CMA Exam Results: 2021 Score Release Dates

CMA exam results

Have you recently taken the CMA exam and are wondering about the CMA exam score release date for 2021? After all, candidates commonly have questions about CMA scores are released. As you probably know, most people do not take the two-part exam back to back. Therefore, you might be waiting for the results from CMA Part 1 before you take CMA Part 2.

If you have questions about the CMA scores release and the time it takes to get them, I hope this post clears them all up. Moreover, I’ll go over when to expect your CMA results, the formula for getting results, and even tips on what to do while you wait.

2021 CMA Exam Score Release Dates

You’ve taken the CMA exam or part of it, and now you’re playing the waiting game. They say that waiting is truly the hardest part. Although this may be true, you can do some value-added things while you wait on CMA score release dates. In fact, I have a list of 7 things to do while you’re waiting on results to keep your career moving. But first, let’s talk about those exam results.

So, when can you expect your CMA exam results? It’s easy to figure out.

The IMA states that scores will be released about 6 weeks from the last day of the month you took the test, plus or minus a day. For instance, the score release date for the CMA May June window would be mid-August.

Example:

  • If you take the exam on January 30, you will know the date sometime in the middle of March, or about 6 weeks after the end of January.
  • If you take the exam on January 2, your CMA exam result is released the same day as the above. Why? Well, mid-March is still 6 weeks after the end of the month you tested.

First, the IMA will email your exam results almost immediately from this date. Furthermore, your results will also appear in your personal MyIMA online portal.

Second, if you happen to fail the exam, Prometric will email you a Performance Report on behalf of the IMA. These reports are emails approximately 14 days after your results are available. In this report, you can see a breakdown of the topics and your performance in each. Therefore, this report will guide your studies as you work to re-take that exam part.

CMA Score Release: Why Such a Long Wait?

Now, I know what you are probably thinking: Why is it such a long wait? Well, the answer is related to the fact that the exam grading isn’t fully computerized. It may be one day, but for now, it’s all still done the old-fashioned way. Specifically, the essays need to be graded by humans. After all, each exam part has two sections – a section with 100 multiple-choice questions and a section with two essays. Therefore, it takes time to grade the CMA essays. Plus, the reviewers grade all papers from the same testing window at the same time to ensure fairness and consistency.

Also, extra work and checking may be required when the raw score is converted into the scaled score. At the end of the grading process, the reviewers even double-check their work for exams on the border of a passing score. So as you can see, this level of personal attention to grading the CMA exam takes time.

CMA vs other exams

For your reference, the CFA exam takes 7-8 weeks to get the results even though the first two levels are fully computerized. So all in all, six weeks for the CMA exam is about as quick as you can expect these days. Before you even take the exam, you may want to do some research into pass rates. You also need to study with a reliable study guide to ensure you pass on the first try. Check out the reviews on this site to help you choose the best study guide and materials for your needs.

Next, let’s take a look at those CMA pass rates.

CMA Exam Pass Rates: 2020 CMA Pass Rates

Taking a look at the CMA exam pass rates will give you an idea of how hard the exam is in comparison to similar tests. According to the latest percentages, the average CMA exam pass rate is 45%.

The Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA) released stats for 2018-2019 that showed a 35% pass rate for Part 1 and a 50% pass rate for Part 2. Then, the ICMA made certain changes to the CMA exam in 2020, which you can read about in this article. According to the first quarter results for 2020, the pass rates are leveling out a bit:

  • CMA Part 1 – Q1 pass rate = 45%
  • CMA Part 2 – Q2 pass rate = 45%

I will keep an eye on the new averages after the rest of the 2020 and 2021 CMA score release dates.

CMA Pass Rate vs CPA, CFA, EA

How does the CMA compare to other accounting exams? Well, the pass rates for the CMA exam are actually lower than those for other accounting exams that are often deemed more difficult, like the CPA and CFA.

Furthermore, the pass rate for the Enrolled Agent exam is 61-86%, and the EA exam has long been touted as more difficult than the CMA.

CMA Exam Results: You Need to Wait, Wait, and Wait

If you take the CMA exam in 2021, it might seem like a long time before your CMA score release date in 2021. Now that you know you’re going to be waiting on those exam results, the next best thing you CAN do is keep yourself occupied. Likewise, you can do the following while waiting for your CMA score release in 2021.

