What’s next?

The next stage in the CIMA chartered management accounting qualification is strategic level – you only need to pass three strategic level objective tests, plus the strategic case study, to complete your CIMA exams.

Within 6 weeks from receiving the ‘pass’ result of your Management Case Study or Gateway exam, a certificate will be sent to you.

If you do not receive your certificate within a couple month from the exam result issue date, please contact us immediately and we will investigate and if necessary issue a duplicate. If you do not receive your certificate and do not contact us within six months, you will be charged GBP26 for a duplicate.

Please note that students completing the level with exemption will not be eligible for the certificate.

For more information, please email or phone CIMA contact.
