CIMA T4 Case Study

CIMA T4 Case Study is the final exam you need to pass to become CIMA qualified. There is no new syllabus content and any topics from earlier papers may be relevant. The exam is a case study set within a simulated business environment. The industry and business scenario is given in advance ("pre-seen" material) and you will be given additional information on the day of the exam itself. The normal requirement is to write a report, typically covering

  • identification and prioritisation of the key issues facing the business
  • explanation of the impact of the issues (financial and non-financial)
  • consideration of ethical issues or conflicts
  • recommendations for action to address the issues

Some element of financial analysis will be required and you will be expected to apply relevant business models to support your analysis and recommendations.
