What is Common Case Study considering the New Strategic Level?

In the new Syllabus all the 3 subjects in Strategic Level are integrated through a common Case Study. A common scenario will be provided for the assessment. This is called the Pre - Seen material. This will be available well in advance before the exam. The Pre-seen material is common to all the 3 subjects ( ES , PS , FS). The questions will be developed through this material
Why is this different from the current Strategic Level?


The teaching & learning style should be remarkably different since all the 3 subjects should follow the same strategy in the new syllabus to ensure examinations success. Analysis of the Pre- seen should be carried out through a common approach.

How to teach the New Strategic level

The students should not be exposed to different approaches since they would negatively influence the understanding of the scenario & specially in answering the questions in the exam. The case study will provide information regarding a particular organisation. This information should be analysed to determine strategic direction of the organisation in the future.

What is the competence required to Teach the New Strategic Level

The lecturer should be multi qualified based on different specialised areas to effectively coach the students to analyse the case study. This is not an ordinary examination. The lecturer should have prior experience in teaching for case study examinations.

The teaching technique should be Integrated Case Analysis where the scenario should be evaluated based on a common basis covering every issue. The students should not be confused with different approaches since that can create negative results in the examination due to lack of focus.
What's the role of the Student?

A student entering the Strategic Level should have a clear understanding of the exam and the nature of assessment. The lecturer and the process of course delivery will be the most important variable considering exam success. The student should develop writing skills and integrative thinking.

How to Develop Integrative thinking and Analytical Skills of Students

All the 3 subjects should have a common assessment. There should be mock exams under real conditions for all the subjects in the strategic level to ensure consistency of application. The Mock exams should comprise of a common Pre- seen material to ensure effective training for the real exam. The papers of the mock examination should be marked by the lecturer through the common assessment criteria specified by CIMA.

What's the competence that can be used from the Managerial Level?

Enterprise Operation (EO)
This subject will directly provide the basic knowledge required to analyse the Common case study. This subject will help the student to understand the given organisation and the issues effectively to ensure exam success.

Enterprise Management (EM)

This subject will provide the basic competence required to understand the strategy of the organisation. This subject provides the integrated knowledge required to manage a particular organisation. The students are expected to enhance the same competence developed through this subject to the New

Strategic Level

What's the role of the Enterprise Management Pillar in the New Syllabus?

This is the driving force for the management of an organisation. This pillar provides the basis for organisational development and strategy formulation. This pillar will directly contribute to the exam success in the TOPCIMA.

A sound knowledge in the Enterprise Management pillar will provide a clear benefit for the students in the New Strategic Level and the TOPCIMA examination
