Announcements

19th August 2016 As you all may know by now, I have left BSA, but I decided to leave this page up as a reference for anyone who needs it.

I know some of you wanted the materials for the classes you did not do yet, so I put that up. Be aware though, you will not be able to follow the syllabus because it will not make sense. There were many changes made to the structure of the courses which were not yet implimented.

As always, if you need help or advice, just get in touch via email or whatsapp.

I wish you all the best.


11th January 2016 Welcome back! Please see the timetable below and get familiar with the schedule.
