The CIMA exams cover two testing styles: Objective Test and Case Study exam.
The Operational Level has a 90-minute, computer-based Objective Test. Objective Tests include a range of number entry questions, short multiple-choice questions, drag and drop questions, and more. They will test all component learning outcomes you have covered within this course. This test is computer-graded, and you will receive a provisional grade of pass or fail immediately. Official results will be sent out within 48 hours.
Your exam can be taken at any Pearson Vue Test Centre around the world, with a choice of 5,000 centres.
The Operational Level will conclude with a Case Study Examination, which integrates the skills, techniques and knowledge, gained across the three subjects covered. These Case Study Exams are available four times a year: Feb, May, Aug & Nov.

These Case Study exams are marked by a tutor, and you will receive your results five weeks after the close of the Case Study window on your MY CIMA account.
