I have passed F3, P3, E3 and only had to pass Strategic case study exam to complete CIMA.
Now, because CIMA has changed the syllabus, I’m extremely dissatisfied, demotivated and frustrated with CIMA and I’m thinking about leaving it and joining a better and more recognized qualification, ACCA.
Studying another new syllabus from the very start for years just to find out CIMA changes everything again is not an option.
All the time and efforts I have put into studying CIMA were all useless and all in vain.
By changing the syllabus, CIMA has invalidated all the hard work I have done and all the time I put into studying and so, even though I’m not into auditing, detailed taxation and financial accounting and prefer business roles, especially management consulting, I feel there is no other choice but to switch to ACCA.
Has anybody moved from CIMA to ACCA/ACA?
Any stories are welcome.

This is really dumb. CIMA changed their syllabus in November and you are writing this post in May. If you have passed your strategic level objective test exams during that time, then you will have sat them on the new syllabus. If you sat them on the old syllabus, there was a period where you could have sat your case study exam on the old syllabus. Either way, the ball was in your court.
Plus its not like they change every aspect of the syllabus, they just add a few topics and remove a few, so it’s hardly like all of your studying will have gone out of the window. They also provide documentation that guides you through changes to the syllabus in order for you to be well equipped to complete the qualification so your post above is a lame attempt for attention – I pity any future employers if yours if you are a stones through away from becoming a qualified accountant and are so clueless

Nope, the ball wasn’t in my court at all.
I did pass all my strategic level OT by the fall 2019 and did sit SCS in November, lacking some marks to pass and then the same happening again in February 2020. It wasn’t until April that I received the results.
I wish you show some respect and consideration towards others, otherwise I pity any people who have to deal with you.
Have you yourself seen the changes? I have. They are so large that it’s like beginning a level from the very start.
Clueless? For real? LOL.
If you have nothing to say, then better do remain silent.
