I’m also very thankful for the student facilities and support from CIMA such as MY CIMA (a gateway to online services for members, students and business partners), Connected (formerly called ‘Velocity’, an online student magazine) and CIMA Connect (an online platform that supports CIMA students through their studies). These facilities offer students an excellent collection of exam experiences and tremendous knowledge that is applicable in the real exam.’
