How hard is the CMA exam?
Based on CMA pass rates alone, I’m not surprised that many potential candidates are put off from wanting to tackle this exam. In fact, the majority of candidates don’t get a passing score. With CMA exam pass rates as low as 45% for Part One and also 45% for Part Two, there is obviously a high level of difficulty.
How long does it take to become a CMA?
It takes at least six years to become a CMA as you will need to obtain a bachelor’s degree, gain two years of relevant work experience and pass the CMA exam. Your two years of work experience must be in a role that is relevant to the CMA certification such as accounting, finance, budgeting or auditing.
