CIMA E3 Strategic Level Objectives

The aim of CIMA paper E3, as per the 2015 syllabus, is to:

  1. Develop the skills and abilities needed by strategic leaders to direct and achieve the long-term success of their organisations.
  2. Formulate and implement strategy.
  3. Successfully lead and manage change. 
E3 Syllabus content:
A. Interacting with the organisation's environment20%
B. Evaluating strategic position and strategic options30%
C. Leading change20%
D. Implementing strategy15%
E. The role of information systems in organisational strategy15%

You will find all of the practice tests available to you within the E3 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.

CIMA E3 - MOCK EXAM (UNIQUE 60 Q)

This is a full MOCK exam consisting of 60 challenging questions that are designed to replicate the real exam. These questions were written uniquely for this exam - you will not find them in any other E3 test. The number of questions in this MOCK was chosen according to the weights of the various topics in the syllabus; you can see the exact split below. It uses the exam mode, meaning that you will see the results only after completing the test. It is time-limited, with only 90 minutes to answer the 60 questions, so you will experience the time pressure that you will be under in the real exam. On the Results Page, you will see your score broken down by part (and even subpart) of the syllabus so that you will have a clear picture of the areas you are good at and where you still need to improve. You can also view the questions and compare your answers with the correct solutions by clicking on the Review button on the Results Page.

This MOCK exam is split as follows:

  • 20% from Part A - Interacting with the Organisation's Environment - 12q
  • 30% from Part B - Evaluating Strategic Position and Strategic Options - 18q
  • 20% from Part C - Leading Change - 12q
  • 15% from Part D - Implementing Strategy - 9q
  • 15% from Part E - The Role of Information Systems in Organisational Strategy - 9q
