    Hi All,

     

    I noticed a few people inquiring about results from September testing. I sat for the Part 1 exam on September 16 and received my results email yesterday. Thankfully I passed.

     

    Best wishes for success to all candidates!

     

    Regards,

    CMA Exam Grading - Scaled Score

    Aloha Everyone,

    I recently sat for part I of the CMA exams and I have to say it was one of the most difficult exams I've ever taken. Like most of you, I put in several hours of studying after work and even worked with a tutor on the weekends. Though I felt prepared I still feel I didn't prepare enough and I honestly feel like I barely passed the 50% threshold on the MCQ's.

    I've read from both Hock and CMAExamAcademy that 10 out of 100 MCQs don't count towards your grade. Does anyone know if this is true for all versions of the exam? It's incredibly nerve wrecking trying to figure out if you may have passed or not but it would make me feel much better if this is actually true. I feel that I did very well on the essays and if a 60 out of 100 could really bring my MCQ score up to 67% it would be such a relief. I know this may be the first time people are hearing about it and I bet it would really calm your nerves if you're waiting for your scores like me. 


    Thanks for reading and best of luck to all of you working hard to earn those three letters!

    Mahalo!

    Gleim says something very similar - they call them "pretest" questions (I've copied from their website and pasted below).  I would assume it applies to both parts of the exam.  In all honesty, I don't recall encountering anything on Part I that really stumped me.  However, there were several questions on Part 2 that I know weren't covered in my study material (hopefully, most of these were pretest questions!).  The IMA has different versions of each exam, so the version you take might influence the number of "pretest" questions.  Since you made it to the essay section and you felt good about that portion, I'm sure you did fine!

    From Gleim: Each CMA exam will include an undisclosed number of "pretest" questions to gather data for their future potential use. Such questions do not count toward your score. It does no good to try to guess which questions might be pretest questions, so it's best to give every question your full attention.
