CIMA’s latest pass rates have just been released and are currently available on its website.
Operational level stays the same from May to August, and now to November 2022 at 66%. Prior 2022, the last time the operational level was in the 60% range was in November 2019.
Management level gave a slight jump from 69% in August to 71% in November 2022. The rates continue to give the impression that MCS students are preparing and handling the case study exams well.
Strategic level jumped higher from 58% in August to 71% in November 2022. What a comeback for SCS students when the level suffered a major dip from May to August.
Gateway level maintains its low percentages at 44% in November. This rate is in line with Gateway results of sessions past. Gateway has always had low percentages, assumed to be due to the fact that Gateway students find it harder to transition into case study preparation.
The Objective Test (OT) pass rates have also been released and covers the period Nov 2021 to Nov 2022. Averages of the pass rates stay the same. The performance pillar (P) seem to still be a challenge for most students, basing on the lower percentages.
Despite the good performance shown in the pass rates, students must not become complacent about studying. Good results do not mean that the exams are any easier. I’d like to think that it’s more about students focusing and dedicating more towards their studies, thereby earning good marks for their exams.
