The purpose of the student tool
This tool will give you an overview of the CIMA Code of Ethics, the importance of ethics in the workplace, and how ethical considerations may appear in the CIMA exams.
The material in this tool draws from past exams, practice tests and information in the Code. The tool also refers you to other sources of information on the CIMA website and elsewhere, to deepen your learning and understanding.
Applying ethical considerations to many aspects of the CIMA exams not only shows that you are able to act professionally but also awards marks. The tool will help your further understanding of applying an ethical framework - in relation to your working life as well as in your CIMA studies.
This tool is produced to assist students’ understanding of professional ethics in exams and in their working lives. The Student Ethics Support Tool is not a substitute for CIMA study texts, but a support to your studies, and an introduction to relevant initiatives, organisations and other sources of information. CIMA study texts remain the key support to your learning for exams.
In case you need to know before you use any of the ethics tools, we don’t access any information that could be used to identify you. As a result, we can’t share it either! Nor do we retain any information about your answers or scores.
