Just when you thought CIMA pass rates couldn’t get any better the latest set of results come in!

The November case study results for operational and strategic are both up on the August pass rates. The strategic case study success rate this time around was a healthy 65%. That’s much better than May 2016’s 45% pass rate.

CIMA’s Steve Flatman explained students are definitely getting better at the case study, and this will be a translated to better management accountants at work. 
The pass rates for the OTs during 2016 are also holding up well. Even P1 and P2 are becoming less of a hurdle, but their pass rates are still much lower then the likes of E1 and F1.

The paper with the highest first time pass rate is E2 at 86% followed by F1 with 77%.
Flatman said the OT pass rates show that more students are now able to take exams when ready.

CIMA has promised to keep publishing updated OT pass rates every quarter in conjunction with the case study pass rates.
