Exam blueprints

2019 CIMA Professional Qualification

In an industry first, we will provide you with examination blueprints which will take the mystery out of our examinations process and clearly articulate what will be assessed in your exams.

The examination blueprints are based on the syllabus and set out in detail what is examinable in each of the nine Objective Tests and three Case Study examinations. The Blueprints are published annually, and provide information about the format, structure and weightings of the assessments. 

The blueprints will only be applicable to exams scheduled under the 2019 Professional Qualification.
