CIMA Dates & Deadlines

Whether you’re a student preparing for exams, a professional planning to start studying CIMA/CGMA, or an employer supporting your staff’s CIMA/CGMA journey, this guide aims to provide you with up-to-date information on exam registration deadlines, exam dates, course dates, and other important milestones.

CIMA students will be familiar with the complexities of the CIMA calendar. After Certificate level, there are 3 Objective Test (OT) exams at each level, followed by a Case Study Exam, each with its own deadlines at key points in the exam sitting cycle. A missed course start date or exam entry deadline can throw even the most meticulously planned study schedule off track.  Use this guide to stay on track towards achieving your goals, plan ahead and keep up to date with important deadlines.


Objective Tests (OT’s)

📅Course start dates: All year round!

Unlike Case Study exams, exams for Objective Test modules do not follow an exam sitting cycle. Therefore, you can book ObjectiveTest exams at various dates all year round. Likewise, you’ll find that FI courses for Objective Test exams start all year round, online and in local study centres. You can also study on-demand via FI Online. Planning and preparation are key to getting the result you want on the big day. Find tips on preparing for your exam below:
