CIMA Operational Case Study

Case study questions pack

Question practice is the best form of preparation for the case study exams. You practice key theory. Master exam technique. Perfect your time management. Crucially, you learn from feedback about what you get both right and wrong!

And yet practising past real exams is really hard because you don’t know the pre-seen. And, to be honest, the official solutions are not always the best as a learning tool either – they’re simply not designed for that purpose!

We’ve reviewed over 5 years of real operational case study exam questions and recreated them with their own scenario meaning you see what real questions are like without the need to learn the pre-seens. We’ve also written detailed solutions in a style you can clearly learn from and should aim to recreate for the exam.

The question pack contains 60 case study exam-style questions – the equivalent of 15 mock exams!

As these questions are not applied to a specific pre-seen they are an ideal way to practise for ANY case study sitting and can be done before your pre-seen comes out as excellent preparation.

The questions come in document format and are not timed, meaning you can make your way through them at your own pace as excellent preparation before sitting timed mocks.

“I’ve used Astranti to support a number of my CIMA exams, the materials are designed to bring the theoretical knowledge to life and prepare you for a top result. Highly recommend to any student needing some support for their studies.

“I used Astranti FLP and can absolutely vouch for their materials. They are written in plain English and are really engaging and easy to grasp. I passed my MCS on first attempt thanks to their materials”

However, none of the questions require any previous pre-seen knowledge.

Also, due to their document format, you are not restricted to completing the questions under exam conditions, meaning you can dip in and out of the questions pack whenever is convenient for you.

What our students have to say…

Please see our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“I have used Astranti for OCS pre-seen (their notes are a great guide and the analysis helps you familiarize with pre-seen in depth) and then went on to buy full package for both MCS and SCS and managed to get first time passes on both exams. Their material is great and the marked mocks especially help you get ready for exam writing (for which theory knowledge is not enough). Would highly recommend it to everyone!”

“The study materials, the online masterclasses, the analysis of the case study, industry analysis, ethics analysis were vital to my passing.
But the marked mocks with feedback prepared me mostly, found some of them harder than the exam which prepared me brilliantly, helped to reduce nerves and gave me confidence for exam day.”
