You may think you have exhausted all of the free resources, CIMA exam tips and help available from CIMA but you’ve probably overlooked the student webinars that are held by the CIMA learning support team and tutors.
What are Student Webinars?
You shouldn’t get the webinars confused with the CIMA syllabus content, you won’t find in-depth detail on costing models or financial instruments.
The webinars are geared around FOUR main areas.
- Exam structure
- Exam preparation and tips
- Question styles
- Common sticking points for students.
Every paper (I believe) will have a student webinar you can attend or access the pre-recorded webinar that was help.
If you are attending the webinar live you can ask the tutor specific questions on the practice exam, which is a great way to address any concerns you have.
My Experiences with Student Webinars
I watched the pre-recorded the F2 Student Webinar last week and it was held by a Kaplan learning professional who went through one of the practice exams that are available from Pearson VUE and gave plenty of tips on how to approach the exam.
It was over an hour long and contained some interesting information on the F2 exam itself that I wasn’t aware of.
For example; it explained that there are 28 questions that are “one from four multiple choice”, 13 questions with “select stated number of options” and so on. Which is very useful information for those sitting the exam for the first time.
Some of the points raised were common sense and most students would be aware of them but there are also some great insights to how the exams are structured.
It could give you an extra mark or two on exam day so I would thoroughly recommend you watch the webinar before sitting your next CIMA exam.
How to sign up for Student Webinars?
Well, you can find a list of the student webinars that have already been recorded from the CIMA website here. Meanwhile, the live student webinars that are due to be scheduled can be found here on the CIMA website.
