CGA students will write the same Integrated Case Study (ICS) at management level students. This will test your application based on the content from the management level papers P2, E2 and F2.
Prospective CGA students who have previously attempted and failed any CIMA exam, must pass that 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.
Once you have passed you will be awarded the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting and be granted exemptions from all certificate, operational and management level exams in CIMA Professional Qualification. Once you pass the assessment, you can then enter the CIMA professional qualification at the strategic level.