1. Spend Time with Your Family and Friends

If you have half-abandoned your dear ones during your CMA studies, now is the best time to make it up. Seriously, so many people immerse themselves in the study process for weeks and even months leading up to the exam day. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to reconnect with those close to you. Go out with friends, spend some quality time with family, or do something nice for yourself.

2. Give Yourself a Well-Deserved Break

It’s time to unwind! As I said, you’ve probably been deep in study sessions for a long time now. It’s finally time to take a break. Whether you choose to go shopping, have a spa day, or relax on a beach, do something that you truly enjoy. You can consider combining point 1 above by going for a short trip or do something fun together with family and friends. Win-win!

3. Plan Ahead for Your Next Part of the CMA Exam

If you still have another part to go after your 2021 CMA score release date, it’s time to get organized and prepared. Take a moment to learn from your experience from this past test — how can you prepare your next part more efficiently and effectively? Ask yourself:

Should I increase or decrease study hours?

How can I balance between reviewing and working on practice questions?

Incorporate your findings in your next study plan. This is a great way to make productive use of your time waiting.

Plus, think about the materials you used to study. Did you find them useful? If not, considering switching review providers before studying for your next exam part. I have reviews for some of the top courses in this article.

4. Explore How You Can Fulfill the Experience Requirement

If you are finished with both parts and are waiting for the final CMA exam results, you can print out the experience verification form. Then, consider how you can complete the work experience requirement. Since the experience requirement is a big part of getting the CMA certification, it’s never too early to start planning how you will obtain it.

You are required to provide a description of your daily work. Therefore, if your work is not directly related to accounting or financial management, you may need extra time to frame it in such a way that it counts.

5. Draft Your Promotion Request or Start Your Job Search

Ultimately, getting the CMA certification is a means to get a promotion or better career prospects. After, career mobility is a major motivation why many people get certified. Therefore, now may be a good time to revisit your career plans. If you’re going to ask for a promotion with your CMA certification in hand, start revising your resume and aim for your dream job. It’s never too soon to start planning your career path. And with the CMA exam behind you, you’re one step closer.

6. Research Another Certification?

Some of my readers pursue multiple certifications. This path is not for everyone, but it’s time to take a good look at the options. For example, the CIA or one of the IIA specialty certificates could be ideas to consider. One of our bloggers, Waqar, researched other credentials while waiting for Part 2 results.

If this applies to you, then now would be a good time to start examining your options and what you need to do to get there.

7. CMA CPE Courses

You might as well research CMA CPE courses while you’re waiting for your scores. Most people wait until after getting the CMA exam results to do this, but you could find them now and get it out of the way. To explore the CPE requirements and available courses, see a link below for help. Once you get your CMA certification, you will need to have regular CPE credits to maintain it. You can certainly start planning now when and how you will get these credits.

Next, let’s explore a reader’s question.

CMA Score Advice: Reader’s Question

“I just took Part 1, my first exam. I am not sure if I will pass. Should I wait for the results first, or start studying for Part 2? When is the best time to start studying?”

As for when to study for the next part, unless you are quite sure you failed Part 1, I encourage you to take a break for a few days for a break. Then, dive into studying for Part 2 while you wait for the first part results. This way, you don’t lose your momentum. If you are really busy with other commitments, then the waiting time is a great opportunity to clear up your to-do list and give Part 2 a fresh start.

If you have a question that isn’t answered in this post, leave me a comment or send a message so we can answer it for you. Now, let’s take a look at a video summary of the things I’ve said above.

CMA Score Release Video

CMA Score: Understanding Your CMA Exam Score Results

Waiting on the scores is one thing, but once you finally get those scores back, you need to know how to read them.

The CMA pass rate averages show us that not everyone passes on the first try. In fact, over half will need to sit for the exam a second or even a third time to pass. If this is so commonplace, why are so many people nervous waiting for the results? Well, the probable reason is that if you don’t pass, it means you fail, right? And no one likes to fail.

Except this: not passing the CMA exam isn’t exactly the same as failure.

Why do I say that? Well, the CMA exam is a criterion-referenced test, which means it is not a simple pass/fail when it comes to scoring. If the scoring confuses you, I’ll give you a basic run-down of how it all works.

