Any CIMA Student ..... ???
AOA! I am about to pass out my A-level, and i am willing to go for CIMA studies in 'Zenith College of Accountancy & Management', Lahore.

Can any CIMA student tell me that...
1.) I go for CIMA directly after A-level or after doing graduation ?
2.) If i go for CIMA after A-level, will there be more difficult to study ?

Help me Please guide me ....!

Well I am not a student but u will probably find this useful. Firstly u can directly go for CIMA after ur A's. Secondly u dont need bachelors for a solid foundation, CIMA's foundation level gives u that plus u can study for CIMA and a B.Com at the same time if u wish. ACCA however, has a bachelors degree from OB University so if u go for ACCA you dont need to do B.Con or BBA to be a graduate.

Well I am not a student OF CIMA, I m a student of ICMAP but u will probably find this useful. Firstly u can directly go for CIMA after ur A's. Secondly u dont need bachelors for a solid foundation, CIMA's foundation level gives u that plus u can study for CIMA and a B.Com at the same time if u wish. ACCA however, has a bachelors degree so if u go for ACCA you dont need to do B.Com or BBA to be a graduate. and there is a professional diploma about accounts name as "pipfa" abbreviated as "Pakistan Institute Of Public finance Accountants". It is a 1 1\2 (one & half year) diploma . It is affiliated with INSTITUTE OF COST & MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANT(ICMAP) ,CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT(CA) & AUDITOR GENERAL OF PAKISTAN(AGP). AFTER COMPLETION OF DIPLOMA, U WILL GET THE GOVT JOB UNDER BPS-16 GRADE.

salaam all,
hey Nabeel, zenith college is probably the best for CIMA qualification in pakistan ... as far as ur queries matter, well, graduation is never a pre-requisite for CIMA if u r A-levels. yes u can join it directly. n dont worry, u will not have ne problem in understanding cima, it is designed so tht it hlps ppl comming from ne background ... u will b quite comfortable, but, according 2 me, a graduation will definetly give u some edges

1) unless u complete ur cima, u r unable 2 get a job ( u will not b able 2 earn nething ... plus, cima imposses a requirement of 3-yrs-job for getting u full ACMA membership ... since cima iz never a hot cake, u can never b sure tht u will complete all tht pprs in a one go... u might have 2 repeat a couple of pprs or so ... so it can extend in terms of time ... n after u complete pprs, u still need another 3 years to become an ACMA ... so u will not b able to do the jobs tht address ACMAs (

2) if u have a professional graduation degree in ur hands, preferably BBA/B.Comm(Honors)/BA(economics) or other business related degree (preferably on accountinf/finance side), thn u can get some usefull exemptions in cima!!! it will accelerate ur progress in becomming ACMA!!!

3) the same condition (2) further helps u tht u can start a job after graduation, n continue ur cima along with the job ... n this is the strategy tht 99% ppl do ... it gives u an advantage tht u dont have ne pressure of cima upon u, u can do it at ur own pace, without tension, n all of ur job, tht u will b doing in the mean while; shall b counted in the 3-yrs-experience requirement of CIMA n u shall get ur membership very soon after u pass ur pprs!!! so u will not need additional 3 yrs for getting ACMA.

4) being a graduate always iz a plus in ur career ... coz in this fast-paced-era, competition iz very hard n it will hlp u in getting promotions as well ... n in case u need an MBA degree in future, u shall b elegible for joining it as well on the basis of ur graduation (n not on the basis of cima!!!) ... almost all the management accounting qualifications always encourage its members for mba,eg, cima has collaborations with Henley Business School of UK. n specially in pakistan, degrees have always had great importance in getting promotions into higher management. so u will b never on a loosing end by ne means if u do a graduation.

Totall agree with Farhan that in today's globalised world, at least an undergraduate degree is MUST. CIMA itself is quite rapidly increasing field but I would say that if you hold a good bachelors from good institution, then you would certainly be placed in much different position.

Correction... CIMA is NOT a degree, its a professional qualification, and ofcourse it originated from UK, and NOT Canada...

If a person wants to do CIMA, there's no point in joining ICMAP first for three years and then claiming exemptions for CIMA... If one wishes to do CIMA, it's better to directly start CIMA, and later if you think having a local qualification is a plus point, you can claim exemptions for ICMA as you'll get more exams exempted.

salaam all,
yes yes, CIMA is a professional qualification like ACCA, CA, CFA etc etc etc n not a degree ... i agree tht one does not need to join ICMAP if CIMA is the goal ... instead i add one thing .. tht if u become CIMA ... i mean ACMA(CIMA,UK) ... then ICMAP gives full exemptions in all the pprs!!!! u can apply for the membership of ICMAP without ne other pre-requisite!!!!! i was told this info by the ICMAP officials on e-mail
so a better idea is to go for CIMA straight away ...
one last thing, a request, tht plz dont call this qualification as CIMA; it is ACMA(UK) n CIMA is the institute tht provides this ... u can write ACMA(UK) or ACMA(CIMA,UK) after ur name once u get this mmbrship

seconadly if writing initials of qualifications is concerned any one can write the followin
M.B.B.A.F.C.A= may be a future Chartered Accountant

I disagree with one thing... If a student has done A levels from a commerce background, it gives him some edge above other students, but doesn't mean that CIMA would be easy for him/her...

A levels Accountancy is quite tough but there's no way that CIMA would become 'easy' for that person.

Sumaaan, by saying that having done accountancy at A Levels the writer could have meant that the CIMA could get relatively easier to understand.
I mean it's a similar concept that having done Maths and Further Maths A Levels, a degree in any numerical concept like Engineering could be easier to understand than otherwise.
I would also agree with Sumaaan, that having studied the subject at a lower level doesn't result in becoming ease for the higher level studies.
