     I am currently doing the CIMA Certificate level, I found out recently I could get Excemtions for all the 5 papaers.  I have 38% on my 2nd year uni for one of the moduales, but I didn't have to resit. I paasses with 2:1 degree, does this mean I will get no excemtions at all?

     Thank you

    I've got my C03 exam next week and revision is going well. The only chapter I'm struggling with is Chapter 6 - Forecasting.




    I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips? ie- break it down simply for me? or point in in the direction of some youtube videos that will help make it easier for me?

    I wanted some advice about the Certificate level. I failed the C03 Paper for the second time today. (C03 paper being the first ever paper I have studied for CIMA, was advised to do this paper first, have no previous experience in accountancy).

    I recently took my first certificate level exam, C01.  Although I passed, I was appalled that CIMA students were not allowed to use their own calculators in the exam.  This rule substantially slowed me down and I was not able to complete all the questions.

    To add to the frustration, the ACCA students taking their CBAs at the same time and in the same room as CIMA students were allowed to use their own calculators.

    I am currently going through a few questions and have come across one which I spent a lot of time on ;

    Stationary paid for during 1905 amounted to $1350. At the beginning of 1905 there were inventories of stationary on hand of $165 and an outstanding stationary for $80. At the end of 1905,there were inventories of stationary on hand of $140 and an outstanding stationary invoice $70. The stationary figure to be shown in the income statement for 1905 is?


    The answer is 1365 in the book.

    I'm currently an operational level student who is getting prepared for the November 2013 exams. But I haven't completed all of the foundation level exams yet. I'm still left with 3 subjects (C03,C04 and C05). Could you please tell me the deadline to complete all of the foundation level exams for the students who are expecting to sit for the operational level exams in November 2013?

    I'm just about to start the certificate level with C-01 Management Accounting and I want to know which books are the best to use - Kaplan, BPP or Elsevier?

    I did attempt the Business Mathematics paper a few years ago and bought the Elsevier books but didn't find them very good at all.

     Any other advice for studying these papers i.e. best way to study etc would be much appreciated.

    Hi All

    I'be looked everywhere on this site and on google but can't seem to find where to buy the iPass cds for the Certificate level exams. Failed C01 last week with 46% and passed yesterday with only 54%. Disappointed with the result as I felt comfortable with 90% of questions in the Question Bank in the BPP book. From reading posts on here, I can see that students find the iPass cds great. I'd like to have them under my belt so that I have the best chance possible.

    I'd appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Hi Everyone,


    I passed the C04 2010 syllabus studying all on my own and I attained a 1st time pass with 70%.

     I am now willing for an experimental period to offer free tution on C04 over Skype.

     PM or reply here to arrange something.

    Hi all,

    Just browsing through the CIMA website, but couldn't locate the Examiner reports for any CBA papers. Could someone please explain the reason for this or provide the link where we can find the examiner reports for the CBA subjects ? Thanks in advance.
