How to Plan your CIMA Studies Wisely
With the more integrated nature of each level on the new CIMA syllabus, it’s important to plan your studies wisely.
- Only leaving short gaps in between studying for each subject on that level
- Preparing for the case study exam shortly after the final objective test
- Planning your final objective test on that level to be one of the following:
- P1 for Operational Level
- P2 for Management Level
- E3 for Strategic Level
Finishing with one of the above objective tests will mean beginning your case study exam with a task that is recently familiar to you. This will boost your confidence for the rest of the paper.
As a general rule, if you’re using a recommended tuition provider for your studies, you should be able to complete a level in 9-12 months. Clearly without this dedicated support, it is likely to take you longer to complete through self study.
