CMA Exam Results: 2018 Score Release Dates (Plus 7 To-Dos)

Shares

CMA exam results

There is a simple formula when it comes to CMA exam results dates:

It’s 42 days from the last day of the month you took the test, plus or minus a day. Example:

  • If you take the exam on Jan 30, you will know the date sometime in the middle of March.
  • If you take the exam on Jan 2, your CMA exam result is released the same day as the above because it is 6 weeks after the end of the month you tested.

The result will be updated online in your IMA profile almost immediately. The mail will come in 2-3 weeks after that.

Why Such a Long Wait?

This is because the exam isn’t fully computerized. The essays need to be graded by humans. Also, extra work and checking may be required when the raw score is converted into the scaled score.

For your reference, the CFA exam takes 7-8 weeks to get the results even though the first two levels are fully computerized.

You Need to Wait, Wait, and Wait for the CMA Exam Results

You can do the following while waiting for the CMA exam results.

1. Spend Time with Your Family and Friends

If you have half-abandoned your dear ones during the studies, it is the best time to make it up.

2. Give Yourself a Well-Deserved Break

It’s time to unwind! Whether you choose to go crazy shopping, pay for a luxurious spa 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.

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

If you still have another part to go, 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? 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.

4. Explore How You Can Fulfill the Experience Requirement

If you are done with both parts of the exam and are waiting for the final CMA exam results, you can print out the experience verification form and see how you can complete the work experience requirement.

You are required to provide a description of your daily work. 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 your experience can be counted.

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. It may be a good time to revisit your career plans. Think about how you can ask for a promotion after you attain the CMA certification, or start drafting a good resume and aim for your dream job.

6. Research on Another Certification?

This is not for everyone, but if some of you are thinking of a dual qualification, it’s time to take a good look at the options. This is exactly what one of our bloggers, Waqar, did while waiting for Part 2 results.

7. CMA CPE Courses

Most people wait after getting the CMA exam results to do this, but if you want a complete planning you can explore the CPE requirements and available courses (see below).

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

Thy will be done. I did my best, with His help, now i just really lay it all onto HIm. God bless you for the knowledge and encouragement that you so selflessly give to us, newbies.

  • haris says:

    Any idea about date of CMA june window results announcement.

  • VM says:

    I wrote the CMA Part2 exam on the 30th of June’14 and the result is not out yet. Its been 6 weeks. Please let me know if there’s any announcement once the results are out.

    • GK says:

      Same question from me as well…have checked my mailbox a zillion times since yday. My only guess is they might announce it on Monday after the weekend. All the best to VM and Harris

      • GK says:

        Just spoke to the CSR at IMA. The results will be published not later than Friday but you can start checking your profile at the IMA website by Wednesday Eastern time 9.00 AM. So the results are probably expected on Wednesday.

  • VM says:

    The results are out 🙂 I passed both papers so I’m a CMA….

  • SeatTon says:

    Well. I am checking my score under “transcript info” on IMA site. Mine is not out yet. 🙁 You think something is wrong?

  • VM says:

    I faced the same problem last time…my result was out a day after my friends results were out…Try sending an email to IMA..

  • KS says:

    I am still awaiting scores for the Part 1 of the exam. I took it on June 30th as well. Did you email them or are you just waiting it out?

  • KS says:

    Woohooo, same!! Congrats!!

  • Arbind says:

    I appeared part 1 cma on 7th Sep 2014. Any idea by when result is expected ? Its almost 6 weeks from Sep end.

  • Arbind says:

    I passed part 1 . Result declared today.

  • GK says:

    Hello, Does anyone know when the results will be published for the October window.

  • Keith Miller says:

    I took my exam January 26th. It has been 41 days since the end of the month and still no results? Has anyone else heard back from taking it in the January testing window? Also, will they send out an email at the same time as the profile update to the IMA website? Or does one happen before the other? Also, is there a specific time of the day when scores are usually released? Thanks in advance!

  • Unnamalai says:

    Results for the Part 1 and Part 2 examinations will be emailed to participants approximately 45 days after the end of the month in which you take the exam. For example, if you take the exam in January your grade will be available approximately March 16. Grades for exams taken in February will be available approximately April 16.

  • Doruk says:

    I have taken the exam on 12th of Jan but still no score update on ima website?
    Any ideas or estimations for the release date & time?

  • Henry says:

    How did you know? Did you call them?

  • Henry says:

    If anyone gets his or her result, please the person should inform us

  • Doruk says:

    Its 2 p.m. in US, in 3 hours I am expecting an update

  • Doruk says:

    Anybody sent an e-mail to ima??

    • Keith Miller says:

      I called them last Friday and they said it would either be today or tomorrow.

      • Henryaa says:

        I wonder what’s so difficult about releasing the scores.

      • Stephanie Ng says:

        Thanks Keith. The guideline did say it’s either Friday or the following Monday (based on US time I believe) 6 weeks after the end of the month you tested.

        For January candidates, it should be mid March, i.e. either the last Friday or today.

  • Doruk says:

    Then it will be tomorrow, US time or Europe time any ideas?

  • Doruk says:

    Still no update in my profile

  • Doruk says:

    Who have seen the scores in the website? Anybody?

  • Doruk says:

    Its been 6 weeks and 2 days and I’m really sick of waiting that much. Essay part is not that difficult to grade.

  • Henry says:

    Not getting this result yet really makes me sick. It seem very unprofessional to me. I can’t wait to get it over with this guys and move on with ghe CPA.

  • Doruk says:

    I have just receive an email from ima and they are saying the results will be released on 20th of March

    • ~UNZI says:

      Are you sure? I thought they are releasing the results today… 20th March becomes 48 days

      • Henry says:

        I called, they said it should be out by the end of this week or early next week. Terrible

        • Keith Miller says:

          Absolutely ridiculous. I haven’t been able to focus for the last two weeks and now the wait is even longer.

        • Henry says:

          It is really ridiculous and unprofessional to me. The IMA guide states that the result should be out 45 days after the last day of the testing window, which is 6 weeks. Now it is taking 7 weeks, i wonder what is so difficult with grading the essay. Even if it were old women grading it, they should be done before 5 or 6 weeks. It really pisses me off and sets me back towards my preparation for other exams.

        • Samantha says:

          Did they offer any explanation as to why the results are delayed?

        • Stephanie Ng says:

          Thanks Henry. Wow they are really late this time.

  • Doruk says:

    No reasons, they’re just in a mood of this is the usual process

  • Samantha says:

    My results are out! Passed!

  • Annie says:

    I passed part 2. Passed part 1 in December.

  • Doruk says:

    I have also passed both parts, what are we gonna do know? How the certification progress works? Any ideas

  • yasin says:

    Dear SAMANTHA, ANNIE, DORUK.

    This is yasin from india. am going to write my paper 1 & paper 2 in jan & feb window 2016. Kindly guide me which book material & practice software is very useful to clear my exam in first attempt.

    • Samantha says:

      Hi Yasin,

      I am using the Wiley study material. I use the textbooks and the online question bank. I passed part 1 first time and am studying for part 2 now. The textbook is more comprehensive than the online notes so I do recommend getting it. Also I do recommend the online question bank. I found it prepared me sufficiently for the format of the exam and also lets you time yourself which is beneficial for preparing yourself for the exam. Best of luck.

    • yasin says:

      dear samantha

      thanks a lot for your reply. but, basically am from non-accounting student. its possible wiley study materila is enough to understand the concept of paper 1 & 2, because i do not know anything about accounts. ill u help me regarding this please.

      • Samantha says:

        Hi Yasin,

        I find it difficult to gauge whether the study material would give you everything you know to pass as I already have a Bachelors degree in accounting as well as 5 years experience. I do, however, suggest doing some accounting as it can only help you. Take a look through this website as it has a lot of good advice and guidance. I did find that the Wiley study material showed how to calculate what was necessary for the exam and is really explanatory. I just feel that having an accounting background makes it easier.

  • Abdallah says:

  • Mohammed says:

    Hello,,
    I just finished my exam yesterday and I’m so anxious about the result. Can any one help me by telling me what is the approximate date to release the score if I took the exam on June 2nd?

    By the way, this web site is very useful and I would like to thank Stephanie for her help and inspiring words.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Mohammed, thanks for your kind words. Don’t worry, it’s done and you should take a good rest! If you take the exam in June, the results will release around 40 days after the end of June, so sometime in mid August. Typically on Friday or Monday, i.e. Aug 14 or 17. Regards, Stephanie

  • Krishnanand says:

    <Gave Part 2 exam on 24th June……. Waiting for the results <

    I took the exam June 27th. Waiting on scores as well. The scores will usually first get updated on the website under “my profile”. A couple days later they get emailed. Hopefully they come out soon. If not today in a couple of hours, maybe Friday.

  • Blake Barksdale says:

    Any updates on score release? It is killing me!! I took the exam June 30th.

