The latest batch of CIMA pass rates show the pass rates seem to have finally found their level.

First time OT sitters seem to struggle most with the P1 test, with just over half (52%) who passed it at the first time of asking. This compares with E1, which has an 81% first time pass rate.

At 89% the E2 OTs has the highest pass rate for first time sitters.

Meanwhile the February case study success rates also seem to be holding steady. With all the papers hovering between 57% and 61%.

CIMA’s VP examinations, Steve Flatman, told PQ magazine: “Our students continue to demonstrate strong professional skills and competencies through their performance in the February case study exams, and we are pleased with their overall good results.”

He was aware that students will now be looking at the start of the new exams, which start in November 2019. He wanted to encourage all students to access CIMA’s transitional tool, which is designed to help student transition be as seamless as possible. He explained: “The tool provides personalised advice based on individual circumstances depending on your study method, the time you have available and support level you receive from your employer.”
