The most effective way to prepare for your Strategic Case Study

You are now in the final stage of your CIMA studies and preparing to play the role of a senior finance manager. 

At this level, you are required to demonstrate knowledge, skills and techniques that you have acquired throughout your studies from a higher perspective and be prepared to back it up by providing evidence in your answers. This is your final role play before it all becomes real, so you need to make it count! 

All you need is motivation. We have you covered from all angles here at the Academy. 

Our innovative case study materials include the following:

  • Technical Knowledge Overview
  • Full and Up to Date Preseen Analysis
  • Mock Exams
  • Case Study Tasks
  • Revision Kits
  • Video Guides
  • Personalised Tuition
  • Personalised Mock Marking

 

What is being examined

The Case Study Examination provides a simulated context which allows learners to demonstrate that they have acquired the required knowledge, skills, techniques and mindset for that role. Those five core activities are:

  1. Evaluate opportunities to add value.
  2. Implement senior management decisions.
  3. Manage performance and costs to aid value creation.
  4. Measure performance.
  5. Manage internal and external stakeholders.

Each of those core activities will have 15%-25% weight on the exam.

Examination approach
  • The examination lasts three hours. A 15-minute tutorial is available before the start of the examination to allow candidates to familiarise themselves with the test driver.
  • The examination has four sections (tasks), which are each 45-minutes long. All sections are equally weighted. Candidates may finish a section early and move on to the next but cannot return to previous sections in the time remaining.
  • There may be more than one sub-task within each section and an indication of how long to spend on each sub-task will be given to allow candidates to manage their time. If no weighting is given, then candidates should assume that the sub-tasks are equally weighted.
  • More than one core activity will normally be assessed in each section/task and the order of core activities and assessment outcomes in the blueprint does not reflect how these might be structured in the examination.
  • All core activities will be assessed in each form of the examination in line with the weightings. 
  • The examination requires constructed, written responses from candidates in the format of a range of business communications (for example, emails, memos, reports and briefing notes).

key facts
about the
SCS exam

01

Case Study tasks are not based around calculations

It’s all about explaining how financial activity can affect the business you are in.

We have everything in place to help you stay on track and improve on your writing technique so that you can keep the examiner satisfied and gain those extra marks.

02

Use technical knowledge of the theory from the F3, P3 and E3 syllabi

You must have all the key concepts mastered and have them ready to adapt into your answers. 

We have prepared a high quality revision package for this purpose, which has been used widely in helping successful students pass their SCS exam.

03

Detailed, thought-out paragraphs and not lengthy essays

Case Study exams are marked by humans after all. Write your answers in short paragraphs and keep in mind that examiners want to see quality over quantity

We have a marking service here, where you can get a mock exam assessed by our in-house expert and detailed feedback will be provided to you, so that you can improve on your answers.

04

The preseen is available 7 weeks before the exam and you should understand every aspect of it

This is crucial, because on exam day, you will be given ‘unseen’ information, which will tie in perfectly with the preseen. 


We will scrutinise the preseen and present you with clear detailed facts so that you are left with no uncertainty on exam day.

05

Slow typing speed may affect your score

You really are expected to type a lot of information in a short space of time so it's important to practise your typing speed in advance so that you don’t have any nasty surprises on exam day. 


20 words a minute should suffice as good typing speed when inputting your case study answers.
