"I set up CASC Master as during my own revision I wished there was a good value personalised course, which cares about the needs of the individual.
I also felt some up to date, exam specific, high quality videos would be really helpful hence I have created a video resource bank for others to benefit from.
At CASC Master our ethos is to provide a high quality, individual, personalised service to meet your specific needs. Whether it's your first or last attempt at sitting the CASC we look forward to supporting you and giving you the power to succeed!"
