How to pass the CIMA case study

How long should your answers be in a CIMA case study exam? That is a question all students want to know, and now you have an answer!

VIVA’s Hugh Martin, a former CIMA prize-winner says when it comes to the length of answers a good benchmark for the OCS and MCS exams is a minimum of 2 pages, but ideally, 3 pages in a typical 45-minute section. This he believes would be the ideal length if you want to score well.

In the case of the SCS exam you should be aiming for a minimum of 2.5 pages, but ideally 3.5 pages plus in a typical 60-minute section. 

VIVA’s Martin has helped over 10,000 students from 94 countries prepare and pass their CIMA exams. And, with the help of fellow tutors he has compiled all the keys DOs and DON’Ts on how to pass the case study. It is a fantastic resource and you can check it out at:
