One key change is the removal of the C03 Business Maths unit and CIMA will allow students to apply for a waiver from the C03 exam. Read our blog post to find out how this may impact you and whether you should take the waiver.
If you decide not to take the waiver, Kaplan are offering an online course for C03 in 2016.