How the CMA Exam Is Scored

Each part of the CMA exam has 100 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and two essays. In terms of the CMA exam grading system, around 75% of the score is allocated to the MCQs and the rest to the essays.

CMA scores range from 0 – 500, with 360 being the passing score. The panel of experts who developed the scoring formula intentionally set the bar high. Therefore, those candidates who pass will reflect positively on the profession as a whole.

However, the CMA exam is not an adaptive exam (such as the US CPA exam) and each question is supposed to be equally weighted. But still, the grading system is sophisticated enough to adjust the mark based on the difficulty of each exam. This is necessary because each set of exam questions is different for different candidates since the computerized delivery of the CMA exam.

Here is a video explaining this:

CMA Exam Passing Score: How to Get a Passing CMA Score

You need to answer at least 50% of the MCQs before you will be able to move on to the essays. However, you are not required to pass both the MCQs and the essays in order to pass the exam. All that matters is your total score. Therefore, if you struggle with the essays and get low marks but score really well on the MCQs, you can still pass the exam.

Furthermore, it’s all about earning points toward that overall goal – to show that you have the knowledge of a CMA and the skills necessary to work daily in this profession. It’s not about memorizing answers, but rather, about proving that you can apply the knowledge you have to real-life scenarios.

As mentioned above, the exam is scored based on a scale of 0-500. You need at least 360 to pass. This scale does not directly translate into a percentage like other tests you may be familiar with. For this reason, the CMA scoring can be confusing to a lot of people.

Reply
    Paul says December 13, 2017

    I graduated from a United States based university so it might be a little different. I went to the universities website and they have an online process for sending transcripts to employees, other universities, and certification agencies like the IMA. I paid a fee and they sent out those transcripts (not sure if it was mail or email). They even had the IMA on there drop down list of commonly used organizations.

    Universities send out transcripts all the time so I would assume that the University of Madras would have a process in place. If you can’t find it on their website I would give them a call. Good luck.

AnAngryBCEagle says December 12, 2017

After going through CFA exams, the CMA seems too easy.

I used Wiley for studying, spent about 70 hours for Part 1 and about 50 hours for Part 2.
Went through about 400 practice questions for part 1 and about 300 for part 2. Took 1 practice exams for each part.
I took Part one on early September and part 2 on mid October.
Passed level 1 with 440 and level 2 with 450.
I didn’t try other study materials (so I don’t have basis for comparison), but overall I don’t recommend using the Wiley material. The explanations are quite lengthy and the practice questions are not quite representative of the actual questions you would encounter during exams (the Wiley Questions are much more difficult).
Final advise, make sure to type fast for the Constructed response questions and don’t think too much, you will have less time than you think would have.

Some background info:
Engineering background, currently a MBA and MSF student of a little Ivy school.

Passed Part 2 am now a CMA (passed part 1 in June on my second attempt). Thank you Stephanie for a wonderful resource, it has been very helpful.

I am 42 and it took me 14 months to study and pass both parts of the exam. I used Gleim and watched all videos, took all tests, and made flash cards to help study. I took part 1 twice (failed with a 330 first time) and just past part 2. It took me a Total of about 550- 600 hours of study and preparation. That is probably more than what most people need; however, I have been out of school for a long time and it took me a little longer to re-master some concepts.

Good luck to all, and for those that didn’t pass, “just keep swimming!”

Got my score for part 2 today. 430/500. I only use Gleim, Traditional package, No video lectures, Study all sessions in order, do as many mocks sessions as I can. I think I answered more than 1500 questions over the course of my study, wrote more than 35 mock essays too. I think I will just stick with Gleim and go through the Gorilla grinding process again for Part 1 which I will take in May 2018. I got a discount on Gleim from your side. And your estimate score release date is spot on too (10:30am today Dec 12 – US Central time)

The last few times the results were released 42 days from the end of the exam window. 42 days is tomorrow, Tuesday December 12, they use the US Eastern Time Zone. I also believe they send out the results in batches, that means some will receive results while you may wait a few more hours for yours.

I am also waiting for results, failed part 1 in February, retook and passed in June. Sat for part 2 in October and really hoping I have passed.

I agree the waiting is the worst part, much worse than the few days leading up to actually taking the exam.

