Online Exam Benefits Over Classroom Training

When it comes to preparing for the CIMA examinations, learning online, and appearing for online exams have some definite advantages over learning in a classroom.

  • Online exam helps in learning at any time. Distance or time doesn’t hamper the learning procedure. Learning in a classroom, on the other hand, requires traveling to a specific location at a specific time. This can be disadvantageous for many students.
  • Online education is easily accessible. The course materials can be accessed in a convenient way and the required preparation can be done from home. This is often not possible in classroom training.
  • Everything is a homework when it comes to online exams: appearing for the test, getting the test scores instantly and more. It helps the student to relax and learn at any point in time.
  • Having internet enabled device is the only pre-requisite for learning online. Anybody with an average computer at home can easily access the required materials for learning.
  • On-demand online examinations enable the student to understand their level of preparedness and revise the weak areas over and over again. Since these exams are generally available on demand, retakes also become very convenient. This facility is not available in case of classroom education.
