The global effect of coronavirus is being felt in every corner of the world and by every person, including students.

The news that test delivery is currently suspended at the Pearson VUE-owned and operated Professional Centers in many countries is not surprising. Exam delivery services will resume once it is safe to do so, (we continue to explore all options for exam delivery), but for now, CIMA students must contend with a new paradigm of studying.

The good news: You can remain productive during this time of self-isolation and social distancing. As you fill your time and remain diligent in your studies, here are six resources: 1. Exam tutorials — at the operational level, management level and strategic level — inform you of the types of questions you will encounter in the exam. 2. CIMA question tutorials are a wonderful opportunity to practice a full length 3 hour case study exam exams at operational level, management level and strategic level. 3. Learning support articles serve as your CIMA study planner, providing study advice and exam tips to help you effectively prepare. 4. The ethics check list guides you in navigating an ethical dilemma, should you face one. 5. International accounting standards describe the up-to-date standards and the relevance to each CIMA subject. 6. The examination blueprints — at the operational level, management level and strategic level — clarify what will be assessed in the objective test and case study examinations.

There’s no escaping the impact of this global health crisis, but don’t give up! You’ve worked hard and dedicated hours to your studies. We’re dedicated to you. We will ensure that you have the resources you need, even in these current disruptive times.