    • Kush says:

      Not yet as of almost 4pm eastern time. Don’t think today is the day, I read that they like to release it on Monday or Friday so possibly might have to wait until Friday. Hopefully I’m wrong and they release is mid week

  • Kashif Rehman says:

    So finally, the result is gonna to be announced on Friday then, m I right?

  • Krishnanand says:

    This waiting kills……………… 🙁

  • Mich says:

    I sent and email! They said this week ! Mostly 15 or 16

  • Femi Paul says:

    40 days from the month’s last day would fall on 11 August, a Tuesday, why have they chosen to always release on fridays and mondays… I am patiently waiting,.. I wish everyone all the best..

    • palducente says:

      July has 31 days so technically 40 days after 30 June is 10 August which is a Monday…. 🙁 Cant wait to see the results…. hehehehe

  • Kashif Rehman says:

    Result is out but not in my favour!!

  • ran zhu says:

  • Krishnanand says:

    Am also waiting for P2 result not posted till now

  • Kush says:

    Part 2 is out, I passed, hope the same for all of you as well!

  • Blake says:

    Thats weird! My P2 is still not out.

    • Kush says:

      Instead of looking on just your “My profile” page, click on the link where it says “My transcripts” and it will be in there. I also got an email

  • Pallavi Dalal says:

    I passed Part 1 of CMA

  • Blake says:

        Any body received any thing ??!!!!

        • David says:

          Results for the Part 1 and Part 2 examinations will be emailed to participants approximately 45 days after the end of the month in which you take the exam. For example, if you take the exam in May your grade will be available approximately July 16. Grades for exams taken in June will be available approximately August 16.

          The subject line of the notification email will be “ICMA Examination Results”. Be sure to check your Inbox and also your Spam and Junk folders because sometimes messages of this type are sent to these folders.

          Grades will also be posted in the My Transcript area of My Profile at the same time. To obtain your exam results, log into the IMA website http://www.imanet.org, and click on the “My Profile” link on the upper right hand corner of any screen.

          Once you are in your Profile look on the lower right-hand side of the page, you’ll see My Transcripts. Click on the “click here” link. You can view your current exam results and exam history in your transcript.

          Candidates who fail the exam will receive a written performance report by email. Prometric will email the Performance Reports directly to candidates approximately 2 weeks after the grades are posted.

  • Osama Abu-Taleb says:

    any news about the results ….

  • David says:

    IS it Today for Sep / 2015 results ???? Still no information under my transcripts

  • Dana Agha says:

    Nothing yet !!!!
    Why the whole of this time … it is 41 days from the end of September .. ??!!!!!!!!!!! ?

  • David says:

    Has anyone got his result?

  • Dana Agha says:

    If we review the comments above we would see that at the same of this time ( Nov/ 2014 ) the result have been released … why it didnt now yet??!!!!!!!!

  • Dana Agha says:

    ? it is very hard waiting … today is exactly 6 weeks (42) from the end of September .
    Any body is here ?! ???

  • Kamel says:

    I guess the results will be released today. However, I spoke to IMA representative and she said that the results will be out by 16 next Monday.

  • Osama Abu-Taleb says:

    it’s unnecessary that the result should be released either on friday or Mondy.

    the results for May window released on 9 JUL 2015 ( thursday ).

    so i think it can be released any time …

  • Henry says:

    Result out. PASSED!!!!!!!!!!

  • Osama abutaleb says:

    Thanks god .

  • OmatHB says:

  • Stephanie Ng says:

    By the way, for those who passed either one part or both parts of the exam, I am more than happy to write a recommendation for you on LinkedIn. If interested, please fill in the form here: https://ipassthecmaexam.com/pass-cma/

  • Dana Agha says:

    Congratulation for all , happy for you
    But sad for myself
    I’m failed ? , this is the first (failed) in my whole life.

  • Rob says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    I just wrote the CMA exam and wanted to give my feedback.
    I found it to be OK… meaning I got alot right.. and alot wrong… I did manage to progress to the essay section so that means I got at least 50% on the mcq.. but I am thinking I will be in the 60s because some questions were tough and wrong for sure… the essay section was also OK… first case was done decent.. but last case time was running out so just jotted down points… not good….I now know why the pass rate is 48%… its a tough exam to do well on… material isn’t hard.. its the test questions vs. time. I wonder if all financial exams have 40% pass rates?

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Rob, yes indeed the questions could be quite complex. Don’t worry, a lot of candidates find it tough and many turn out to be ok. The US CPA has a similar pass rate, and CFA slightly lower. I have an analysis on the pass rate here:
      https://ipassthecmaexam.com/cma-exam-pass-rate/

      But don’t try to over analyze. Just take a break! Try out some of the suggestions listed above. Let’s touch in a few weeks 🙂 Stephanie

      • Rob says:

        Hi Stephanie,
        Ya I recommend people try it ASAP just to see it… its basically a situation where you need to work extremely fast… I would like to be able to read it over after being done the exam. This would have helped a lot. Time flew by in both sections mcq and essay. But I will do it again and keep doing it till I get it. 🙂

  • sean says:

    reusult out for exam in Jan ??

    looking forward to seeing it~!

  • Aliasgar Kapasi says:

    When is Feb 2016 results expected?

  • Aliasgar Kapasi says:

  • Osama abutaleb says:

    So far there is no update

    • sajjad says:

      Results for the Part 1 and Part 2 examinations will be emailed to participants approximately 45 days after the end of the month in which you take the exam. For example, if you take the exam in May, your grade will be available approximately July 16th. Grades for exams taken in June will be available approximately August 16th.

  • Z says:

    Actually, it looks like Friday or this week or Monday of next week according to the estimates above. So, probably not today although the ones from January were released around April 8 per the above posts. We shall see….

  • Ahmed says:

    Hello guys, it might be today at the end of the working hours. Lets hope for the best.

  • Abdullah says:

    Waiting for May’s window results. Should be out any moment now!

    p.s I already failed part 1 twice. this is my 3rd attempt 🙁

  • Ghassan says:

    I hope all of us passed the exam

  • Z says:

    Best of luck to all. I hope the results come out today as well. Have not received anything yet and the CMA profile shows both exams still pending (I took Part I).

  • David says:

    It seems that the results won’t be released today….!!!!

  • Z says:

    Per Stephanie’s estimates at the top of the page, it will be either this Friday or next Monday. I think anything earlier will be a bonus for us.

  • Z says:

    Just got the results email. Passed with the score of 400 (not sure whether that is good, barely passing or the middle of the road). Now onto Part II.

    Best of luck to all the others.

  • Deepak says:

    Just received my results for Part 1 – passed with a scaled score of 430! Now on to waiting for the Part 2 results.
    Good luck to all!

  • Abdullah says:

    I failed for the 3rd time

  • Ahmed says:

    I have passed CMA part 2 and become a CMA.

    I PAAAAAASSSSEDDDDDDDDDDDD WOOOOHOOOOOO

  • Kame says:

    I passed Part 2 with 390 YEEEEEHAAAAA

  • G 7 says:

    I give up I will not take the exam against wish you all to pass the cma exams

  • Z says:

    Sincere congrats, Deepak, Ahmed, Kame and David. Especially to those who have completed both exams successfully.

    Abdullah, inshallah, next time is the time to pass. G7 – if you were fairly close to passing, you should take it again – I had the same thoughts in terms of what I would do if I did not pass but getting this certification is a significant milestone and worth the extra effort…just my humble opinion.

    Part II hopefully later this year…

  • Abdullah says:

    Can’t deny I’m feeling devastated after being close 3 times. 3 times failing is really hard on me. All this time and money went for nohing. This is really bad. I’m doing it wrong obviously.

  • Ahmed says:

    I will take this opoortunity to thank Stephanie for this forum and all the support and the effort that she is doing.

  • Mehtab hussain says:

      Almost the results are released on Friday or Monday.

        Best of Luck

    I just got my score. I passed!! I’m done with exams.

  • Ali says:

    Results are out. Passed. 🙂 i am a cma now

  • Deepak says:

    Guys have you received P1 or P2 results? I gave P2 and have not seen anything come through yet!

  • Ahmed hanie says:

    Pass part 2 score 410 thanks to Allah
    Hope all the best to my colleges

  • mehtab says:

    result out i passed part 2 now i became cma

  • Deepak says:

    Congrats to all!

    I just received my results too. Passed P2 with a scaled score of 450! I had cleared P1 in May window, so I am a CMA now!

  • Osama says:

    Mr Deepak
    which material did you use for part 01?

  • Salim says:

    Cleared my P2 – Happy .

  • Ahmed,CMA says:

    Congardulations to all of you guys. CMA worth the time and the effort.Wish you all the best.

  • Danny says:

    I passed and a CMA now.

  • Gurjit says:

    when will IMA release performance report for june window ?

  • Danny says:

    Does Anyone receive their certificate number by mail?

