CIMA online exams

What is Online Proctoring?

CIMA allows students to take their exams remotely using online proctoring. Online proctoring, or invigilation, is a way to supervise test-takers and ensure honesty while preventing cheating.

How Does CIMA Exam Proctoring Work?

CIMA is using Pearson OnVUE to safely and securely proctor your upcoming exams. Using Pearson OnVUE, CIMA can guarantee that exam results are reliable while providing a fair testing environment for all students. Each tester will have an assigned proctor that will monitor the test using your device’s webcam and microphone.

With exam proctoring, you’ll be able to take your exams from the comfort of your home. You’ll need a quiet environment for testing. The room must be walled with a closed door and free of distractions. Other people are not allowed in the room with you while you’re testing.