Good luck to everyone.

Hi all,

(Disclaimer: I’m typing casually, no grammar policing please =)

I share a thought about my journey. If you miss the exam by a small margin (350/360) don’t get discourage and quit. It is easy to let go with everything that is going on in our lives.

I sat for part one in Jan. 2016 (didn’t even make it to the essay section 260/500?). I didn’t study as much as I should have. Walk out devastated. Signed up for JWU for their CMA course ($1000) (I went to it 40% of the time due the redundancy of what I got from the Wiley’s Platinum Package ($1600 – never expires). Re-sat in June, life happened during the July- Aug, forgot about the exam, got passing results in Aug. Scheduled Part 2 for Fall of 2016 (didn’t even take it – forfeit the $415).

9 Months pass, a lot had happened in life, personal and career events. On 5/29/2017 decided to schedule for part 2 for June 28, 2017. A couple things happen during those 5 weeks of study time, got distracted with my hobbies (maybe 50 hours of studying). Went to the exam, felt amazing 40 minutes to spare — (fast forward) — Aug results were delays, results posted – 350/360. I took a deep breath (I needed a different method of delivery) and purchased Hocks Review (keep in mind I had Wiley’s Platinum), I watched the videos and did all of the questions 1 time and the mock exams to qualify for their guarantee (maybe 50 – 60 hours total). Anyways, sat on Sept 29, received the results today 380/500. I’m glad I can go have some fun with the CMA and soon license. The CMA/CPA made it to my buckets list.

Don’t get discourage, do what you can with what you have. Time is a constant, keep pushing, and eventually you will achieve it.

After an anxious wait, received results today for Part 1. I just barely passed! First attempt. I used primarily Gleim book/test bank, as well as some of the Wiley online intensive review/test bank.

Now on to Part 2. I plan to stick with Gleim, but not sure about supplementing with either Wiley again or perhaps Hock.

Best of to luck everyone!

Reply

    Hi SMT, it’s typically 42 days after the end of your exam month. Since it falls on a Saturday, I was guessing either Nov 10 (Friday) or Nov 13 i.e. the following Monday. Looks like it’s a bit earlier on Nov 9/10 this time 😉

    Hock is better for study material
    Gleim is better for software questions
    Then you will try to read hock material and solve solutions using gleim software

    Stephanie Ng says November 6, 2017

    Hi Sathish,
    You will need to pass both parts of the exam within 3 years (i.e. before the CMA program period expires). Within this period, you can take the exam part once in each testing window. So technically, you can take each part 9 times.

    If you haven’t already, I encourage that you check out my page for retakers: https://ipassthecmaexam.com/fail-cma-exam/

    Hope it helps! Stephanie

    Hi Natalie,

    I had the same question and just called IMA to find out about it. They said that we should receive our certification number online/via email within 1-2 weeks and then I believe they’ll automatically send us the paper certificate within a few weeks following that! So nothing further to do (assuming you already submitted your education and experience information). Congrats!

I took Part 2 on June 27th and am still waiting as well. I am with Ela, I don’t understand why all results cannot be sent out on the same day. The IMA has had 6 weeks to grade and send out scores. Everyone should get their results at the same time. If they had issues with sending out a emails, then they should have updated the website with the results. If I have not passed I wanted to use this weekend to start studying for the next sitting. Now I am wasting precious time that could be spent studying.

As far as I belong to the group of precious ones who did not receive the result yesterday and also that almost got a tendinitis in the point finger by spending the whole day refreshing pages over pages over pages every x minutes I have to confess: I´m so over frustrated by the wait and I´m even more frustrated by this split in batches between Friday and Monday!!

I can understand they have no other choice then sending out the results gradually to not overload the system, but for God sake, once you´ve start a job, finish it!! To split the badges over the weekend is soooo unfair and imo a sign of either bad organisation or laziness.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

Hi,

I attempted Part 1 in Jun 2017.

This waiting period to get the results is killing me. I can’t concentrate and i’m checking the IMA site and my email every 10 mins even though the results will be out only after 7 pm (or so my time) tomorrow.

If I fail P 1, should i retake the test first and pass it. Or move onto P 2. A couple of friends said to move onto P 2, so you get a break from P 1. What do you guys think? Stephanie would appreciate your opinion too..

