Earlier in 2015 syllabus OCS exams we were required eg.
Technical skills – 64%
Business skills – 16%
People skills – 14%
Leadership skills – 6%
Now as i read the blue print we are required to just get score of 80 out of 150
My question is will we still require to score 1/3 in each of these skills along with scaled score for the new 2020 feb ocs exam?.
there are the following outcomes in 2019 blueprint-
The six core activities are:
A. Prepare costing information for different purposes to meet the needs of management. B. Prepare budget information and assess its use for planning and control purposes.
C. Analyse performance using financial and non financial information.
D. Apply relevant financial reporting standards and corporate governance, ethical and tax principles.
E. Prepare information to support short-term decision-making.
F. Prepare information to manage working capital.
Now the blueprint says-
Marking, grading and feedback
The Case Study Examinations are human marked.
The Case Study results will contain the following information:
w Grade: Pass or fail w Scaled score: 0 to 150 with 80 and above being a pass
There is no requirement to obtain a pass or meet a minimum threshold for each core activity.
Feedback on performance against each core activity will be provided so that learners know their areas of weakness for further study
So overall as per my understanding will i be just required to score 80 out of 150 to pass the exam? Can you please confirm this with relevant Cima authority.
Hi, thanks for your question but I can only really comment on matters related to CIMA P1.
However, I do agree with you -from what you have posted it looks like the minimum competencies requirement has been taken away but I cant confirm or deny this -I’m afraid – I’ll update this post if we get any info from CIMA to help with this
