CIMA Professional Qualification Exam Details
The CIMA exams cover two testing styles: Objective Test and Case Study exam.
The Operational Level has a 90-minute, computer-based Objective Test. Objective Tests include a range of number entry questions, short multiple-choice questions, drag and drop questions, and more. They will test all component learning outcomes you have covered within this course. This test is computer-graded, and you will receive a provisional grade of pass or fail immediately. Official results will be sent out within 48 hours. Your exam can be taken at any Pearson Vue Test Centre around the world, with a choice of 5,000 centres.
The Operational Level - The role simulated in this Case Study is that of an entry-level Finance Professional. You will be provided with a simulated context, allowing you to demonstrate you have acquired the necessary knowledge, techniques, and mindset for that role.
The Management Level - The role simulated in this Case Study is that of a Finance Manager. You will be provided with a simulated context, allowing you to demonstrate you have acquired the necessary knowledge, techniques, and mindset for that role.
The Strategic Level - The role simulated in this Case Study is that of a Senior Finance Manager. You will be provided with a simulated context, allowing you to demonstrate you have acquired the necessary knowledge, techniques, and mindset for that role.
These Case Study exams are marked by a human, and you will receive your results five weeks after the close of the Case Study window on your MY CIMA account.
There are CIMA exemptions for those who have accounting experience, completed AAT level 4 or who have already completed some CIMA training, so speak to an advisor today to discuss your specific requirement in more detail.

Once you have completed this course in full and passed the necessary exams, you can submit your practical experience to CIMA for assessing. The practical experience requirement ( PER) is a necessary part of your CIMA Qualification application process. It compliments your assessments and demonstrates your ability to apply professional knowledge and skills.
PER applications are used to determine whether you have gained enough experience to be awarded Associate membership. This would give you the Associate Chartered Management Accountant (ACMA) and Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designations.
To become a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA), you require a minimum of three years verified relevant work-based practical experience.
