Writing CIMA For Express Entry?? Lets Meet Here! by Perra: 11:07am On Jul 31
I created this thread for those of us that need the extra CiMA qualification to count as Two or more degree and increase CRS score .


Who has written? How was it?
Can other peoole that have no background in Economics or accounting write and pass?? Atleast within 6months of studying??

I wish too go for CIMA, i studied microbiology but fear no gree me as i am afraid i have no background in it.

Copied

The exam is a 4 paper exam, Materials available on astranti.com. Exams are CBT; visit cimaglobal.com to register. Registration is 77GBP while each paper is 77GBP

Recommended procedure:
1. Register with cima on https://www.cimaglobal.com/Starting-CIMA/Starting-CIMA/Registration/ fee is 77£. Please pay online, if you pay to the Nigerian office, your registration will take weeks.

2. Send your credentials to CIMA. you'll get the email to send it after registration

3. Study for your exams with Astranti.com and Opentuition.com

4. Exam registration is 55£ per paper.. Exam is electronic, you choose a convenient time, date and center ( any pearsonVUE center).,The various centres and their addresses will appear during registration, so you can choose a center near you. DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY TO THE TEST CENTER.. You're to book for your exam atleast two days to the exam day.

5. You will get a provisional result after each exam, then details will be uploaded to your account after like 2 days.. pass mark is 100/150. There are 60 questions for 2hrs for BA1-3.. then 85 questions for BA4, 2 hrs

6. You're to write BA1 to BA4 in order to get the certificate in Business accounting which you'll evaluate with wes.

7. On how long it will take, depends on you.. you can check the syllabus and study materials to know how long it can take you to cover it.. However, it took me about 6 - 7 weeks

8. When you're done with your 4 exams, you'll wait for like two days for it to be updated...Then you can register with WES

9. Once you have gotten your WES reference No, send an email to cima to prepare your transcripts and letter of good standing.. Also tell them you want to arrange for a courier service.. This is to expedite the process because cima uses regular post which takes weeks to get to Canada.. Follow up with a call to CIMA.. I requested for mine and it was ready for pick up the following day.. Remember to put your WES reference no while booking the courier.. I paid about 65£ for the courier and it got to WES in 3days...

Only talking based on what's on the new paper and I don't think ICAN will be telling us otherwise. The best advice is for any Interested Chartered Accountant holder to make more enquiry before going ahead with the program.

Mutual Recognition Agreement. It accords certain benefits (like full membership/exemptions) on participating professional bodies that otherwise may not be available without the agreement.

No. Difficulty is relative. For your background, you may consider it difficult, but trust me, it's not impossible.

I have a colleague who completed the 4 papers in 6 weeks... her educational background played a big role though.
Re: Writing CIMA For Express Entry?? Lets Meet Here! by DexterousOne(m): 11:00pm On Jul 31
Following......



Please I have three questions

1) what is the structure of the exams?
Is it OBJ or theory or both?

2) can the four papers be written at once
And

3) how difficult will the exams be for a recently qualified chartered accountant?


Thank you

Obj.

How long are the exams?
Cert BA exams are 120 minutes long. BA1, BA2 and BA3 will each contain 60 objective test questions, while BA4 will contain 85 objective test questions.More info here

2) can the four papers be written at once

My colleague wrote two of the four exams in a day. Considering each exam is two hours long, writing the four exams at once may be difficult. I'd advise you call CIMA Nigeria for guidance.

And

3) how difficult will the exams be for a recently qualified chartered accountant?


Thank you

Should not be difficult. But then again, only you know your ability. Good luck

Thank you for the update

This seems to be a promising way of boosting my CRS score, as ICAN is not recognised
And it's cheaper for me than getting an ACCA as well...

I just hope that the exams won't be too difficult for me

If I were in your shoes, I'd not think twice about this. I mean, you are a recently qualified chartered accountant, the exams are not something you have not done before. With good preparation, you stand a very good chance at passing the exams.

There are several free online materials - videos and lecture notes. Check Ashranti and Opentuition.

All I'll say is that this is something you can learn

Think of your children's future while prepping for the exams.
And look at the exams as your ticket to a better future for them

That is what motivates me every day to see this express entry thing to the end

We can opt to pay later? How later? ...Asking for people like me that are still in the process of putting every penny in a jar until it amounts to the said money. ..... I'm still saving up for the exam.
