Continuous improvements

The exam fees are increasing for the November 2014 exam sitting and in January 2015.  

The needs of students are at the heart of everything CIMA does and we continuously work hard to ensure the qualification remains competitively priced compared to other accounting bodies. In order to deliver the best student experience we are pioneering advances in exam delivery and assessment and are investing in the capabilities and infrastructure to successfully make this happen.  

The 2015 syllabus and assessment will deliver greater flexibility for students as exams are available on demand and courses can be completed online. In partnership with Pearson VUE*, we now have over 5,000 exam centres worldwide dedicated to delivering an exceptional service for students. 

The working population, school leavers and graduates are accustomed to working digitally and the updated syllabus and assessment has this requirement at its core. Our objective is to produce competent and confident management accounting professionals who can guide and lead their organisations to sustainable success.
