The Week Ahead – 27th June 2016


It’s generally a quiet time for students who are more concerned with thinking about where to go on summer holiday but there was MASSIVE news in the UK where the vote to leave to the EU went the way of the LEAVE campaign.

This will, of course, have big implications on the global financial markets as well as the economy. It’s worth keeping a close eye on developments and I’m sure you can relate a few CIMA topics to it! Here is an interesting article from The Economist on Britain and the EU: A tragic split.


Elsewhere, the case study August season will begin to rev it’s engine this week when the CIMA MCS pre-seen material is released. I posted some links last week on the OCS scenarios – Wise Choice Hotels. The usual video previews are available on the site.

For a full schedule of the exam sittings, pre-seen material release date and exam entry deadlines, please see the table below.

This week I will be posting up the materials for the MCS August case study exam, meanwhile I am sitting my F2 resit this Friday so I will be posting up my reaction and how I fared on Friday afternoon.

I’m hoping it’s a case of second time lucky and I am feeling well prepared, although slightly nervous about the time pressure in the exam. However, I plan to take this advice here from a successful objective test student. It’s well worth a read if you are also worried about how to approach the new style objective tests under the 2015 syllabus.

Good Luck and Happy Studying!
