Appeal submission process
- The Examination Committee will publish the exam questions on this site in all languages, along with a map of the exam’s versions, the answer key and references to the exam literature. All this will be published within a month of the publication of the official exam scores on the site.
- Several days after publication of the exam results, an email message will be sent to all examinees who are eligible to submit an appeal. The email message will include a form with the examinee’s answers, instructions for submitting the appeal and the deadline for submitting the appeal.
- In light of the Examination Committee’s decision to publish the exam, the answer key and references, no seminar will be held to help prepare the appeal. Examinees can prepare their appeal according to the material published on the site.
- No appeals will be accepted after the deadline that is published and cited in the email message.

In light of the importance of an objective review, with full transparency, and the need for maximum efficiency, the appeals will be reviewed by dedicated appeals committees, which operate according to a structured and clear procedure in the framework of the appeal process
- In each sub-field, a dedicated appeals committee will be formed, separate from the Examination Committee and headed by a chairperson

- The appeals committee will base its decisions on the recommended literature, as published on the IMA site
- The decision of the appeals committee is final
- An appeal that was submitted and rejected by the appeals committee may not be re-submitted
- In light of the publication of the exam, the answer key and the references, the appeals committee will no longer specify the reasons for rejecting an appeal or provide details on the questions that were accepted in the appeal
