May 2013 CMA Case Exam Results

July 9th Note: Now that marks are out and people are curious about pass rates, I added a poll on the right hand side to see how many have passed the exam (sort of my own informal pass rate for case master visitors). Please take a second to check off whether you have passed or not. Thank you! 



To those that are awaiting the May 2013 CMA Case Exam results, I heard that this time results will likely be released about 8 weeks post exam rather than after 6 weeks as some may be expecting.

It is now the 8th week so results should be in any day now - good luck and let me know how you did!!

  3. Waiting is agony.

  4. Can't wait to get over this, the waiting game is painful. Lets hope the results are released by Friday.

    Is each student going to receive an e-mail or how do we know the results are out?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I still think we'll get the results tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  6. The last 2 weeks of waiting were horrible- i am checking my email constantly- no news.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Still waiting, I am starting to lose hope though, maybe tomorrow or Friday?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  8. At least if they would send an email giving us a scheduled date. Every time my red light blinks on my phone I panic!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. where will the results be published? cma-cpp.com? cma canada website? other?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I just called CMA and the gentleman said that they are expecting to receive the results this week, and that he personally will be sending out notification emails, letting us know how and where to find the exam marks.

    1. Did you call CMA Ontario?

  11. Last year noone was informed (in Saskatchewan anyways), marks were posted on the CMA-Sask or CMA Canada website under "news" as a link on the home page.
    If you didnt hear about it from a friend you didnt find out for about a month later then everyone else when marks were finally mailed out!

    ReplyDelete
  12. the wait is terrible!!! They should've given us an exact date!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Funny how the deadline to pay our dues is a fixed date, yet they gives us the 6-8 weeks approximate timeline.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I heard from the CMA Manitoba office to expect them on the 15th. I hope that was just frustration due to the multiple inquiries about the marks over the past few weeks.

    1. I am pretty sure that they just threw a date out...15th is almost 10 weeks

  15. When is the re-write? August? I'm hoping I won't need to, but the later we get the exam results, the less time we have to prepare should we need to re-write.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Re-write is exactly 6 weeks today (August 13th)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Marks are being released July 8 or 9. Unofficial announcement from one of the CMA offices.

    Check CMA Canada website for the release Monday or Tuesday even if you do not get an email from your CMA provincial office.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Which office? I called Ontario yesterday and was told that they were going to be released by the end of this week.

      Delete
  18. The contact person at CMA QUEBEC just told me mid-July!!!! I hope she has no idea :))

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why doesn't anyone have an answer? Wouldn't a release date make sense?

    ReplyDelete
  20. In BC, if you fail, you are required to take a mandatory exam prep course before re-writing... its scheduled for THIS weekend.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess its going to get postponed. I don't think the marks will come out until next week

      Delete
  21. I wish there was a mandatory prep course in QC because otherwise, I don't know if I could do any better than the first time. I am not even sure there is a prep course available at this time, and in English.

    Yes, it's not right that they don't have a clear release date.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If this weren't so serious it would be funny as hell.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is ridiculous. Given all the money they demand, a little quid pro quo in the form of timely evaluations is not too much to ask!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A quick email stating the status of the results will be greatly appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  25. According to CMA NL marks will be out July 8th after 1pm on Cma-Canada.org

    ReplyDelete
  26. The only information CMA BC gives out is that they are not yet available but they will let us know when they are! I wonder what the hold up is?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I received the following information from CMA Ontario:
    “Results should be coming out next week during the whole week. You will be sent an email.”

    In regards to the mandatory CMA Case Examination Preparation Session:
    “The dates are as follows July 14/2013 – Toronto July 13/2013 – Ottawa”

    1. When I contacted CMA Ontario they said results should be posted before the weekend...

    2. Funny how different people are giving different dates....I don't get why the secrecy?!? Why not give out the exact date....not impressed at all

      Delete
    3. I don't think it is secrecy as much as just lack of knowledge. I beleive the Provincial Offices are probably the second last to know.. us being the last to know.

      Delete
    4. I contacted CMA Canada and they referred me back to the local office, the local office said they were waiting for the results from CMA Canada, so who knows!!

  28. According to CMA Alberta, results will be released next week sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I feel for everyone here who is awaiting results. We received our results after 6 weeks and even that felt like forever at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Word on the street from another forum is that the results will be posted today between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. I hope we get them today. Good luck everyone!

  31. Fingers crossed. I can't believe how nervous I am. I can't imagine getting my mind in gear to prep for a rewrite. Good luck all!

    1. Exactly! If it were just another exam without an impact on continuing the program, it would be much better. You can always retake an exam, but not in such a short time and with such serious conséquences. Plus, how much better can I really do??

