CIMA Syllabus topic weightings

Each subject is divided into a number of broad CIMA syllabus topics.

A percentage weighting is shown against each CIMA syllabus topic and is intended as a guide to the proportion of study time each topic requires.

It is essential that all topics in the CIMA syllabus are studied, as all topics will be examined. The weightings do not specify the number of marks that will be allocated to topics in the examination.
