The latest batch of CIMA pass rates are in, and they are looking good!



The August case study exam results will please lots of CIMA PQs. The Strategic pass rate has jumped from 46% in May to 63% this time around (August). The management pass rate is a healthy 71%.




CIMA’s exam chief, Steve Flatman, pointed to the good news at F2. CIMA has piut in a lot of effort here and worked with its learning partners to help improve the material. He stressed that the computerisation of exams means that he is able to drill CIMA case study down into the data and really see where the help is needed. Having instant access means CIMA can react in real-time and provide instant guidance.




There has also been very slight increases in the P1 and P2 pass rates, to 43% and 45% respectively. Flatman admits he doesn’t miss the ‘terrible headlines’ about these pass rates. 


The E1 and E2 OTs continue to have the highest pass rates. E1 has a first time pass rate of 76% and E2 is even higher at 86%. 


For Flatman the pass rate story is “all about consistency, reliability and fairness”. And he believes CIMA has achieved this yet again.
