CIMA publishes first set of objective test pass rates under 2015 syllabus

CIMA has announced the latest objective test pass rates*, the first set issued under the revised 2015 syllabus and the new on-demand computer-based assessment model.

Noel Tagoe, Executive Director of Education at CIMA, said: “We are hugely pleased with the number of students who have passed the tests after one or more attempt. This demonstrates the benefits of on-demand exams that allow students to progress at their own pace.

“Moreover, our students are clearly meeting the challenge set by our industry-leading, competency-based syllabus. We’re thankful for all the students who have taken tests since the new exams were introduced. I congratulate them on their results and commend them for their dedication and effort.”

The pass rates cover the objective test sittings between 1st January and 31st May 2015. In the first five months of this year, CIMA students scheduled exams in over 1,400 exam centres located in more than 700 towns and cities in 108 countries.