  32. Looks like they are deciding how many students shoud attend Mandatory session and trying to make class rooms full of students in each location.

    6. I'm so disappointed with CMA.

      I've always backed them up when being compared with the other accounting designations, but this is just ridiculous. How can you be so unorganized? You could have at least send us a notice that results will be a little late this year - I've waited 8 weeks already, I really don't care about waiting an extra couple days.

      But really? No notification? Nothing?
      All of a sudden now that membership dues are paid, the entire organization seems to be on vacation.

      Maybe this is why CMA was never able to compete with the CA's. Not because of the material and quality of candidates, but the lack of organization in the committee as a whole.

      Management Accountants that can't manage themselves.

      Delete
    7. Maybe I'm the one you should all be blaming as I have yet to pay my annual dues :)

      Delete
    2. I am with everyone else here. All other professional bodies disclose the date on which the results will be made available. CMA gives you a timeframe and then totally ignores their time frame all the while ignoring any form of communication. I think a lot of people are also frustrated with the fact that everyone is getting different answers from their provincial bodies. I guess we wait and hope its Monday

      Delete
    3. Really? At the very least for the 5k Yr1 SLP fees and the $455 membership dues, they could send out a general e-mail saying "we are experiencing technical issues and apologise for the anxiousness it is causing, we are doing our best to resolve the issue and the marks will be released on blank date”. Communicate! Communicate! Communicate!

      Delete
  44. Best? all they had to do is just send an email to everyone saying it is delayed by one week or two. I don't think anybody would have complained. One aspect of management is communication. But there is no communication at all from CMA. this is not right

    ReplyDelete
  45. I remember the CA was doing a countdown on Facebook until the results were out for UFE, there was a precise date and time for the release.

  91. I think most people passed - I would be curious about the pass rate per province. Are these going to be published?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Check out the new poll on the top right hand side of the blog. I added an informal pass rate poll for case master visitors.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would venture to say the type of person reading the blog is someone who passed so not sure about the polls accuracy. It does seem like an extremely high pass rate but no point in guessing if CMA does not release data on it. After the entrance exam a lot of people were saying that the passing grade should be raised to 70% to have a higher quality CMA candidates.

    ReplyDelete
  94. are you crazy make the passing rate to 99.99%

    1. I found that going through the successful case exam solutions from prior years really helped me to develop a quick and efficient format for displaying information in the appendices. This is where most of my time usually got used. If you can come up with a quick format for displaying ratios,NPV and an action plan that will help free up some time. Also it was helpful for me to type the headings in my paper as soon as the exam starts, that way you don't miss a section. When you're reading the additional information, mark the pros and cons and preferences and immediately put them in your paper, this way you don't have to re-read the alternative and time the info again.

      Finally memorize as much as you can around your ratios and their explanation , swot, stakeholders, and case facts.

      Best of luck in Aug!

    2. Dorothy's prep course in Toronto is great - she takes you thru the best way to get the most mark in the least amount of time.

  96. Focus on getting your links. I keep a little 'tick-tally' and every time I have a link I add a tick, this just helps me ensure I'm meeting the link requirements. It's so easy to lose track of them. Definitely go in with a template introduction/conclusion in mind. Saves time. Type your format headings as soon as you get there and make sure you have something under every heading.

    Another time saving trick is to type the formula exactly as your would in your calculation as your audit trail. Then just copy and past the formula in the cell where you actually want the calculation. Amazing how much time that can save.

    Do your ratio analysis ahead of time. Make sure you can give a solid explanation of them. I even memorized my explanation just to ensure I'd have it down pat.

    I hope this made sense and helps!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Just touch all the sections(Don't go too deep in any section as you will be out of time and miss other sections). Make sure you have good Situational Analysis, implementation Plan and integration points

  98. They will never raise the bar to 70%. I think even the CA has it to only 65%.

  99. Hi, I failed as well...terrible feeling. I am not sure where to star and how to get ready for the next one.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I was (luckily!) very successful on the case exam...My strategy for studying was to redo all the previous year's cases multiple times to get a rhythm down and to improve my quants. I started by entering the headings based on the better successful examples given (if you look at the examples, at least in earlier years, there's a very good successful attempt, an average successful attempt, and an unsuccessful attempt).

    Once I had the headings in, I would read the case and fill in any information I came across directly while also highlighting it. This saved me tons of time on SWOT, alternatives, and pros and cons. While I didn't pay much attention to links, I filled in any I noticed as I was going, then went back a few times while writing to fill in any that came to mind.

    As other people have mentioned, do your ratios ahead of time and understand what they mean for the company. Also, figure out a good audit trail technique that won't take up tons of time. ]

    Good luck!

