CIMA first-timers doing even better!

26 April 2017

CIMA has released the latest batch of pass rates and for the first-time all the first-time pass rates for its OT examinations are above 50%.

The pass rate for those attempting P1 for the first-time has now risen to 50%. For P2 the pass rate is 51% and for F2 is has risen to 53%. The E2 first-time pass rate is a healthy 86%, and for E1 its 77%.

Steve Flatman, the exams chief, was pleased that all the pass rates continue to move in the right direction.

However, there was one hic-up this time around - the operational case study.

There was a big dip in the February operational case study pass rate. Recent sittings have seen pass rates well above 60%, but for February the pass rate dropped to just 45%. CIMA has looked into the drop and is happy that the marking was fair and consistent.

Finally Flatman revealed that the pass rates for the 2017 Cert BA exams will be released in July 2017.
