CGA students will write the same Integrated Case Study (ICS) at the management level. This exam will test your application based on the content from the management level papers P2, E2 and F2.
Once you have passed you will be awarded the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting and can then enter the CIMA professional qualification at the strategic level.
Prospective CGA students who have previously attempted and failed any CIMA exam, must pass the unsuccessful paper before being eligible for this route. For example, if a student attempts a CIMA subject and is unsuccessful, they must re-write until successful before being able to attempt the CGA route.
