CMA Exam Results: 2020 Score Release Dates

CMA exam results

Have you recently taken the CMA exam and now you are wondering when you will get your results? This is a common question that many candidates have after taking the CMA. As you know, there are two parts to the CMA exam and most people do not take them back to back. This means, you probably are waiting on the results from CMA Part 1 before you take CMA part 2.

Whatever your personal situation, if you have questions about the CMA exam results and the time it takes to get them, I hope to clear it all up for you in this post. Continue to reading to learn about CMA results, the formula for getting results, and even tips on what to do while you are waiting on the results.

CMA Results 2020: The Formula

You’ve taken the CMA exam or part of it, and now you’re playing the waiting game. They say the waiting is truly the hardest part and while this may be true, there are some things you can do while you wait. I’ll give you a list seven to-do’s, in fact, if you stick with me to the end of this post. First, let’s talk about those exam results.

So, when can you expect your CMA exam results? It’s easy to figure out. 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 from this date. Furthermore, the mail will come in 2-3 weeks after that with the print version of your results.

CMA Exam Score Release: Why Such a Long Wait?

Now I know what you are probably thinking: why is it such a long wait? This is because the exam isn’t fully computerized. They may be one day, but for now, it’s all still done the old-fashioned way. 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. So all in all, it’s about as quick as you can expect these days. Before you even take the exam, you may want to do some research into pass rates. You also need to study with a reliable study guide to ensure you pass on the first try. Check out the reviews on this site to help you choose the best study guide and materials for your needs.

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

CMA Exam Pass Rates: 2019 CMA Pass Rates

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

The Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA) released stats for 2017-2018 that show a 40% pass rate for Part 1 and a 50% pass rate for Part 2. How does it compare to other accounting exams? Well, the pass rates for the CMA are actually lower than those for other accounting exams that are often deemed more difficult, like the CPA and CFA.

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

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

Now that you know you’re going to be waiting on those exam results and there is nothing you can do to hurry them along, the next best thing you CAN do is keep yourself occupied. 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. Seriously, so many people immerse themselves in the study process for weeks and even months leading up to the exam day, so now is your chance to reconnect with those close to you. Go out with friends, spend some quality time with family, or do something nice for yourself.

2. Give Yourself a Well-Deserved Break

It’s time to unwind! As I said, you’ve probably been deep in the study sessions for a long time now. It’s finally time to take a break. 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. Win-win!

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? Ask yourself:

Should I increase or decrease study hours?

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

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

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. Since the experience requirement is a big part of getting the CMA certification, it’s never too early to start planning how you will obtain it.

You are required to provide a description of your daily work. 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. This is a major motivation for why many people get certified. 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. It’s never too soon to start planning your career path and with the CMA exam behind you, you’re one step closer.

6. Research Another Certification?

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

7. CMA CPE Courses

Most people wait until after getting the CMA exam results to do this, but if you want complete planning you can explore the CPE requirements and available courses (see below for help). Once you get your CMA certification, you will need to have regular CPE credits to maintain it. You can certainly start planning now when and how you will get these credits.

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

CMA Score Advice: Reader’s Question

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

As for when to study the next part, unless you are quite sure you fail the Part 1, I encourage that you take a few days for a 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 with other commitments, then the waiting time is a great opportunity to clear up your to-do list, and give Part 2 a fresh start.

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

CMA Score: Understanding Your CMA Exam Score Results

Waiting on the scores is one thing, but once you finally get those scores back, you’re going to need to know how to read them. Many candidates say the only part more nerve-wracking than the weeks leading up to the exam date, is the time waiting for the results to come back.

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

Except, not passing on the CMA isn’t exactly the same as failure.

The CMA exam is a criterion-referenced test, which means it is not a simple pass/fail when it comes to scoring. If the scoring confuses you, don’t worry about it too much. I will try to give you a basic run-down of how it all works, however.

How the CMA Exam Is Scored

The certified management accountant (CMA) offered by the IMA in the US consists of a 2-part exam. In each part, there are 100 multiple choice questions and two essays. In terms of the CMA exam grading system, around 75% of the score is allocated to the multiple-choice and the rest to the essay.

Next, the proportion of time given is the same: 3 hours for multiple choice and 1 hour for essays.

Candidates can get a score ranging from 0 – 500, with 360 being the passing score. The panel of experts involved intentionally set the bar high so that those who pass will reflect positively on the profession as a whole.

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

Here is a video explaining this:

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

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

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

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

      However, Luckily i was able to proceed to Essay section as well and was comfortable in answering all essay section questions.

      Do you think any chance of clearing part 2 as i have not done well in MCQ part.

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.

        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.

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.

      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.

        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.

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?

Reply
    Stephanie Ng says February 7, 2016

    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

      I used the Gleim prep material which was excellent, in my opinion.

      I focused on the MCQs and tried to ensure I hit atleast 80%-85% in the mock tests.
      They also have a good essay bank that I read through to get a sense of the different types of questions and how to structure crisp responses.

      I was a little worried about my essay section because I missed a question at the end due to bad time management but I guess I did well enough on the other questions and the MCQs to get through.

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?

David says November 10, 2016

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

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!

Reply
    Stephanie Ng says November 10, 2016

    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.

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

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.

Reply
    Stephanie Ng says November 11, 2016

    Yes, in the past the results were released on Friday or Monday, but things seem to be different in 2016. But yes, if no release today, then it’s quite likely early next week.

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.

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.

Reply
    Stephanie Ng says November 11, 2016

    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.

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

    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.