  • Pavan says:

    No Danny

  • DANNY ZHU says:

    We cannot put the CMA after the name even though We see CMA after the name in the account with ICMA. We can put CMA after the name when we receive the certificate number. Right?

  • Pavan says:

    Please let me know if anyone has got certificate. Just wonder will certificate will be sent as soft copy or it will be sent through physical mail /courier.

    Appreciate your revert!

  • Gurjit says:

    Dear Stephanie,

    when will IMA release performance report for june window ?

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Gurjit, it shoud be around 14 days after exam results are shown on your profile. But it only applies to those who didn’t pass the exam. Hope it helps, Stephanie

  • Gurjit says:

    thank you ! Stephanie !

  • Ala says:

    Hi Guys

    I took part 1 exam in sep 5th , when is it expected to receive the results ?

  • David says:

    It should be out by 11th of Nov

  • Katie says:

    Yup, waiting, waiting. Hoping for the 11th, as I took mine Sep. 16th. Here’s hoping!

  • SRT says:

    I am waiting for the exam results for part 2 taken on September 3rd. The wait is certainly long and hopefully we will receive results very soon.

    SRT

  • David says:

    OMG, the waiting is extremely HARD!

    Is it really needs 6 weeks to get the results!
    Does the essay questions really need all that amount of time!

    The waiting is very long and full of stress and heart-shaking…. We just need whether we PASS or FAIL….. I’m trying to make myself busy as mush as possible but I can’t stop thinking how I did in the exam that I took almost two months ago.. I’ve also forgot the material and all that studying hours and efforts…

    I hope the IMA do something about this… The CPA waiting results are shorter..

    I’m sorry for this but I just wanted to share my thought and feelings about it. Even this is not my first exam… but I can’t get used to it also.. This’s so hard

  • Cristin says:

    David,

    I completely understand. I’m trying to distract myself with chores, but really just over here losing my mind waiting for the results to come in.

  • Christina says:

    This waiting is so hard! It seems based off an email Response I received from IMA contact that the timeframe for September test results are November 15-19! I took my Part 1 September 6! Good luck to everyone!

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Entirely possible… Nov 11 is really the earliest date possible in my opinion. But as you see from the stats above, they tend to release the results earlier than in previous years… but if back to normal, Nov 15-19 is the norm.

  • Zubair says:

    Best of luck to all who are waiting for result.
    Regards,
    Zubair

  • Kamel says:

    Hope the results announced today. . Waiting

  • Deez says:

    I called the IMA yesterday and was told that the results will be released no later than November 16th. Let’s hope the customer service rep was right. In the meantime, does anyone know what time of day they are usually released?

  • Katie says:

    November 16th? Good grief. Guess I’ll stop checking my phone like a lunatic.

  • Kamel says:

    They usually say no later than 15th or 16th. But they release it between 11th and 12th.
    So, if the results won’t release today it’ll be on Monday 14th for sure.

  • Cristin says:

    The June testing window results were released around 10:30 or 11am EST, but I am not sure if that is the norm since that is the only other one I have taken.

  • David says:

    I need my result now… IMA you’re making our waiting harder…

  • Christina says:

    When the results are released, where at in my IMA profile will I see the results?

    Thank you.

  • David says:

    Under my transcripts. And you will receive an email simultaneously

  • Christina says:

    Thank you!

  • Katie says:

    440 on Part 2!!!!! Thank you, Stephanie, for your awesome site! I’ve been studying for Part 1 the last few weeks and I know I’ll be able to focus and tackle this one now that I know I had a great score on Part 2!

  • Kamel says:

    I passed yeeehaa

  • Julie McBreairty says:

    450 for Part 1!! Took Part 2 on 10/31, so looking forward to receiving that score in December! 🙂

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Julie, that’s truly impressive especially you are taking the exam in the same testing window! I’ve got to tell people about this on my FB page 😉 Congrats again you should go celebrate!

  • SRT says:

    I passed part 2!!! Part one was much easier for me but perhaps my work experience in manufacturing may be the reason.

    Good Luck to all and thanks Stephanie for maintaining this very supportive blog.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi SRT, congrats! Yes it depends largely on our experience, but anyway you’ve made it and that’s the most important! Now go celebrate and enjoy life. All the best to you.

  • Emilia says:

    Passed Part 2 with a score of 450! Even I can’t believe it! Thank you Stephanie for this blog, it really picked me up when I was demotivated. Congratulations to everyone who passed..and for those who didn’t, a pat on the back for you for your effort and wish you the best of luck for your next attempt! Keep going!

  • Kamel says:

    Thanks God I passed and done with CMA

  • Cristin says:

    Passed Part 2 in June with a 410 and just passed Part 1 with a 360! I’m done! I worked hard, but still can’t believe it!

    Congrats to everyone else on this accomplishment!

  • Zubair says:

    Hard luck. ??. I decided to quit. Bad luck again for 4th time. What’s wrong I have no idea where I lack.

  • kamel says:

    Hi Cristin, same here.. i passed part 2 with 390 and passed part 1 with 360!
    I was surprized but anyway I passed. however, i expected to score better but it doesn’t matter

  • Rick says:

    Does anyone have any advice on part 1? I found this one to be incredibly tough. The variance chapter is so confusing. I don’t work with variances at work at all.
    That is where I am getting almost everything wrong.
    Thanks.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Rick, yes it is something that people find tricky but if you figure it out, the questions become straightforward. I suggest that you go through a few questions (those with full explanation) very carefully and make sure you understand each step before moving on. There are also videos from Youtube and probably Khan Academy that can help explain the steps.

  • Julie McBreairty says:

    Thank you very much, Stephanie! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Ksmel says:

    @Stephanie Ng

    He Stephanie, Yes I’m done

  • Kamel says:

    @Stephanie Ng

    He Stephanie, Yes I’m done

  • Rick says:

    Hi,
    does anyone know if the exams get harder if you need to do them again? like just to make the people who repeat less likely to pass?
    This is just a rumor I heard.
    Thanks

  • Kamel says:

    I don’t think so, as I repeated my exam, Yes you can see it harder because they continually update questions. But it’s not specific for candidates to make them less likely to pass… as you heard!

  • Rick says:

    Hi Kamel,
    you repeated? So I am not the only one? phew… feels like I am.
    what did you do different in preparing for the repeat?
    Thanks,

  • Kamel says:

    Hi Rick,

    I change my strategy!

    1. Study again and summarize the concepts and important information with your own words
    2. Solve more question and study your answers, why its correct? and why it wrong?
    3. Solve the incorrect questions until you get 100%
    4 Revise your notes frequently
    5. Solve the IMA retired question

  • Rick says:

    Stephanie,
    I am wondering like the other person. Do you think we should write the exam in the next testing window or wait a window? I do work FT.
    Thanks

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Rick, it depends on how well you have prepared for the exam… taking the exam right afterwards is not a problem if you feel like you are ready, or have an idea how to improve from your last attempt.

  • Rick says:

    Hi Kamel,
    did you take the exam again in the next session? or wait 1 session?

  • Kamel says:

    Hi Rick,

    I did it in the next window.

  • Babu says:

    Dear Stephanie,

    I wrote CMA part I exam in Oct 2016. MCQ level was tough but I attempted all Essay questions and Essay questions were easier than MCQs. Awaiting for result. Please let me know when the results will be out and how can we check our results.
    Thanks

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Babu, that’s good to know. Yes most candidates find MCQ tougher than the essays. My estimation of the CMA exam results time can be found in the above. You’ll also see how accurate (or not) I have been in estimating the results release day 😉

  • Babu says:

    Thanks Stephanie.

    Everyday thinking of Results. fingers crossed….

  • Pavan says:

    Hi Stephanie

    Just wonder what are the suggested reading text books( not prep material or review). I don’t see any ref on IMA website. Please help

  • Max says:

    Received my PASSING exam results this evening for Part II taken 10/27/2016. Having passed Part I earlier this year I am a CMA or least once I receive my certificate number in the mail I can call myself a CMA.

  • Julie McBreairty says:

    I passed Part 2 with a 450! I’m done!!

  • Mohammad H. says:

    Results for October 2016 are out. I followed your page while waiting for the results, so thank you!!

    I paased both exams 🙂 Wishing eveyone a successful life & career.

  • Babu says:

    I failed in CMA part 1 with 290 marks. It was my first attempt.

    Congratutions to all who have passed examination this time.

    Those who have not cleared the examination let us work hard and try for next attempt.

  • Babu says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for your kind works. This blog is really motivating us to work hard by reading others success story. Due to Family and work commitments I could not manage time well in my last attempt. I already scheduled my exam in Feb 2017.
    I will work hard to pass CMA Part 1 in next try.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      That’s great to know! Yes, the bloggers put their heart and soul when writing for us. I really appreciate because many continued to blog while getting stressed out in their own exams. You can do it too! Stephanie

  • Haneen Bannoura says:

    Hello Stephanie ,

    I took the first Part of CMA exam last october, and 11 days ago i received the great news of passing the exam.
    And today i received a letter named score information,
    but actually i did not get my grade.
    I am curios to know how much did i get on the multiaple and essay questions !
    When do i get that ? and how ?

