It's the night before your CIMA exam and you're nervous and unsure how to proceed. Should you stay up and try and cram in as much extra revision as possible? Should you get an early night? Should you go for a run to try and clear your mind?
We've all been there - it can be a tricky decision. Many of us end up buckling under the pressure and trying to revise as much as possible until the early hours - but time and time again studies have shown this is not the best approach. Read on to find out how you can make the most of your pre-exam evening and set yourself up for CIMA success the next day!
Revising during the
holidays can be tricky. If you celebrate Christmas, you may find
yourself reading through the CIMA pre-seen between canapés and

and get that all important pass in the New Year!
So, read on to find
out how to revise well and still keep that festive spirit!

Take it from me, as a CIMA student, it's important to know how other students are performing so you can asses your own approach to revision.

Trust me, signing up for an online course will mean the difference between you passing and failing your exam. When striving to succeed in a CIMA exam, going it alone without the support of an online tutor, is not a good idea - as one of our recent graduates will contest!
