Have you ever felt like time is sometimes going too fast? Even though revision is possibly not the most exciting time of your life, time really does seem to fly by until suddenly you are waking up and it is almost the day of your CIMA exam!
With the big day approaching so fast, what kind of things should you be doing? Here are our top four tips to make stress your new best friend!
It's the night before your CIMA exam and you're nervous and unsure how to proceed. Should you stay up and try and cram in as much extra revision as possible? Should you get an early night? Should you go for a run to try and clear your mind?
We've all been there - it can be a tricky decision. Many of us end up buckling under the pressure and trying to revise as much as possible until the early hours - but time and time again studies have shown this is not the best approach. Read on to find out how you can make the most of your pre-exam evening and set yourself up for CIMA success the next day!
Revising during the
holidays can be tricky. If you celebrate Christmas, you may find
yourself reading through the CIMA pre-seen between canapés and
carols, or practising a CIMA mock exam whilst tucking into a mince
pie. But have no fear – there IS a way to study during the holidays
and get that all important pass in the New Year!
So, read on to find
out how to revise well and still keep that festive spirit!
CIMA’s Case Study marking can be tricky to get your head around. I’ve spoken to countless students who found it difficult to understand why they’d failed their case study. Often, students receive a ‘fail’ mark even when their results show they have a reasonably good understanding of all subject areas.
So, what can you make of your Case Study results? With the August Case Studies coming up, it's a good time to explore what CIMA are looking for in order to grant that allusive ‘pass’!
One thing I know is that finding out how other students have handled exams is a great way to help you build your own tailored study plan. Statistics don't lie - if lots of other students struggle to pass an exam, the likelihood is you will also need to study extra hard for it!
As we enter into the final months of 2017, now is the perfect time to look back at how students have performed with CIMA this year . The following Strategic CIMA results can show you how to tailor your own revision patterns to ensure CIMA success at Strategic level...
Trust me, signing up for an online course will mean the difference between you passing and failing your exam. When striving to succeed in a CIMA exam, going it alone without the support of an online tutor, is not a good idea - as one of our recent graduates will contest!
