The Management Case Study exam scenario AEN begins this and I saw a great tweet from CIMA_News linking a document “Helping you pass your final exam”. It’s basically a walk-through of a students answer to the SCS exam from February 2016 – variant 2.
The student’s script was a PASS mark and it goes through, step-by-step, what the student done and well and what they could have improved on. It’s a great resource that will be useful for SCS students sitting the exam this week, it might also be of interest to other students to get a feel of what is required to pass the SCS exam.
You can find the document “Helping you pass your final exam” from CIMA here.

Students who are taking the objective tests in the coming weeks and months have been given some good news by CIMA as calculators are now allowed in the exam hall – hooray!
I came across the news here on the CIMA connect site and it’s a must read for all students as only certain calculators (non-programmable) will be allowed.
Case Study Exams
The OCS exams are beginning this week so Good Luck to all those students on Operational level, meanwhile the MCS and SCS students still have a week or so left before they sit their exams. I posted some industry analysis on the February case study exams last week here – which will hopefully help you with your revision.
The CIMA Student Website
I was approached with the idea of arranging/co-ordinating CIMA students study sessions. So students can get together in the same place and have study/revision sessions -this is particularly important for students who are self studying and lack the setting and interaction of classrooms.
It’s an excellent idea that I will be looking to set-up on the website soon.
If you have any input on this, please feel free to email on thecimastudent[at]gmail[dot]com
