If your qualification is listed on CIMA’s web database of accredited decisions – and you qualified during the years stated and took any required modules – you will see which CIMA papers you will be exempt from. All qualifications listed on this database have been accredited by CIMA.
The appropriate exemptions are awarded based on comprehensive information provided by the awarding institution. Accreditation applications are only accepted from the awarding institution and not from individual students.
- Students are not able to apply for additional exemptions for an accredited decision.
- Accredited decisions are based on the most recently validated programme on offer by the institution and will not be backdated.
You can search the database by your educational, institutional or professional body, or by the country in which you studied.
- From 2 October 2006 any exemptions awarded for the Certificate level subjects will be from the 2006 Certificate syllabus only.
- All current accredited decisons gaining Certificate level exemptions will be transferred to the new 2006 Certificate level syllabus. All such decisions will be honoured until the end of the accreditation period.
- All current accredited decisions gaining Certificate level exemptions will be transferred to the new 2006 Certificate level syllabus. All such decisions will be honoured until the end of the accreditation period.
- Exemptions are a concession and are only awarded at the discretion of CIMA.
- CIMA strongly recommend that you wait until you have received written confirmation of your exemptions before you sign up for a CIMA study course. If you do sign up for a course before receiving this confirmation – and then learn that you are exempt from this subject – CIMA will not accept liability for any course fees. If you are expecting exemptions and it has been over 20 days since you sent your certified copies of certificates and transcripts, please email or call CIMA Contact.
- CIMA do not give exemptions beyond the Certificate level for qualifications gained 10 (or more) years prior to registering with CIMA.