  101. Hi,
    My biggest problem is the limited functions in secure exam spreadsheet. I believe I consumed a lot of time working on the quants to make sense by putting dollar signs besides each number if required. Anybody knows if there is anyway I can use a spreadsheet from the secure exam site to practice on a daily basis? I don't feel confident about the copy and paste function either.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Don't waste time on formatting of numbers. As long as you have the decimal places you want you're all good. They're not looking for a perfectly presentable document; they're looking at your ability to analyze and to come up with a convincing proposal based on that analysys (ie. integration, feasibility).

      Delete
    2. It is really easy to get lost in the quants, I totally understand. I got 68% by typing something in each section as I read the case - you don't have time to read and re-read and write later. First thing you do - put the titles down and as you read, you fill in the blanks. Don't leave anything blank. For quants, I only did 2 options, out of 4. I know I got a weak score, but it worked. Secure exam sucks, the excel part is horrible but we have no choice. Do not worry about formatting under any circumstance!! Just put some numbers down to show them your train of thought. That's all that is needed.

    3. I truly appreciate your advise. I didn't get to work on Dier Trail alternative at all. I thought that was my biggest mistake. But it seems what ever I do, must make sense to base my recommendations on. This really helped.
      Thanks again!

  102. You were able to practice with all your assignments and practice cases using secure exam before. If your moderator did not bring this to your attention or coach you to be familiar with the tool in advance....then....

    ReplyDelete
  103. Yes you can use Securexam to practice. Just select the "practice case exam" in the list of exams and use that. For that one it will save in word & excel format after you exit. Also you will need to "get licenses" the next time you use secure exam again, because for some reason once you use practice case exam, it's no longer in the list anymore. So each time you want to use it, you need to update the licenses.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, I have started doing this. I hope I don't get in trouble by seeking licenses too many times:) Thank you for the suggestion.

  104. I was only able to calculate two out of four quants and was not successful. I thought it was more important to do a financial forecast and show my recommendation was financially feasible with financing, met the target and improved the profit margin. I touched on every other aspect of a consulting report -Comments from the marker were not helpful, as some comments were incorrect in several areas!- I am so confused on where to go from here - What can be left out in order to get a pass??

    1. May 2014. You'll be contacted by CMA early 2014 about the rewrite. It's in the fine print of the email CMA sent with the announcement that marks were out. You're access to the CPP site will also be cut off.

  109. Got my mark today...failed with a worse mark. I am not happy...paying extra and getting nothing.Why couldn't they give us our marks before this year started? The whole SLP year 1 was a waste of time...Why wait until we are months into the program to state what is expected....I give up. It's too late to start year 1 over now.

    1. I failed as well, and I share your frustration, the next 7 months are going to be long and cold until the May 7 re-write. Here is a little unsolicited advice:
      1. Be angry - $5,000 spent. That’s a lot of money and time to have spent with nothing to show for.
      2. Now What? - I spent the last week questioning whether I have what it takes to pass the case exam, should I quit and find another line of work.
      3. What happened - I asked myself, if my class mates who are no more capable then I can pass what’s my problem? That question is unique to each individual; my issue was an accounting supervisor contract job which bled into study time (year end audit, extreme staff issues and a boss who was not supportive in granting me time off for studying). As well, not to bash the moderators, but we were not taught how to tie the quantitative to the qualitative for the case exam. What I mean is that the elements of the quants were not adequately linked to the narrative in the PROS/CONS, the recommendations and the financial forecast. Key elements of the case exam.
      4. What to do – Don’t give up! The bad news is there is 7 months to the May 2014 exam; the good news is that there is 7 months to the May 2014 exam. Plenty of time to study and get comfortable with the exam.
      a) Review the comments provided by the CMA, critical to understand what you did wrong.
      b) Re-read implementation plan, Situational Analysis Tool, Pro forma Financial Statements, Steps for Approaching Business and Corporate Strategy
      c) If you have access to the CMA AP site, review Segment 2, module 4: Capital budgeting, Relevant Costing and Variances
      d) Review prior years exam 2011 and on (IFRS ASPE) read the alternatives, drill down how the quants were calculated and review how they were incorporated into the PROS/CONS, recommendations and the financial forecast

      5. Success or Failure – If you follow these suggestions and work hard, there is no reason why you won’t be successful next July.

    2. I'm surprised to hear your moderators did not teach you how to tie the quantitative to the qualitative. I'm in Manitoba, and our moderators drilled that into us at every interactive session. Focus on getting links! I kept a tally to ensure I was getting enough links. For every link, I'd mark a tick. It's so easy to lose track while writing the exam. Also, ensure no bias! Equal pros to cons when doing your quantitative. The actual numbers you derive almost seem secondary. They want to see your thought process.
