An Introduction to CIMA Gateway Case study exam - All you need to know 

In this video, we will focus on the CIMA Gateway Case study exam  Professional Qualification Syllabus Identifying knowledge gaps and the CGMA competency framework Whilst there is no set syllabus for the Gateway Case Study Exam, the application of knowledge Which you are assessed on is underpinned by the syllabus content of the 3 management level subjects E2 Project and Relationship Management, P2 Advanced Management Accounting and F2 Advanced Financial Reporting So for example in the exam, you may be tasked with providing commentary or an explanation of some financial Ratios and you'll need to have the knowledge and understanding of this topic area to enable you to apply this in the exam.

So how does the syllabus work? And what are you expected to know? And be able to do? Let's have a look at the syllabus for F2 Advanced Financial Reporting Firstly you will note that the syllabus is divided into different areas in the case of F2 3 topics Being sources of

a.  long-term finance

b.  financial reporting
c.  analysis of financial performance and position

If we look at syllabus topic cAnalysis of financial performance and position

This is subdivided into 2 lead learning outcomes which in turn are made up of several component learning outcomes. Essentially the lead learning outcomes can be seen as a summary of the component learning outcomes Each component learning outcomes starts with a verb.  Which is what you're expected to be able to do You'll need knowledge to do this so in essence So, in essence, it's the application of the knowledge you gain that we are assessing in the Gateway Case Study Exam Each component learning outcome includes a range of indicative syllabus content Containing models and theories which are a knowledge base for the subject and can be found in CIMA's official study text
