Resitting the next window?

If you didn't make it this time, it's understandable that you might want to take a bit of time to deal with the disappointment. That's completely natural, and you should give yourself a day or so to absorb the result.

However, many successful CIMA students have revealed that one secret to their success was not allowing themselves to lose their momentum. As CIMA World Prizewinner and VIVA student Autumn Bressington told us in a recent interview, "after the exam, if I did fail, I'd allow myself the rest of the day to sulk (laughs). And then I'd get back on the horse the very next day, and start working through areas where I thought maybe I'd been weaker".

In other words, the best way to think when you don't pass is: "I've already got a foundation in this subject. I have experience with the exam. I can now build on that, learn from my mistakes, and if I carry on instead of getting dejected, I have a much higher chance of passing next time!".

VIVA's online MCS courses for the next round of exams are now underway, and there's still plenty of time to join and get started.

We have different options available, depending on your needs. You can find your ideal course via the link below:
