Sitting your CIMA exams online – now the norm

From early May CIMA began the delivery of its first-ever at-home OT exams.

Students in over 70 countries have now booked to sit the exams remotely, and students in over 40 countries had now sat exams by the middle of May. We can report all is ‘going well’, but you don’t have to believe us. This is what some of CIMA’s students said…

CIMA PQ and Civil Service fast Steam Graduate, Matthew Barton, explained: “I was feeling rather nervous about sitting my exam, especially under new and unfamiliar conditions. But, once I clicked ‘begin exam’ button the process was very smooth, it’s close enough to the test centre experience so it’s not worth delaying your studies until they can reopen

Siemens, CIMA PQ Dan Ralls, said: “On the whole, the experience was fairly good and the online invigilator was very easy to contact to ease some of my concerns. I didn’t feel disadvantaged by sitting my exam at home and I’m really pleased to be able to continue with my studies to hot the targets I had set myself.”
