CIMA does offer exemptions.

One may be entitled to an exemption from certain exams if they are a graduate and have successfully completed a qualification at degree or postgraduate level. When granted an exemption the CIMA will charge students a fee equal to the exam fee of the applicable exam. Should the exams be taken in order? The modules must be taken in the order shown above but within a module students can choose which exams they take at each session.

The Online Classroom (OCR)


Our Online Classroom gives students all the structure of a BPP Classroom course but with all the flexibility of a distance learning programme. Recommended primarily for students already familiar with studying for CIMA exams, the OCR provides everything students may need to fully prepare for the exam. The OCR combines online course content, students studying in cohorts with online classmates as well as books and other physical study materials. The most crucial difference between the online classroom course and all other distance learning courses or products on the market is that students are assigned a specific distance learning tutor to guide, motivate students throughout their exam preparation and to answer all queries and questions. Access to the materials will begin seven days prior to the course start date. Online access will remain in place right up until the exam date of the given paper. Benefits of the OCR: Students are assigned their own named tutor they can access throughout the course. Students are part of a group of class mates (their student cohort). Students can talk online with their cohort, find out what they're learning, exchange tips, get help etc. Online benchmarking charts students can see how they're progressing in relation to the cohort. Regular interaction via online forums and updates from your tutor Focused online and physical study materials including comprehensive Classroom Recordings and BPPs Classroom course notes All supported by MyStudy, our online learning resource
