The aim of CIMA E1 paper is to:

  1. Cover the structure and principles underpinning the operational functions of the organisation, their efficient management and effective interaction in enabling the organisation to achieve its strategic objectives.
  2. Lay the foundation for gaining further insight into both the immediate operating environment and long-term strategic future of organisations, which are covered in E2 and E3.

You will find all of the practice tests available to you within the E1 500 Q&A package below.

There are two types of test:

  • Study mode - The first five tests cover the five parts of the syllabus. You can practise each part separately (Part A, B), or drill down to a chapter level (e.g. A1, B3). You'll get instant feedback on your answer with an explanation. This will help you to improve your syllabus coverage and enhance your knowledge.
  • Exam mode - There are also three mock exams. The unique mock is a set of 60 questions that do not appear in the study mode materials. The other two mocks, full (60q) and mini (30q), will present you with questions extracted from the study mode tests using a CIMA algorithm. This means that each time you start a full or mini mock, you will get a different set of questions. These tests should be used to improve your exam-answering technique. 

Again, the more you practise, the more you reflect on the questions you have completed and understand the reasons for incorrect answers, and the higher your chance of passing.

We've also included checkboxes to allow you to get a better overview of your progress. Tick any checkbox to show which chapters and/or parts you have completed.
