who are going through the same as you are!

CIMA to SAICA ITC
We regularly get queries from CIMA qualified professionals that want to transition to CA (SA) by taking advantage of the SAICA-CIMA Membership Pathway Agreement (MPA).
CGMA’s are now able to write the SAICA ITC Exam without passing CTA first. The problem is that the CIMA and SAICA ITC exams differ significantly. As a result, the majority of candidates fail their first attempt and abandon the dream thereafter.
This begs the question: “Should you first do CTA and then attempt the ITC?”
That is definitely one way of doing it, but we’ve got an even better solution for you. Our ITC Exam Course focuses on the skills you require in order to answer ITC exam questions and score maximum marks. In our ITC Exam Course you get to practice many actual past ITC questions and submit it for personalised feedback form the team of qualifies CA’s (SA). You will also get the opportunity to write two 100 mark simulated exams (past ITC papers) for feedback.
In order to address the large syllabus gap between CIMA and SAICA, we also include all of our CTA video lectures. Candidates can work through the lectures at their own pace and ask for assistance from our qualified and experienced lecturers. This means you do not have to first spend a year doing CTA at a tertiary institution before enrolling for an ITC Board Course.
If you only plan to write the ITC in 2022, you are still encouraged to enrol for the 2021 Tabaldi ITC Exam Course now to get an early start. Your access will be valid until you’ve written your ITC exam, so there is no need to re-enrol. We will also schedule your simulated exams to fit with your planned ITC Exam date.
If you need more information on the course or just some helpful advice from a lecturer, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
This course is for April 2021 Exams only. If you are writing later than that, please go here.
