CIMA Rules And New Changes : During the exam

  • Before the assessment, you will be given a short tutorial to complete which will allow you to practise submitting answers to the various question types you might see. You will also be shown how to navigate the exam and access the calculator and any maths tables that are available to you onscreen during the assessment.
  • Eating, drinking, chewing gum, smoking and making noise that creates a disturbance for other candidates are prohibited during the exam.
  • Disruptive conduct during exams will not be permitted. The exam administrator has the right to terminate the exam of any candidate whose behaviour is disruptive and to have the candidate escorted from the exam room. In such cases a full report will be made to CIMA’s Examinations and Assessment Oversight Panel.
  • To ensure a high level of security throughout your testing experience, you will be monitored at all times. Both audio and video will be recorded.
  •  If you take an unscheduled break at any time, the exam timer will not be stopped. The administrator will set your workstation to the break mode, and you will take your ID with you when you leave the room. The administrator will check your ID before you return to your seat and will then restart your exam.
  •  While you are taking an unscheduled break, you are NOT allowed access to personal items other than medication or food required at a specific time and with the approval of the test administrator. Items not permitted include but are not limited to: cellular phones, exam notes and study guides.

  • If you encounter any difficulties during the exam, for example, computer hardware or software issues, noise or other disturbances, then you must notify the invigilator immediately. If you do not do this, then CIMA may not be able to verify that such circumstances occurred and therefore accept a request for special consideration at a later date

CIMA Rules And New Changes : 

What has been the response to the new syllabus since it was launched in December?

The general feeling is that we are refreshing and making it more relevant and more differentiated. Though we have changed the names of the pillars and papers, there is a feeling of simplicity as the qualification still has the same look and feel.

CIMA Rules And New Changes : 

Operational and management level

Within each learning pillar, students are advised to sit and pass the operational level subject examination before sitting the management level subject. However, examinations from different learning pillars, at either operational or management level, may be sat concurrently. Students are recommended to sit no more than three examinations at any single diet, in order to optimise the probability of success

The pass mark for each of the operational and management level subject examinations is 50% and permanent credit is awarded for any paper in which the candidate scores 50% or more.

Students must pass all operational and management level subject examinations, in each learning pillar, before attempting the strategic level subjects.

On successful completion of all operational level subjects, students are awarded the CIMA Diploma in Management Accounting.

On successful completion of all management level subjects, students are awarded the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting.

Strategic level

When attempting the strategic level subjects, students must sit all three examination papers (one from each learning pillar – Papers E3, P3 and F3) together at the first sitting. At any subsequent examination attempts, these papers may be taken in any order and combination.

The pass mark for each of the strategic level subject examinations is 50% and permanent credit is awarded for any paper in which the candidate scores 50% or more.

Students must pass all three strategic level subject examinations before attempting the Test of Professional Competence in Management Accounting
