Tasks you MUST do before the CIMA Strategic case study (SCS) exam




There are some key tasks you want  to do, these really could make the difference between a pass and a fail on exam day.

Here is list of 10 tasks every student should try and do if they want to pass:


1) Watch  video analysis of the CIMA SCS Examiners report + and read the report for yourself 

 The report is VITAL reading. It's the first chance we've had to really get to the heart of what the examiner is looking for. Reading the report and watching this video should help you to find out exactly what scores marks, what you should be including and what you don't need to include in your answers as well as many more key details that will be useful for anyone taking the exam.

Take a look at the videos here: 

http://www.exploreaccountancy.com/p/strategic-level-case-study-exam-scs.html


2) Spend some time ensuring you are familiar with the pre-seen analysis and industry background.

 Consider the issues that could come up in the exam and the implications for the business. Being aware of these before you get into the exam will put you at a significant advantage as you will be able to write more comprehensive solutions.

Take a look at strategic case study resources for useful analysis

Take a look at our CIMAforum to see a discussion on 'could be' issues



3) Final mock exams

Your aim should be to complete a full script with each section being well developed. This will cement the exam practise you have been doing to date, and ensure you have your time management mastered. If you have time for two or three then even better!

You can find Strategic case study mock exams here - http://www.cimamockexams.com/p/strategic-level-case-study-practice.html

4) Create a one-page summary of pre-seen facts to learn. 

(e.g. cash-flow statement, who are the people and what are the key figures). You do not want to be referring back to the pre-seen on the day of the exam as you simply do not have time, and your main focus will be on the unseen material.

 5) Ask any outstanding questions.

 Astranti  give quick answers to any Strategic Case Study students that post on the discussion boards on their website. If you have any questions that you want answering visit their website

6) On the day before the exam


A full mock is probably a little too much, particularly for those of you at work, so a mini-mock exam is perfect for this day to firmly cement your approach. If you've not done it yet - attempt Astranti free mini-mock from the Members Area. 

For free mini mock visit here  - http://goo.gl/yiSSga

7) Write and memorise some pre-learned paragraphs




This can score easy marks in the exam. You should memorise paragraphs which take a piece of theory such as a model, explain how it works and then apply it to the pre-seen.


8) Revise key theories and models.



It is vital that you learn all the key theory. You should know this by now of course, but one final review is important. Study Text Part 2 summarises what we believe is the most important theory you need to know from E3, F3 and P3

9) On the morning of the exam




 Review your key facts sheet and strategic analysis of the case pre-seen so they are fresh in your mind.


10) Attend the SCS Masterclass

Advice for CIMA Strategic case study students from the CIMA SCS examiner's report





The examiner's report for the March exam includes some really important points that everyone should be aware of.
These are the 4 key issues from the report:



1 - “The main problems were candidates failing to answer what was asked and writing everything they knew on the topic being asked about and candidates using completely irrelevant models."

2 - "There were no marks available for random models and candidates sometimes had long lists of models in their answers."

3 - "There was little evidence of knowledge of the pre-seen material which was surprising, it was as if candidates did not realize it was important."

4 - "In most of the questions it was hoped that candidates would be able to use industry knowledge and knowledge of the company to help formulate answers; there was little evidence of this.


It's clear from reading the report that the examiner wants detailed, specific and APPLIED answers.
Many student's fall into the trap of writing down everything they know on a subject and fail to answer the question that was asked.

It is vital that your answer relates directly to the question asked and you must ensure that all the theory and models that are used are relevant!

A great way to avoid this mistake is by having good plan and a structured writing approach. This will ensure the requirements of the question are fully understood.

Operational Case study May 2015 - E1 Analysis

CIMA Operational Level Case Study - May 2015 - Batton Bicycles Top 10 Likely Issues

CIMA Operational case study May 2015 - Possible scenarios


The examiner reports for the March exams have been published. My advice is to read them. There are 12 sides for 5 exams so that isn't excessive. 

Two key things to mention here:
1. Technical skills were disappointing
2. Applying P1 and F1 knowledge was weak

On that basis try to consider this possible scenario.

Jim Batton decides to open a new factory. He chooses to finance it principally through borrowing. It takes 9 months to build the factory so that it is ready to use. He starts to use the
factory two months later.
The loan he took was for 2 years. He incurred the following costs: 25 million building costs, 9 million fixtures and fittings, 1 million legal costs and the interest of 10% per year
of 20 million borrowed for 2 years.

Which costs should be included in the cost of the factory that will reported on the statement of financial position (no depreciation to be charged)?

Cannondale Bicycles Assembly Line in Bedford Pennsylvania
If the OCS examiner suggested adopting some of the mechanisation in the Batton production line are you prepared for a response?