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Haneen, congrats! I don’t think you can get the breakdown. The diagnostic report is available to those who fail (for their analysis for the next attempt). For professional exams, the score doesn’t matter (to recruiters) as long as you pass.

  • Gaurav Mandhyan says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    I had cleared the Part 2 exam in May/June window last year, but due to some personal reasons I have been unable t appear for the Part 1 exams.

    Could you please let me know the validity of my score in Part 2? I mean if I cannot clear it in the current window, and the next. Does my Part 2 score lapse?

  • Haneen Bannoura says:

    Hello Dear ,

    I guess the exam validity is three years , since i read before that you have to pass the both parts with 3 years, thats why he exam fees validity is three years !

  • Katie says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Any word from the IMA about score release dates for 2017? I’m about to take Part 1 on Friday–would love to have an idea of when I’ll be notified (something more targeted than just “6ish weeks”).

    Thanks!

  • Lance says:

    I checked to see my cma score under myima. When I go to my certification, it only shows the following: CMA 2 Part Certification (2010) 10/25/2016 PENDING. I took in Jan 2017, the sites doesn’t show when I took the exam. Is that normal? Thank you

  • Katie says:

    Lance, if you log in to IMA and go to your dashboard, then click “My Courses and Transcripts”. Click “Manage Transcripts”. Once your scores are released, that exam and the score will be listed there. However, the scores for January 2017 exams won’t be released until mid-March (I took the exam in January as well).

    • Sai says:

      Hi Katie,

      I also took my exam in Jan 2017 window. Keeping my fingers crossed. Feels like the days are not moving. Can’t wait for the results.

  • Z says:

    Just took part II today in Bahrain. I must say that it was quite difficult with challenging questions. I used Wiley study materials (provided by work) and supplemented with Gleim test bank. I guess the score will be available mid-April.

    Best of luck to all taking the test in February.

  • Lance says:

    I took the exam on 1/21/2017. Where should I go check the results? I didn’t see the date I took the exam on myima under transcript or my certification. Thanks!

    • Sai says:

      Hi Lance,

      You will get the exam results on your registered email. And the same will be updated on your IMA profile soon after the results. The email will come from ima@imanet.org with the subject “ICMA Examination Results”

      Good luck for your results. Me too waiting for the results. I took my Part 2 on 23-Jan-2017. Keeping my fingers crossed.

      • Lance says:

        Thank you for sharing. Just couple more days until the results are out!

        • Josh says:

          Sai, I also took Part 2 in Jan. I thought it was much harder than Part 1 :/ Waiting on the result patiently. Just a few days hopefully!

          • sai says:

            Hi Josh,

            Same feeling. The MCQs were much harder than Part 1. But the essays were relatively OK. But till the last moment, I was not sure that i will make to the essay 😉

            Let’s see what’s in store for us. Let’s pray for good results.

            All the best Josh !

            Regards
            Sai

          • Dharmendra Shah says:

            My observation is also same. Part 2 MCQ were more time consuming and tough then part 1.

        • sai says:

          good luck for your results !

  • Lance says:

    Did any one receive the results yet?

  • Josh says:

    Tran, did the rep say that it is still possible for the scores to be released today, or not at all?

    • Tran says:

      Yes, I did ask the question over the phone but she said some year they had early results, this year maybe not. She just guarantee that it would be March 16 as the latest.
      I had the same feeling like you guys. I have been waiting for 6 weeks and now feel so bad to wait another week but it’s out of our control.
      If we do not receive anything today, I think we will have on Tue Mar 14 because that’s exact 42 days or 6 weeks from the last day of Jan.

      Below the email I got from them yesterday:

      Hello Tran,

      Thank you for your support of IMA.

      Results for the Part 1 and Part 2 examinations will be emailed to participants approximately 45 days after the end of the month in which you take the exam. For example, if you take the exam in January your grade will be available approximately March 16th. Grades for exams taken in February will be available approximately April 16th.

      The subject line of the notification email will be “ICMA Examination Results”. Be sure to check your Inbox and also your Spam and Junk folders because sometimes messages of this type are sent to these folders.

      Grades will also be posted in the My Transcript area of My Profile at the same time. To obtain your exam results, log into the IMA website http://www.imanet.org and click on the “myIMA” link on the upper right hand corner of any screen.

      Once you are in your Profile, you’ll see My Transcripts on the bottom of the page. Click on the “view all” link. You can view your current exam results and exam history in your transcript.

      Candidates who fail the exam will receive a written performance report by email. Prometric will email the Performance Reports directly to candidates approximately 2 weeks after the grades are posted.

    Well, it’s 5pm on the East Coast. I guess we’ll have to wait until next week. Thanks, IMA, that’s not a torturous way to pass the weekend.

  • Z says:

    Best of luck to all. I do agree that Part II MCQ seemed harder and more time consuming than Part I. I took Part II on Feb 23 so it is 4-5 weeks of more waiting for me.

    Keep us posted on the results and fingers crossed that everyone passes!

  • Azam says:

    I am also waiting for my result.I appreared in Part II on 5th Jan.2017.

  • Shadi Abu Hassan says:

    I also agree part 2 exam was much difficult comparing with part 1 which I took last October! !
    The point I noticed that the subject’s weight percentage not applied at all in the exam, this may affect my result a’s I focused more on high weight subjects but the essay was on subject with low weight percentage! !!!
    Next month will know

    • s says:

      Hi Shadi,

      You are right.Hoping that there will be some relaxation in valuation as the paper was tough.

      Good luck for your results.

  • VCAB says:

    Hi, what time or day could the results be possibly be out? It’s been prolonging my agony. I have the feeling that it will be today. Any thoughts?

    • s says:

      Hi VCAB,

      I also expect it today. Let’s see. The exam(part 2) was tough, the results are late than usual, can’t ask for more. Just want a favorable results for all. Keeping fingers crossed. Hope everyone clears.

      • VCAB says:

        Hi S, thanks for your reply. I’ve taken part 1 in January so the result was my motivating factor in part 2. How’s your part 2 exam? Heard that part 2 was more challenging and difficult than part 1.

        • s says:

          Hi VCAB,

          Part 2 was challenging. I completed my Part 1 in Oct 2016. Comparing Part 1, Part 2 was more tricky and time consuming. Too much tensed. MCQ were lengthy & time consuming. Essays were relatively easy. But till last minute, was not sure that I will be going to essay window.

          • s says:

            Hi VCAB,

            how was your experience in Part 1? Have u completed part 2 already?

          • VCAB says:

            Hi S, nice to know that you’re only few steps from being certified. I wish you goodluck. Hope u’ll make it, I sure you do. It was my first time to appear in any prometric exams so the interface was new to me, I only had self-study, then. I was able to get through essay part but I lost track of time so didn’t able to finish the last question. Crossing my fingers. LOL!

          • s says:

            Hi VCAB,

            Thanks a lot for your kind wishes. With self study, you have reached essay window in your first attempt means, you have done really well. Kudos. Keep up your good work. Good luck to you too.

            Regards
            S

  • Shadi says:

    Thanks for your hopes
    I hope also IMA will reconsider
    About relaxing no ? I immediately started CIA
    In current economic conditions no time for relaxation

  • s says:

    If results are coming today, from when we can start looking for the e-mail?

    Any guess?

    Regards
    S

    • Pahlaj Nihlani says:

      The results will be declared on or after 15th March i.e., after 45 days of exam month. So, control your anxiety.

      • s says:

        Dear Pahlaj Nihlani ,

        Thanks a lot for your info.

        • Pahlaj says:

          You are welcome. To be frank, I got a response saying that the results will be declared on or before 16th of March 2017 9:30 AM EST. Which simply means that there is even a chance of result releasing today. But it is better for us to expect on Wednesday or Thursday as less anxiety is always good. Good luck

  • Pavan says:

    9.30am EST

    • s says:

      Hey Pawan,

      Thanks a lot. But is there any chance for the results to be out today?

      Regards
      S

    • Pahlaj Nihlani says:

      The results will be released only after 45 days. Only after 15th March or in best cases on 14th March. Got confirmation from IMA. Mailed them a week before.

      • s says:

        Hey Pahlaj Nihlani, your best case thought worked out. Results came on 14th.

        I cleared with 380. And I’m a CMA now. Feeling so happy.

        • Haneen says:

          How Do you guys knows your results ? I mean the grades .I passed CMa part one which i sat for last October and got the good news December , but until now I do not know My grade !

      • Stephanie Ng says:

        Thanks Pahlaj. I’ll update my post based on this then. They seem to postpone the date every year, from 40 to 42 to now 45 days…

  • Josh says:

    Got my results just now! Pass! Hope the best for everyone else!

    410 on Part 1!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a CMA!