Reply
    Pahlaj says August 10, 2017

    Do something else, watch a movie for this week. Watch Dunkirk or the latest season of GOT. I know the way it feels before the results and if you fail the exam it is even more agonizing. Just don’t focus on CMA for now. Focus on it exactly a week later.

    Reply
      Stephanie Ng says August 11, 2017

      Yes agree with Pahlaj. Just do something that has no relation with the CMA exam. It’s a good excuse to take a break and recharge before you work on the exam again, either for Part 1 or 2.

      It’s completely normal to get restless. That’s why you have to make the extra effort to forget about it 😉

Angela says July 27, 2017

Can you help me to interpret these results? If I got past the MCQs to the essay question, then how come I got satisfactory on the essay but unsatisfactory/marginal on the MCQ portions? My score was 330.

External Financial Reporting Decisions = U
Planning Budgeting and Forecasting = U
Performance Management = U
Cost Management = U
Internal Controls = M
Essay items = S

I’ve already signed up to retake the exam, but I am just confused by this report – it’s not terribly helpful.

Reply
    Marlon says July 29, 2017

    Hi Angela,

    I have a similar query as well but let me attempt to answer your question. Each exam is divided into 2 sections: MCQ and ESSAYS, representing 375 and 125 of the total possible score of 500 respectively. It should be noted that these are scaled scores and dependent of the difficulty of your exam when compared to other candidates who sat in the same testing window.

    In order to move on to the essays, you need to score 50% of the 90 testable questions (10 of the questions do not count and are only for the purposes of ICMA assessment to see how effective they are). Now, more specifically to your question, I think you have a point in regards to moving on to the essays should mean that your performance was either Marginal or Satisfactory because that part of the grading is not weighted / not scaled score. The scaling only occurs after you are allowed to attempt the essays. This needs to be clarified and I hope Stephanie can assist us.

    Below is my Performance Report and my queries:

    External Financial Reporting Decisions = U
    Planning Budgeting and Forecasting = U
    Performance Management = U
    Cost Management = U
    Internal Controls = U
    Essay items = U

    As you can see, the Descriptive Level is all U for every content. I cannot fathom how I received a score of 320 but received U for every area. I do not see the logic. I cannot do that poorly (U) and still score 320. Yet still, Angela received an M & S and only got 10 more marks than I did. Because even if Angela did better in the essays than I did but I did better in the MCQ, why am I not seeing an M or S in my MCQ content. I am not questioning the integrity of the grading system but now that I see another performance report from a candidate who sat in the same window as I did (May/June 2017), I have to ask some questions. Please tell me what I am missing here. Thanks.

    Reply
      Stephanie Ng says August 11, 2017

      Hello, as mentioned, getting to the essay section simply means one is getting at least 50% correct in the MCQ. 50% accuracy does not equal to the median score which is more or less “marginal” is implying. It makes sense to me because I can’t imagine people scoring 0 so the median should most likely to be higher than 50%.

      As to why one can get all U when scoring 320… remember that U is a big range. It could be that you are at the upper end of the U (i.e. almost a M) for most if not all the categories. This is good news! Keep up with the good work and you’ll get a M and above for all categories next time!

    Stephanie Ng says August 11, 2017

    Hi Angela, passing the MCQ question means that you get at least 50% correct. It doesn’t mean that you are on par or better than the median which is pretty much the definition of U/M/S category. Hope it helps! Stephanie

Marlon says July 13, 2017

    Really sorry to hear that RASHID. I know the frustration when you fail by such a small margin. Don’t lose hope.

    The one positive to take is that you failed by 10 marks. So start prep when you become a bit normal, plan wisely and make sure you improve on the things which you feel you missed upon when preparing this time around.

    Be positive and I’m sure you’ll clear next time 🙂

          I cleared CMA in 2016, fresher. Did not get single offer from any company till now. Where should I look for jobs? So, basically I am from Bangalore. Applied for a lot of jobs, but did not go beyond telephonic interview

          Hello, thanks for sharing. Getting the interviews means that your CV is good enough. The hurdle could be your phone interview skills. Please try and see if you can improve on that. Good luck! Stephanie

      That’s a pretty good score too, consistently good — that’s pretty hard to achieve. Congrats to you too Adithan!
