The CMA exam has a unique scoring system that can sometimes be confusing for candidates. Here’s everything you need to know to correctly interpret your CMA exam score.
Essays are graded offline by ICMA, the certifying body of the IMA, so do not expect to see your results the day of your exam. Instead, the ICMA will email your exam results to you approximately six weeks from the end of the month in which you’ve taken your test.
The ICMA email provides all the information necessary to find out if you achieved a CMA exam passing score. At the time grades are released, results are also available online in your Account Profile transcript. Unfortunately, the ICMA does not share exam scores via telephone.
