The CIMA computer based exams offer students increased flexibility with regards to when and where students write their exams. From the on-demand Objective Tests (OTs) to the quarterly Integrated Case Study (ICS) exams.
To progress through each level, students will need to complete an OT for each paper and an ICS for the level.
Objective Tests (OTs):
Each paper will be assessed by an Objective Test. This is a computer based exam which will be available on-demand. Students will be able to attempt these in any order and write whenever they are ready. Once you have attempted an OT the results will be available immediately.
More information about the OT:
• On PC
• 90 minutes long
• Marked by computer
• Short questions, including multiple-choice, multiple response, data entry, fill-in- gaps, etc.
• On demand – can be sat at any time with immediate results
• Students must complete 3 OTs at each level before they can attempt the ICS
• Pass mark is 70%
Integrated Case Study (ICS):
The Integrated Case Study combines the knowledge from each of the subjects within each respective level. Students can only attempt the ICS once they have successfully completed each OT from within the level. After completing the three OTs and ICS for a level, students can progress to the next level.
More information about the ICS:
• On PC
• Three hours long
• Marked by an examiner
• Long questions – similar to the previous written exams
