Testing candidates: Most Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) are open for exam delivery. We also continue to deliver exams to any third-party test centers (PVTC and PVTC Selects) with the ability to operate, though some may be operating at limited or changed capacity based on their own discretion or in response to government mandates.

CIMA Question Tutorials

CIMA Question Tutorials

Get hands-on experience of our computer-based assessments. CIMA offer two types of question tutorials to cover the objective tests and case study exams.

The question tutorials provide you with examples of the types of questions encountered in the exam. They can be used to experience the test driver and how items are presented. They give you the opportunity to explore this technology and become familiar with how the online system works.

  • The objective test question tutorials:
    • are tailored for each qualification/subject and provide examples of question types you are likely to encounter in the live exam*. Please note: these tutorials should not be viewed as a full test.
    • provide answers to the questions throughout the exam, by clicking on the ‘answer’ button at the top left of the screen.
  • The case study tutorials:
    • provide candidates with an opportunity to practice a full length case study exam.
    • should be taken using the supporting material – pre-seen, model answers, and marking guidance, see additional resources below.

*Please note there are some slight differences between the functionality of the question tutorials and the live exams; in the live exams there is no ‘navigator’ button – students can move to the next question by pressing ‘next’. Questions can be flagged for review and reviewed at the end of the exam via the review screen.
