Hi,

Does anyone know how long exams r taking? I sat mine on 3rd July it's my last exam I failed it a year ago and def sure I've failed again as I revised so much but half the questions that came up I had never seen before!! I was so confident going into exam but so disheartened when I came out!!
Does anyone recommend me booking a new exam for the 6 week time after my result is posted as I want to get it over with so I can start CIMA.:-(( the wait is so agonising!!

Thanks in advance!!

    Hi
    It can take up to 6 weeks for your result to be posted.

    I think you'll be better off waiting. Hopefully, you'd have passed.

    3rd July! You have a little while yet Sammy, I took my FNST on 10th June and am hoping to hear late this week early next.
    Also I dont think you can book the same exam while your waiting for some results, there is a post on it somewhere, if you took another one and the first one came back a competent and the second didnt where would you stand.
    Fingers crossed for you :)

    Thank u!! I hope u pass too ;-) I know I have ages to wait. Probably another 4 weeks I would have thought. I have has some results back at 3 weeks 5 days!! Would be nice if was same for last result. I wasn't going to retake exam till my results were published, but was going to book exam for after result comes through so I don't have to wait 4/5 weeks to retake!! But still going to keep studying now until I get the result so it's stil fresh in my mind :-)

    I did think that was the case!! It's just annoying the waiting when I want to register with CIMA ASAP and start studying but can't until I get this result back incase I've failed and have to retake!:-/

    Unfortunately, I don't think you can do this. Sorry. However, if you can, and you subsequently pass, won't you have to forfeit the exam fee? There have been other discussions regarding this.

    I took Budgeting (my last exam) 4th July, so keep me posted when you receive your result as mine should hopefully be the next day!

    my financial performance exam took 5 weeks to the day to come through.

    Although we're also waiting for our last two exam results, FNST & FNPF, (taken 20th & 27th June) one of my friends started her CIMA today through Kaplan. They told her she didn't need to wait for the results and could resit if necessary through them.

    Don't know how you were planning on studying CIMA but if you don't need all your results it could be worth registering whenever you want. Good luck - hate all this waiting for results!

    Hi

    Thanks for that sulew17. I didn't know you could start it without the results from AAT. I guess you just can't claim exemptions. I'm so excited to start CIMA I'm just fed up of waiting for results. I'm going to do it self study like I did AAT 3&4. I will buy the books now I may aswel start studying now rather than later!!

    Hi Sammy,

    We had CIMA in at work last week, and I asked them near enough the same thing. New student Registration for the May 2014 sittings needs to be done before 31st January 2014, and my final result will be due around that time. (College have us sitting FNPF the week before xmas) and I said that I didnt know if my result would be in before that deadline.

    They went away, and sent me an e-mail stating:



    I mentioned that we have a very good relationship with AAT which means we offer a genuine ‘fast-track’ route to AAT students. We prioritise the awarding of their exemptions over any other students, we don’t do this for anyone else!Any new student can expect their exemptions in 3 days. We normally advertise 20 days.

    Please see link:

    http://www.cimaglobal.com/Study-with-us/Entry-routes/Im-a-member-of-another-professional-body/AAT-Level-4-Diploma-in-Accounting-QCF/

    This has replaced the system where we can receive you results and give you exemptions without transcripts, but this works just as well.

    If you register next January you will have till the end of February to enter exams, the exam entry is open in March but there is a late entry cost. Saying that you should get your results/transcripts and certificates in plenty of time.


    So starting before you results are in shouldn't be an issue, just make sure you register as a student member before their cut off date.. which I am guessing is 31st July for November Exams?
