What our students say

  • “Very friendly, helpful... customer service was excellent... I felt like I had known the assessor for a very long time... I will refer anyone to A2B as the service cannot be compared.”

  • "I was made to feel really comfortable and at ease - something that often feels forced by such meetings, but could both relate to and trust who I was speaking with. Helpful suggestions for my help also provided."

  • "I found the whole experience with A2B great and the advice really helpful. They made me feel totally relaxed and answered all my questions clearly and with a good amount of detail. It was all a very new experience for me which they completely empathised with whilst also listening to all of my concerns. Thank you very much A2B for showing me that there is so much software out there to help me make the most of my postgrad course."

  • "A2B Assessments personally ensured that the DSA process for me was quick, easy and efficiently done. The assessor was very friendly and was willing to answer any queries I had which made the process much easier while also making me feel relaxed and willing to answer any questions; making it more like a conversation rather than an interview. The appointment was made shortly after I arranged it online - no longer than 20 mins later and I was seen 2 days later. I would thoroughly recommend A2B Assessments to anyone who is entering the DSA process."

After his studies, Ed started working as a DSA Assistive Technology Trainer before also undertaking Specialist 1:1 Support covering both Study Skills and Mentoring.
