CIMA P1 - Management Accounting
The CIMA P1 exam’s syllabus covers four main areas: costing, budgeting, short-term decision-making, and risk and uncertainty. You may remember them from your BA2 exam because a lot of the CIMA P1 topics were introduced there.  

A. Cost accounting for decision and control - 30%
B. Budgeting and budgetary control - 25%
C. Short-term commercial decision-making - 30%
D. Risk and uncertainty in the short term - 15%

You will face a mix of both numeric and theory questions in your exam. So, you’ll need to dust off your old school calculator (or go out and buy one – find out more about what sort of calculator you need in our tips at the bottom of this page).
