In the CIMA exam, you really DON'T want to waste time by planning too much and writing too little!
I have often spoken to CIMA students who are looking for a set plan to help with their writing. I have outlined my tried and tested plan in just eight EASY steps in my OCS study Text Part 1.
For now, however, here is just one key step that I would HIGHLY recommend you use in the CIMA exam for a successful answer...and to get that pass! Read on to find out more...
Do THIS first thing to start off your CIMA exam plan right!
It sounds surprisingly simple, but my tip is this: read the unseen information and identify the requirements.
Many students will skip this step and immediately focus on what they will be writing on instead. Please don't do this! Instead, read through carefully what you are being asked by CIMA.
Once this has been identified, break down the requirements into sub sections. Each section can then have its own heading, which will really help you to structure your answer.
What about the rest of the unseen CIMA text?
Of course, there is more to the CIMA unseen than the requirements. All of the text will be helpful, but there is one extrmely important thing to keep in mind...
Hold back on the highlighting! When you first begin the CIMA exam, make sure to skim read through the un-seen, rather than highlighting every key point that you see.
Want to find out the next steps?
To find out the next steps, there's two things you need to do...
