CIMA Objective Tests

3 x 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.

CIMA Case Study Examinations

3 x 3-hour Case Study Examinations

Case Study Exams integrate the skills, techniques and knowledge, gained across the subjects covered in all three subjects. These Case Study Exams are available four times a year: Feb, May, Aug & Nov.

The role simulated in these exams covers those of an entry-level Finance Professional (Operational Level), Finance Manager (Management Level) and Senior Finance Manager (Strategic Level).  You will be provided with a simulated context, allowing you to demonstrate you have acquired the necessary knowledge, techniques and mindset for those roles.

These Case Study exams are human marked, 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.
