CIMA Strategic Case Study
Theory revision series
In our post-exam surveys after almost every strategic case study exam, students tell us they wish they’d spent MORE time revising the theory from their E3, F3 and P3 exams.
For many students, it’s been months (if not years) between them passing their objective test exams and attempting the case study – a lot of time for their knowledge to slip!
And yet, to revise all three subjects in full is nigh on impossible when you also have to understand the pre-seen and master your case study technique too.
Our aim is to save you time and make your life easier! We have examined the last 8 years of case studies to work out what theory tends to come up regularly and what rarely comes up at all, and summarised all the key examinable topics in a clear and simple way in our revision texts and videos.
Our SCS theory revision series:
+ Covers all the most important theory that you need to know for the case study exams
+ Converts the key content from over 1,100 pages of syllabus study texts into just 552 pages
+ Condenses the theory into manageable chunks, with around 33 hours of video to watch
+ Gives you the platform to successfully apply the syllabus theory to the pre-seen company and the un-seen exam scenarios

What our students have to say…
“I passed my SCS exam in November 2023. As I came through the CFO pathway, I knew I needed to fill knowledge gaps before tackling the CIMA Strategic Case Study.
Astranti’s Strategic level theory summaries proved invaluable for this. This streamlined approach saved me precious time and helped me confidently navigate the pre-seen material.”
“I have purchased the theory revision series for Management Case Study and now Strategic. Very informative and provides useful scenarios you can expect to see in the exams as well as gaining an understanding of how to build application marks in case studies.
I passed MCS first time with the help of this, so I’ve purchased in again for SCS. Fingers crossed! Would highly recommend this revision series. Thank you!”