  • Salim Shamsher says:

    i AM SO WORRIED, APPEARED FOR MY PART 1 IN FEB 2017. ANXIOUSLY WAITING.

  • lance says:

    Does anyone know why part 2 always have a higher passing rate than part 1?
    35% vs 50%?

    Thank,

    • Salim says:

      Hi,

      I can see three reasons to this :-

      1) Part I is more wordy, The Audit part especially involves writing detailed answers. If linguistic skills are poor, this can pose a problem.

      2) The Accounting Part ( RMVD) in part I is quite difficult . Remembering all that US GAAP and IFRS disclosures part is just too much to handle ( At least I found it to be so )

      3) Part I is much more exhaustive than Part II in terms of content to be studied.

    • Pahlaj N says:

      The syllabus is vast in Part 1. The theory that you study in your textbook cannot be applied directly to the problems . Also, a major chunk of problems are intuition based, so the people who do not have enough amount of practice will not be able to solve the questions directly.

  • Sairam says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Today I got my license number from IMA. Feeling so proud to have it. Wanted to convey you and thank for the super support and guidance.

    Regards
    Sairam

    • Paul says:

      Hi Sairam,

      Can I ask the process you did for submitting experience form.

      1. Did you fill up the form citing the contact details of your previous employers?
      2. Did IMA contact your references? What can you advise if you have no good relationship with your previous employers but you need then to verify?
      3. Did you scan the form and email or mail ?
      4. The signature at the back, is it your signature or the references signature.

      Hope you ca answer each items cleary for us.

      Any other advices on experience requirements you can share that will help others.

      Hi Steph,

      Can you also guide us specifically. I found same topic in this blog but not answers this questions. I also contact IMA and just need actual experience from candidates.

      Thanks!

      • Sairam Beeman says:

        Hi Paul,

        Below are my comments:
        1. Did you fill up the form citing the contact details of your previous employers?
        Yes. I gave my previous employer details.

        2. Did IMA contact your references? What can you advise if you have no good relationship with your previous employers but you need then to verify?
        In reality, IMA will call only the current employer. For reference checks, usually the current employers are called globally.

      That’s wonderful news Sairam! Stephanie

  • Puneet says:

    Countdown starts for people who appeared for Feb testing window…. I am one of them…what is expected date of result for Feb testing window.

  • Shadi says:

    Hopefully by 10th
    Really its soo tough to wait

  • Hari says:

    I expect the result to be out on 12th April. If we look at results of Jan cycle it came on 15th Mar which is exactly after 6 weeks (43rd day from the end of Jan to be precise). If we apply the same logic, the result should be out on 12th April which is also 43rd day from the end of Feb.

    All the best!!!

    • Pahlaj N says:

      Absolutely, I am guessing the same date this time. But I have a gut feeling that results will be out of 11th Midnight(IST). Fingers crossed.

  • Salim says:

    Truly, Tough to wait. Have a lot of things at Stake, Have to clear.

  • Salim says:

    Should be somewhere between 12th- 15th, I guess. A long wait.

  • Z says:

    Could today be the day?

    • Adithan says:

      I am thinking the same about today too.
      Wish IMA could come up with fixed date and time for results. Even if its like 50 days from the specified month.
      Would reduce the stress about results a lot.

  • Adithan says:

    This waiting is more excruciating.. Hope they declare the result soon.
    Btw, wrote my Part – 2 in Feb, 2017.

  • Puneet says:

    CMA head office is about to open within 40 minutes for 10th may . I think results should come today before they close.

  • Tamer says:

    I think that the results will be released today?

  • Z says:

    The results will be tomorrow which is exactly 42 days from Feb 28, 2017. Last 5 months have been 42 days so no reason not to have the same. 24 more hours of waiting….

    Last Day Release Days
    5/31/2016 7/12/2016 42
    6/30/2016 8/11/2016 42
    9/30/2016 11/11/2016 42
    10/31/2016 12/12/2016 42
    1/31/2017 3/14/2017 42
    2/28/2017 4/11/2017 42

  • T says:

    Hello Guys,

    I have contacted the IMA last Friday and the below was their answer:

    It is approximately 6 weeks starting from March 1st. I cannot give you an exact answer since sometime it takes less time and sometimes more depending on the number of candidates that took the exam in the window.

    • Adithan says:

      To be honest, that’s what i don’t concur with the institute. In a general scenario a range is good. But for results i would love if they change their perspective and schedule a fixed date. like 42 or even 50 for some buffer sake. It will make our lives a lot easier.

  • CMA says:

    Anyone here took both exams in same window (Jan/Feb 17). Are you aiming for any of the awards???

    Comment your scores anonymously so I can gauge my chances. Hopefully.

  • Anonymous as you have asked. says:

    Was aiming for Gold. but sadly couldn’t do group 1 coz some other exams got scheduled in last week of December and I wasn’t able to do my prep as I would have liked.

    I took one part in Feb but i don’t expect much. anything that makes me pass will be more than relished.

  • alick says:

    Anyone as anxious as me to wait for Feb test window result? Seems it would be more than six weeks, was not able to sleep well these days. One last step to be cirtified.

    • Adithan says:

      Feeling the same. albiet I’m gonna write another part in May. But just couldn’t read thinking about the result. Hope it’s released today.

  • Z says:

    According to the table I posted above, it should be today (If 42 days after the last day of the month is true).

    Best of luck to everyone. Hoping for some good news to put this CMA adventure to rest.

  • D says:

    Anyone know the time of the day during which they’ll declare the result ? Assuming it’s on 11th April, what time can I expect the result ?

  • Bilal Wahid Khan says:

    Hi Everyone,

    Any update on the result? I appeared on Feb 28 and was hoping for the result to be yesterday, but received nothing until now.

  • Z says:

    Is there any chance to see from the IMA’s website whether one passed or not? I was just looking at it and it says only that Part I has been passed but it does not indicate that I even registered for Part II (which I took in February).

    Just wondering whether we could get any visibility into the results that way.

    • A says:

      I’m not really sure. I wrote Part – 2 in Feb, and writing the other this May. And under “My certificate” it shows as “Part 2 – Pending”. so I assume it must show the same way to you too.

      again, not entirely sure.

    • T says:

      Hello ,

      I am waiting for my part 1 results which i took last Feb .

      The website does not show that i took the exam at all too.

  • Z says:

    Thank you for the responses. The website is pretty much useless unless you need to pay the annual dues. The wait continues…

  • Sathish Kumar says:

    Looking forward for the exam results .Hopefully it gets announced today.I took my Part 1 Exam on Feb 22. All the best to all those who are anxiously waiting for the exam results.

  • Z says:

    All the best to all expecting the results today. Do we know at what time IMA releases the results? I just looked at my Part I and it says 5:30 PM but I was in the US at the time so I do not know whether that was US time or Middle East where I am now…

    • T says:

      It is 10 AM us timing.

      Normally it is released after 9:30 am but not sure if it is not released at 9:30 it will be released today or not.

      We are tired from waiting…

      • Adithan says:

        I think think site is in ET timing, which is the same time zone of IMA.
        For January, results were announced on March 14. and the first comment regarding the declaration of result in this site was around 03 PM.
        So i am not sure if it’s exactly a specified time. But my hope is for them to release it today.

        • Z says:

          Correct…I am thinking the same thing and that we need to wait about 5 more hours.

          • K says:

            I’m not sure that there is a particular formula for the time of release. I am located in the Easter time zone, and have received my results from two prior exams at varying times. 11:30am and 4:55pm.

    • Adithan says:

      Normally the timing should be in ET. In that case, it’s like 8 hours more.

      • Sathish Kumar says:

        It’s 10.15 ET now (as i type). So another 4-5 hours approximately if the results are today.Possible it may be sooner also. But whatever, it would be good if the results are announced today.We can put an end to our anxiety.:)

        • Adithan says:

          It may not be exactly 4-5 hours. but a prediction based on the time of declaration on March. But yeh, the earlier, the better.

  • Aaron says:

    I cleared Part 1 last October and I took Part 2 this February.

    I barely passed part 1 with a 370. Hoping for good news on Part 2 (hopefully today).

    Good luck to everyone patiently waiting.

  • Tamer says:

    Did anyone receive anything?

  • Z says:

    No, nothing yet. Still waiting…

  • TAMER says:

    The 6 weeks end is today, it’s sooooo hard to wait for more time

  • T says:

    Hi

    One of my colleagues who faild at the mcq , did just now received an e-mail with the grade from the ima
    .

    I have checked both my account and e-mail nothing yet, is it possible that they start with those who faild in the mcq and then send to ones who completed the essay?

  • Saikat says:

    Hi All, just got mail. Passed part 1 with 420. Best wishes to everyone waiting .. Done with CMA 🙂 ..

  • Sean says:

    Guys,

    I passed the P1 and just received the confirmation email.

  • Shadi says:

    Congratulations all
    Just took main
    Am CMA now

  • Z says:

    are you IMA websites also updated and reflect that you passed?

