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.

This means:

  1. Only leaving short gaps in between studying for each subject on that level
  2. Preparing for the case study exam shortly after the final objective test
  3. 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.
