CIMA Operational Level Course Structure

The CIMA Operational level requires you to complete three Objective Test exams subjects and a Case Study exam. You can only attempt the Case Study exam, which tests your knowledge of the level, once you have passed all three Objective Test exams. Successful completion of the tests and case study allows you to progress onto the CIMA Management level.

To pass the Objective Test exams, you will need to answer both multiple choice and objective questions, achieving at least 100 out of 150 marks. The Case Study exam involves competency based questions and requires a score of 80 out of 150.