  • T says:

    Well done alh who passed

    I am still waiting for my e-mail .

  • T says:

    Just got my results. Passed Part 1 with a 380! I got a 340 on my first attempt and was pretty upset and discouraged, but I reviewed my notes again, did twice or thrice as many multiple choice problems, practiced faster ways of solving problems, and passed in the next exam slot! The issues I had with my first attempt were: I ran out of time and left 20 questions unanswered and my understanding of one of the significant chapters was too weak. I understood it very well by the 2nd time around. I’ve been studying Part 2 while staying busy and waiting for my results, and I am *so glad* I don’t have to take Part 1 again in June, which was my plan if I failed again. I’m scheduled to take Part 2 in May.

  • Z says:

    Passed with 440!!!! SO HAPPY!!!! Congrats to all who passed as well!

  • alick says:

    finally passed,quite torturing long waiting time , good luck to u all

  • H says:

    I did not get the email yet !
    Does that mean I failed ?

  • Shadi says:

    No it doesn’t
    Just wait few minutes

  • Tamer says:

    Congratulation dears
    I am waiting for my email!

  • Aaron says:

    I passed part 2 and now am a CMA!

  • Tran says:

    I passed part 1 with 430. I’m CMA now

  • Zo says:

    Cleared Part 2. Done with CMA Exams!!!

  • Hari says:

    Cleared both parts. Part I 460 & Part II 440.
    All the best to people appearing for exams in coming cycle. Congratulations to everyone who cleared the exam this cycle.
    Thank you Stephanie for the efforts in making this platform. It is a wonderful place to meet like minded people. Thanks to everyone for providing the updates.

  • Z1 says:

    Passed part 2 with 420. CMA done! Glad I had this thread so I wasn’t waiting alone.

  • Sherif Aryan says:

    I pass and earn the CMA finally 🙂 🙂

  • Sathish Kumar says:

    Congratulations to all those who cleared the CMA exams. For those who didn’t pass, do not give up and keep trying. You may be just one step away from success and give your best.

    I cleared my Part I and preparing for Part 2 exam. Kindly share any exam tips or suggestions related to Part 2 that will be helpful in preparations. Thanks in advance.

    • Sairam Beeman says:

      Hi Satish,

      You have cleared the tougher part. Part 2 should be easy for you. Cos I felt that way. Clearing Part 2 was much easy for me.

      All the very best. Practice more essay questions on RISK MANAGEMENT & PROFESSIONAL ETHICS.

      That’s the crux. Students usually concentrate on other areas leaving these 2 areas as it carries less percentage. Only for MCQs the percentages will work. So most students will clear MCQ but feel essay questions very tough.

      All the very best. Complete Part 2 with same spirit.

    • S says:

      Hi Satish can you give any tips for part 1?

      • Sathish Kumar says:

        Hi,

        I followed Wiley study material and found them really useful. Initially i gave a complete read of the entire material and then a round of revision. I gave equal weightage to all the sections. However, i found the coverage was very extensive for Section A (External Financial Reporting Decisions) in the material and very technical as well which took more time to read and understand. Practiced MCQ’s for all sections and also tried cracking some of the essay questions before the exams.Try to practice as many MCQ’s as possible. But the model MCQ’s are quite simple when compared to actual exam questions. Ensure that you are able to complete 100 MCQ’s in 2-2.5 hours with 85% correct answers in your practice sessions to be more confident when you take your exams.

        All the Best!

  • Brian says:

    Received my results yesterday and cleared part 2 with a 420. Now on to part one in June.

  • Just Saying says:

    Anyone here using/bragging/claiming the CMA title already after passing exams but not yet completed the education and experience requirements, hence not yet licensed?

    I believed unless you received your license no. then we can call ourselves CMA.

    Just saying fyi. Anyways, who cares. Whats important is we hurdled the exams.!!!!

    “Upon verification of your education and experience documents, you will receive your CMA certificate number. Once this is issued, you may begin using the CMA designation and promote it”-IMA Website.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      That’s true… I assume the readers have all their experience verification forms ready when they wait for the results. If that’s the case it’s only a couple month weeks. But thanks a lot for the reminder. Some people may not have realized that 🙂

  • Salim says:

    Failed, Part 1 with a 340, Extremely disappointed , I was wondering whether i should opt for the Gleim review course . I had studied a lot but somehow did not clear through. Kindly advise. ( I have already cleared Part II).

    • Sairam Beeman says:

      Dear Salim,

      You missed it just by 4 questions (Approx). You have almost done it. Don’t worry. I can understand the pain. But changing the material is not required as you were close enough. Don’t waste time by changing the material and things like that.

      May be an extra effort on your essay will help you out to cross the small margin. Rest I guess you are on right track as regards the material and your study plan. If you made a wrong plan, you would have got way less.

      Just one more attempt with same spirit and extra care on essay will make you get 360+ in your next attempt.

      Good luck. All the very best.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Oh… you probably only missed a few questions. With such narrow miss it’s hard to tell whether it’s the materials or other reasons. But sure let’s hear the thoughts of the others.

      • Salim says:

        Hi Stephanie,

        Unfortunately , what happened was , I had left a certain part of the RMVD portion ( Part I ) and in the Essay section, got questions pertaining , exactly to the portion I had skipped studying for. Life is tough.

  • Hari says:

    Does IMA provide something like a marksheet?
    Is the result that got updated in our profile and received through email is actually the official scorecard?
    I received something from Prometric yesterday but that said “keep for your records but not official copy”
    Don’t we get a more detailed scorecard rather than a mere total score kind of indicating pass or fail only.

    • Adithan says:

      I think Performance report with detailed scorecard is provided for only those, who didn’t make through the exams Hari.
      I also received a mail from Prometric like you described.

      And i am pretty sure the mail and Update in IMA profile would be sufficient for a proof, since after clearing both the parts (and completing edu/work criteria) we get a certificate that attests the same.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi Hari, since the exam is only part of the certification process, you won’t get anything official until after fulfilling all the requirements (i.e. also the experience requirements). But you can mention in your CV that you have passed the exam.

      • Hari says:

        Thanks Stephanie. I received my membership certificate online. I should receive the hard copy through mail in a week or two probably.

        • Adithan says:

          Hari,

          I have submitted my educational transcripts and it reached IMA on 21st July (Friday). Any idea about how long would they take to evaluate it ?

          • Hari says:

            It took me around 15 days to get my membership number online and I received my membership certificate via mail in another month’s time. But online notification about your membership number would suffice.

          • Adithan says:

            Thanks a lot Hari,

            And just received my membership number online.

            Cheers. !

  • lance says:

    would the score be out next week?

  • Marlon says:

    Hello everyone and Hi Stephanie – you are doing an outstanding job with providing a platform for people from all over the world to discuss aspects of the CMA exam.

    I have decided to join like minded people while I wait anxiously for my result. I sat both parts in the last testing window as follows:

    Part 1: May 3rd 2017
    Part 2: June 28th 2017

    I am predicting based on the thread highlighting recent history that the scores for the May sitting should be published between July 10th – 12th. Has anybody received their score as yet by chance?

    All the best!

    • Adithan says:

      Nope I still haven’t and I wrote on May 3rd.
      I expect it on 13th June btw.
      Fingers crossed 🙂

      All the best in advance 🙂

      • ramesh says:

        Hi Adithan,

        Which part you took?
        How was the exam?
        Which center u took the exam?

        • Adithan says:

          I took up Part – 1.
          Reg exam, i would say it was bit tougher than the Part -2 which i wrote in Feb.
          I took up the exam in colombo center

          • Marlon says:

            Thanks Adithan for providing that information. You must be very excited based on the fact that you have already passed Part 2.
            I took both exams in Miami, FL.
            I just hope to pass as so much depends on it.

          • Adithan says:

            Hey Marlon,

            I’m excited in every bit, but much more nervous, coz as like you said, even I got a lot running on the results.
            Just hoping for the best ✌

          • S says:

            All, the best.
            I will appear for Part 1 this October. I am wondering what to study for the essay questions. Any advise?

          • Stephanie Ng says:

            Hi S, besides Adithan’s comment, you may want to refer to my page on CMA exam essay tips: https://ipassthecmaexam.com/cma-exam-essay-prep/

          • Adithan says:

            Hey S,

            Sorry to be unhelpful on saying you to read all the topics coz I could never guess essay questions. And for CMA exam guess work is tad too risky.

            Kindly read and ‘understand’ all the topics. Once you get that understanding, type of questions doesn’t matter.

            Cheers for the exams.
            All the best 🙂

  • S says:

    Didn’t anyone got their results?

  • Marlon says:

    Did anyone receive their scores? I think today is the day.
    Also, how did you perform in the exam… Did you attempt all questions? Did you guess any… how many? Was time against you? How were the essays? Thanks guys.

    All the best to everyone!

