I passed – what next?
Congratulations! What an achievement after all the hard work you put in. Your next step might be to move up the qualifications ladder and take a look at the next set of professional CIM qualifications. Or a break might be in order; it’s been a busy time! It’ll also give you an opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into action in your career.
Taking another qualification? Visit our Learning Zone
If you’re thinking about taking more CIM qualifications, all the information you need can be found in our Learning Zone. It gives a helpful overview of what you’ll learn, course content and fees. One of our popular qualifications is the CAM Diploma in Digital Marketing, and If you’ve completed the Certificate, Diploma or Postgraduate Diploma you’ll be exempted from one of the three digital modules.
The Student Support Group
The Student Support Group (SSG), based in London, can offer free personal advice on what to do next and how best to fit these studies around your busy professional life.
I failed – how can I move forward?
Failing an assignment or exam, or perhaps having to defer, can be disheartening, but there’s plenty of support to help you turn a negative into a positive. And we’re always here to help. You have 3 options, available from the CIM Assessment re-marking and feedback service.
- Procedural and mark check
- Re-marking service
- Individual candidate feedback report.
Some fees apply, please check.
Talking can help. Call Caroline at SSG on 01784 463057 for a free telephone conversation which could give a clearer picture of what may have not gone to plan or to find out about the SSG Digital Marketing courses.
Pinpoint gaps in knowledge. SSG will then offer you a FREE diagnostic quiz (previously £10, but London members can use this service for free) which will test your CIM subject knowledge and help you identify any knowledge gaps which you may need to fill. You can also get access to study hints and tips with our series of podcasts.
Gear up for success. SSG can review a failed assignment/discuss your exam performance and help you see where you went wrong (some fees apply). Then they can provide you with a choice of support services to help you pass next time. These range from a syllabus overview tutorial; assignment briefings; feedback on assignment draft work; case study support and mock exams with feedback – so everything you need to get started, get unstuck, and get finished up to, and beyond, CIM standards.
Important dates – June and September re-sits
Once you’ve made your decision, you can register for the June or September re-sits. It’s often a good idea to sit just one CIM subject at a time so you concentrate on it and work at your own pace. You have 10 years to finish a qualification, (although some details of this are due to change soon and we will inform you of this in upcoming issues), so don’t rush your decision.
