Assessment

The great thing with the CIMA Qualification is that it can be completed at your own pace. There are no assignments only a final exam per subject. The final exam takes place by a means of a computer based assessment (CBA) at a registered CIMA computer based exam venue (CBE), each exam is 90 minutes long and you will receive your results shortly after completing your exam.

As the exams are done via a means of a CBA these need to be arranged with a recognised CIMA CBE centre, but students need to insure that they have also completed their CIMA annual student registration and paid these fees as well as have their CIMA registration number. Please contact a SACOB student advisor for further details on this.

Upon completion of your E3, P3 and F3 assessments you can then enter to complete the Strategic Level case study exam, this is also completed by a means of a CBA, 3 hours are given to complete this and consists of both pre-seen and unseen materials, it intended to simulate real day life scenarios. Case study exams are marked by CIMA personnel and can be sat four times a year in February, May, August and November each year.

On completion of the Strategic Level you can apply for your T4 Professional Competence level. This level includes your three years of relevant practical experience (T4 Part A) and must be registered directly with CIMA through your My CIMA Account.