    • Adithan says:

      Hey Marlon,

      The crowd is lil less than last time around.
      I too assume it will be released in 7-8 hours.
      Reg my timing, I fairly kept on with the timing structure of 2 hours 45 mins for MCQ & 1 hour 15 mins for essay.

    • Nidhi Hariyani says:

      Hi,

      I also cleared Part 2 in Feb window, and gave Part 1 in May.
      I am eagerly waiting for results. Not to bring down everybody’s excitement- but i had emailed IMA asking the expected date and they said approx July 16.

      Hopefully, based on what everybody’s expectation – i will be glad if it comes out today and wait is over after that.

    • T says:

      I passed Part 2 on my first attempt! Score is 10 points lower than for Part 1, but I know I made some stupid mistakes on the essay because of the stress and fatigue by the end of it. I confused my formulas a little on the last few questions. I answered all the MC questions on Part 2 compared to only answering about 90 MCs on Part 1. I guessed about 3-5 questions because I didn’t encounter similar questions in Gleim. I knew the formula but didn’t know how to use it the way the question was written. Now to just send in my experience, and I’ll be a CMA! 🙂

  • Kate says:

    I got the result!!

  • Alice says:

    Just got the score in email. Passed PART 2 with 410, the same score I got for PART 1 lol. Best wishes for everybody!

  • T says:

    Seems like for the last 2 exam windows, the scores are released exactly 6 weeks from the end of the month you tested in. So, I would say you can expect your score results exactly 6 weeks from the end of the month you tested in.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Yeah although IMA basically said timing really depends on each testing window (plus minus a few days). Somehow they are unable to commit a release date. Strange given the bigger guys such as CPA and CFA are able to do that…

  • Nidhi Hariyani says:

    460/500 in Part 1. Finally a CMA! 🙂

  • Hari says:

    Congratulations to all who cleared CMA exam. All the best for the people who couldn’t clear. Hard luck. Put in more efforts you will do well. Congratulations and all the best to those who cleared one part and going to appear for other part in future.

    I cleared CMA in Feb 2017.

    • Adithan says:

      Thanks Hari.. I vividly remember April.. Hope you are doing well.

      Cheers!!

      • Hari says:

        I am good Adithan. Thanks. Congratulations on successfully becoming a CMA. You had predicted right last time I did receive the Priscilla S Payne award for scoring the highest marks in a single window on both parts combined. Have a great career!!!

        • Adithan says:

          Wonderful on hearing that you had indeed received the award. Cheers for that Hari.

          Rock on ?

        • Stephanie Ng says:

          Hari you really should write us a guest post and tell us how you did it! 🙂 🙂
          (my email: stephanie@ipassthecmaexam.com)

        • Adithan says:

          And btw Hari, it is only very rare that you google someone and gets surprised.
          Just out of curiosity i google the award and the things i learnt about you just got me hooked up.
          1. K V Chandramouli award (ICAI)
          2. Associate member of ICAI (Cleared with a rank !!!)
          3. Your work at “Raising a Mathematician”

          And a faculty for ICAI courses too !,

          You are THE inspiration Hari,
          Massive respect.

          Cheers !

          • Stephanie Ng says:

            Wow, didn’t know that! I do remember Hari won the Priscilla S. Payne award for the CMA exam, which is really amazing. Cheers, Stephanie

          • Hari says:

            Thank you for those kind words Aadithan. I am one of the Co-Founders of Raising a Mathematician Foundation.

          • Not willng to disclose name says:

            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

          • Stephanie Ng says:

            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

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Thanks for sticking around and encouraging others Hari! Stephanie

  • RASHEED ALI says:

    VERY SAD. SCORED 350. FAILED BY 10 MARKS.

    • Adithan says:

      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 🙂

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Ohhh… 🙁
      But don’t give up, you are so close!

    • Pahlaj says:

      What you probably lacked is time management, spend more time on increasing accuracy level while attempting mocks at a better speed

  • Marlon says:

    I received a score of 320. Sigh. I am just hoping to clear Part 2. I look forward to those results in mid August.
    I will have to retake Part 1 in September. Congrats to all who passed the exams. You are indeed exceptional. I will just have to wait a little longer.

    Cheers 🙂

    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.

    • Marlon says:

      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.

      • Stephanie Ng says:

        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!

        • Marlon says:

          Thank you for your reply Stephanie. Makes sense. I am looking forward to my Part 2 results. Some candidates received their grades on August 11th but others like myself are still waiting.
          I also registered to take Part 1 again the end of September.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      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

  • Wei says:

    I took part 2 21st Jun. Hopefully I can get good news around 11th Aug. Fingers crossed.

    • Adithan says:

      Since 6 weeks ends on a Saturday(12th), the results may be on 11th or the subsequent Monday i.e 14th.

      Hoping it will be good.

      All the best 🙂

      • Pahlaj says:

        11th August it is. June 28th was the last day in May June testing window.

        • Brian says:

          The last several results came out exactly 42 days from the end of the month in a testing window. Do the results ever come out earlier than 42 days? Just wondering if its a possibility to get them before Friday.

  • Brian says:

    Hope to get my results for part 1 August 11 and finally become a CMA.

  • Leonora says:

    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..

    • Pahlaj says:

      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.

      • Stephanie Ng says:

        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 😉

      • Leonora says:

        Thanks Pahlaj and Stephanie!!! 🙂 Hope this doesn’t stop us from being friends, but i’m not a GOT fan.. 😀

        Failed.. 340! 🙁 Was in shock on Friday, cried yesterday and now recovered enough to start studying. I cant imagine putting in those long hours for P1 again.

        • Stephanie Ng says:

          Oh… Leonora that must be really frustrating. But I am glad you have recovered so quickly!
          Please spend some time to work on your game plan, identify the relatively weaker areas, and focus on those. You can do it!

    • Brian says:

      If it were me, I would retake part one before moving on to part 2. Especially if you haven’t already began studying for part 2. However, there is a good chance you will pass part one and be able to move on to part 2. Keep a positive attitude and hope for the best. Good luck!

  • Puneet says:

    any confirmation on the results tomorrow….

  • OMS says:

    What time would they release the results?

  • Puneet says:

    Last time its was around 10.30 am eastern time so may be in 4- 5 hours from now.

  • Megan says:

    I’m still waiting as well – have been checking the website and my email incessantly – I’m glad I’m not alone!

    I received part 1 results around 10 am for that testing window, but it’s past that time now. Hoping they still come through today, or this weekend is going to be painful.

  • cathy says:

    did anyone receive results

  • OMS says:

    These few hours are killing me more than the past weeks I’ve been waiting ??

  • Roy says:

  • Tamer says:

  • Ela says:

    I hope they´re not sending out first the batch of emails of people who passed and then the batch of people who failed. I´m start getting worried :-/

  • Megan says:

    For those of you who have received your results – when did you take it?

  • Tec says:

    6/28

    What about you?

  • Venkat says:

    I appeared on June 22nd and got the results…

    Even the myima in IMANET.org has also been updated

  • Tec says:

    How long between score release for each batch?

  • Tec says:

    Im waiting for Part 2 results. Who else is waiting for part 2?

    Goodluck to all!

  • wei says:

  • Em says:

  • Ash says:

    what happened?

  • Liliya says:

    I’ve recieved my results 2 hours ago, exam date 6/10. 370 for part 1 )) I don’t believe that

  • Megan says:

    Do you think they’ll post after 5pm?

    • Puneet says:

      Hi, its very unlikely they will post after 5 pm but it’s unfair to keep us waiting over the weekend. How many of us did not get the result?

      Lets file petition or something.,,,, lol

      • mquinnjr says:

        I didn’t get a result. I can picture the office where the government sourced temp running score batches goes, “Its 5, laterrrrr.”

      • mquinnjr says:

        Friday June 23, 2017 is when I sat for the test. Ive receive no score notice or refresh on the site.

  • SHANIJ says:

    Not yet received any email regarding the result. My exam date was 29/06/17 for Part-1 (UAE). On Saturdays and Sundays will they publish it ?

  • Ela says:

    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!!!!!

    Whatever, sorry for this I´m-so-pissed-of post. I wish you all guys good luck, have a great weekend (if possible) and talk to you on Monday 😉

    • mquinnjr says:

      This never happened when I took the CPA exam. Just awful administration by the team who runs this.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      No worries Ela you have every right to get frustrated by IMA’s arrangement. I would totally myself.
      This is the first time this happens as far as I can remember…

      • Adithan says:

        You got every right to be frustrated Ela,
        But don’t worry – things will be positive.

        As Stephanie has said, this is the first time i know of, that’s happening this way (may be mostly coz 42nd day fell on a saturday). But, still it would be a lame excuse.

        I wrote my parts during Feb, 2017 and May, 2017. and i got my result exactly on the 42nd day.

        Just hold up and be positive that they will release it on monday.

        Cheers and Best of luck 🙂

        • Ela says:

          Dear mquinnjr, Stephanie & Adithan,

          thank you for your reply and your kind words 🙂
          So here we go again today – let´s cross all available fingers!!

