About the course


The BCS Business Analysis Oral Exam Preparation course prepares delegates for the final oral exam that they need to pass to achieve the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.

This is a 1-day course delivered virtually by a live instructor. You can attend from the comfort of your home while saving time and money on travelling.

To qualify for taking the BCS Business Analysis Oral Exam Preparation you first need to achieve 4 qualifications that we include in our BCS Diploma in Business Analysis Bundle.

What is included in the price?

  • Teaching by a skilled expert
  • Live recordings of the course available for 3 weeks
  • Attendance live 1-hour webinars before and after the course to keep practising (we run one webinar every month)
  • Access to all past webinar recordings

Please note: the BCS final oral exam price is not included in the course price. The price of the oral exam is £325+VAT.

About the final oral exam

The final oral exam will test the communication abilities of the candidate, their ability to apply knowledge to their own or simulated work environment.

Candidates are not expected to show their thorough knowledge of every facet of the 4 courses they’ve taken.

The oral will last for 45 minutes to an hour and will involve two examiners. It is recommended by the BCS that candidates take the final oral exam within 6 months of completing the required 4 courses. We recommend that delegates apply as soon as they have passed their last exam.

Before taking the test candidates complete a form that shows their history of working in business analysis. We will help you complete the form. This form is partially used as a basis for the questions candidates will be asked by the examiners.

What you will achieve?

By the end of the course you will:

  • Know how to answer exam questions to show your practical understanding of the theory you learnt during the 4 courses. You will walk in the interview feeling confident and knowing how to approach each question.
  • Know how to complete the form that shows your work history and will be used as a basis for the questions you get asked during the exam
  • Understand the marking scheme and what to expect during the exam
  • Know your weaknesses in time to do something about them before the exam.

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at professionals who want to take the final oral exam and have achieved the 4 qualifications required by the BCS to qualify for the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis qualification.


This is a virtual, interactive course delivered by a live instructor in real-time.

Don’t expect to just watch the screen and listen to the trainer presenting dry theory. We bring our virtual courses alive through engagement and insightful discussions. You do short exercises in teams using virtual breakout rooms where you can interact with others using shared whiteboards.  You can easily communicate with the trainer and the other delegates through voice, video, screen-sharing and online chat.

This is a 1-day course delivered over 2 virtual sessions:

  • Session 1:  9:30 – 12:30 (with 15 mins break)
  • Session 2:  13:30 – 16:30 (with 15 mins break)

You will need a computer, a microphone and a camera (optional but helpful) for an engaging course interaction.

We are running taster sessions so you can become familiar with the environment and to decide if a virtual course is for you (link to the session here).

All sessions are recorded so you can continue your learning offline.
