Entry deadlines

To guarantee a place and sit your exam at your local Kaplan centre, you need to book your exam online before the Kaplan exam deadline.

You can book exams for the Objective Test (OT) Assessments which take place for each of the individual subjects and for Integrated Case Study (ICS) exams which follow at the end of each level.

If you miss the Kaplan deadline, you can still register for an exam but will have to sit it at a Pearson VUE centre instead. The CIMA website has more information on their exam deadlines.
