Things you must do before the Management case study (MCS) exam

CIMA MCS exam checklist

1) 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. 

 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 then even better!

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

(E.g. 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.Checkout the MCS Key topics here :- MCS Key Topics

4) 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  free mini-mock from the Management Members Area of  Astranti you can find here - when you signup for a free membership 

5) 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.

6) Revise key theory

It is vital that you learn all the key theory. You should know this by now of course, but one final review is important. 

7) 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.

8) Attend the MCS Masterclass 

 - This is a great last minute revision opportunity. See full details below.