          🙂

  • OPL says:

    I got my confirmation Mail yesterday evening at 10:12pm (Central European Time).

    I passed with a score of 410 for part 1, which I took at the last day of the June testing window. I’m so happy to become officially a CMA (took part 2 in 2015).

    I hope you guys soon receive the confirmation mail! Fingers crossed

  • Ela says:

    correction: “about how IMA proceeds in the communication of the scores”.

    Apparently this is the first time, that batches got splitted into 2 days, Friday and Monday. So no previous experience available on this.

  • Michelle says:

    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.

  • Paul says:

    Sat for the part 1 exam June 27. Still waiting… Failed part 1 in February with a 330. Felt better about the exam this time. This is going to be a long weekend, time to go for a run.

  • Leonora says:

    OMG! Really sorry for everyone who has to go through this weekend without knowing the results!!! Hang in there and lets hope its good news!

  • Mahmoud says:

    i am glad to see there’re some people still waiting the results like me ^.^
    i dunno the reason of this **** delay : )

  • Jim says:

    So here we are, 8/14, waiting on scores from the June testing window. My guess is this will go late into the afternoon today.

    • Ela says:

      Hi Jim,

      in 4 minutes the IMA office opens – my guess (and hope) is that sending out the remaining batches will be the first task the people at IMA office will tackle today!

      so let´s see what happens today.
      Best of luck to everyone and finger crossed!!

      • Ela says:

        Ok, I can already tell you: I think I was wrong with my guess lol

        • Michelle says:

          Ela, have you heard? I truly hope it is good news for you if you have.

          • Ela says:

            Hi Michelle, yes I heard, but unfortunately no good news for me (i-hate-mondays!)

            But congrats to you!!! Great job!! :-))))

          • Michelle says:

            I am sorry Ela. If it helps, it took me two tries to pass Part 1 and then I barely squeaked by passing Part 2 (370). Keep with it and the best of luck to you!

      • Jim says:

        Just got my score, passed Part 1 with a 370. Happy with the result, not with the CMA administration. They need to do a better job in future testing cycles.

        Good luck to everyone.

  • Marky says:

    The result is already out. I passed part 2. Thanks to the Lord..

  • Puneet says:

    Gt the result passed part 2

  • Marlon says:

    I passed Part 2. I’m so happy! I don’t care about the wait anymore. Just so happy I passed.

  • Michelle says:

    Just got my results and I passed Part 2! Still consider how the IMA handled this was not professional.

  • Natalie says:

    Passed Part 2 ( both done now) . Hurra ! The last step in the dashboard ” earn your CMA “. What does it mean ? Any submit form? Additional fee? what is the procedure to obtain the certificate ?

    • Natalie says:

      How can I request the paper cerificate if all requirements are fullfilled ? Thanks !

    • Richard says:

      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!

      • Natalie says:

        Thank you , just need to wait for the reward then ! Congratulation!

        • Stephanie Ng says:

          I’d also like to take the opportunity to congratulate Marky, Jim, Puneet, Marlon, Michelle, Natalie, Paul, Didi, and Rochelle. I usually send my congrats notes individually but because of this year’s frustrating score release situation, our comment section is getting really long. So I decided to send you my hugs and kisses in one go 😉 Excellent work all of you!

          For those who can’t make it this time, do remember that the pass rates are low: 35% / 50% for Part 1/2, so please don’t feel like you are the only one out there… please take the time to revisit your game plan, identify the weaker areas, and laser-focus on them. You can all do it! Reach out to us if we can be helpful! Stephanie

          • Marky says:

            Got already by CMA badge…I was able to complete the program in 7 months…Focus is the key aspect. Congrats everyone.

          • Stephanie Ng says:

            Congrats Marky! It’s awesome work that you can complete in 7 months! Thanks for showing us that it’s doable. All the best to you, Stephanie

  • Rochelle Carvalho says:

    Passed part 1.. I am a qualified CMA as I had passed part 2 in February 2017. Thank you God and my parents.

  • Saj says:

    Hi, no one is here to share the feeling of waiting for the result? I have appeared for PART 1 in September 2017 and part 2 in October 2017. Waiting for the results.

  • Sathish varadhan says:

    Hi! Can u help with this question please! Is there a limit of number of attempts one can take the cma exam part 1 ! Have failed already thrice now! Can u suggest any reading material please! Been following wiley,however the questions in exam was far more advanced what was there in the wiley materials or question bank

    • Sandeep says:

      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:

      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

  • Saj says:

    I used Gleim. I think it covers more than the CMA syllabus and seems good. Especially MCQ. But I did not use any other material. So I cannot compare.

  • Saj says:

    I am in my fortys and living in UAE. Exams were okay even though essays of part 1 was a bit tough. We will see when the result is out. Since this is my first attempt, I have to wait for the result and see.

  • SMT says:

    Hello,

    When do people usually begin to see their results? I took Part 1 in September and am anxiously waiting for my results.

  • Saj says:

    Anybody got CMA result?

  • Saj says:

    I got my result of first part 1. Passed with 420 marks

  • Marlon says:

    I received my result for Part 1. I had failed on my first attempt but now I have PASSED and am NOW A CMA. Thanks to the Almighty, My Parents and Supporters. Good luck to all.
    Stephanie your forum is very beneficial, allowing like-minded individuals to share experiences, advise others, vent, etc. in an environment where everyone is on the same page. It’s brilliant. Thank you and keep up the great endeavours.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      First of all congratulations Marlon! And I am so glad you are now a CMA. Thanks for the encouragement. I will keep working hard on my site 🙂
      All the best to you! Stephanie

  • Robert says:

    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!

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Great job Robert! Hey you only need to pass to become a CMA 😉
      Most seem to stick with Gleim if they are successful with it the first time. So agree with your plan. Cheers, Stephanie

  • Tec says:

    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.

    Waiting for October window results!

    Ma’am When results are to be announced

  • Paul says:

    Gettting anxious for the score release on Tuesday (hopefully released on Tuesday). Took Part 1 in February and failed with a 330, retook in June and passed. Sat for Part 2, and felt good about the exam. Starting to get nervous, good luck to everyone.

  • economunist says:

    What time would they release the results?

  • MK says:

    Anybody got CMA result?

  • MK says:

    Hi All

    Any update… Waiting is killing me!

  • Yasin says:

    Wht dont they announce the results ?

  • Paul says:

    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.

    Just an observation that unless I make a comment in this section, I am unable to view latest comments. The last comment I can see is of Nov 11 2017.
    Don’t know if others face the same issue.

  • Sathish Kumar S says:

    Got the results and cleared part 2 with a score of 440. Earlier passed part 1 in Feb’17. Feeling happy for the results and congratulations to all those who have cleared the exams. Thanks to Almighty.

  • Ocean says:

    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)

    Thank you, Stephanie and the team for this amazing blog.

    CMA exam resuts for October 2017 test window is out just today

  • Puneet says:

    Thanks to almighty!!!!!!!! Passed Part 1,Already cleared part 2 during Aug-17.. thanks Stephanie. Your forum is a source of great motivation to aspiring CMA’s…

    Can anyone please advice the process to get CMA certificate from now on…

  • Paul says:

    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!”

  • AnAngryBCEagle says:

    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.

    Sorry about my grammar and spellings

  • S says:

    Please can any one shed some light on submitting educational transcripts? I studied from University of Madras and I don’t know if they will send a mail to IMA with my educational transcripts.

    Please advise how is it done actually?

    Thanks

    • Paul says:

      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.

    • Stephanie Ng says:

      Hi S, you can ask your school to send in the transcript directly to the IMA. If it’s an issue (which could be in some part of the world), IMA may accept a certified copy. Please contact them if that’s the case. Cheers, Stephanie

  • Umair Hayat says:

    I have passed both exams, submitted my experience and education documents, everything is updated in my profile as well.

    now in my dash board all icons are green except the last one “earn you CMA” which is blue, what should I do next?

  • Beth says:

    Can anyone explain where in the dashboard it will show if I passed or not? I sat for part 1 in January, and I’m not expecting results for at least another week, but I want to know where to look when the time comes.

  • SMT says:

    Anyone see Jan 2018 results yet?

  • Beth says:

    Has anyone gotten January 2018 results yet? I can’t log-in to the IMA site.

  • MO says:

    Hai.. i have done my CMA part one exm in june 2018. Tomorrow is the 42 nd day. So where can i see the examination result online on my ima profile. Anyone please help me. Thank you

    • Meghan D says:

      I don’t think the CMA exam scores have been released yet. Did you check your IMA profile today? That’s where they’ll release your score.

  • Hui says:

    How do you find out your score? Do they have a score release page like CPA?

    • Meghan D says:

      No, the IMA doesn’t have a score release page (like the CPA Exam does). Check your IMA profile as that’s where your scores will be released.

  • AjayTakiar says:
