BTS facilitated an RO6 workshop for attendees nationally in advance of the April 2017 sitting. Students came from a number of different companies with a range of different experiences. Two days were spent looking at the exam case studies, talking about required question answering techniques and practising exam style questions.
Time was also spent on some key mnemonics to help students remember the sorts of areas that are required in answering exam questions. BTS have a great deal of experience in what CII examiners are looking for in terms of question answers and explanations.
BTS and the students achieved the seemingly impossible – a 100% exam pass rate!
Here is the feedback we received from the R06 BTS students.
“The BTS study guide is a step by step approach to tackling R06. It breaks down question styles and answers. The guide helped me enormously and having completed the guide specimen questions were no longer such a mystery. The guide and the course are the only way to set yourself up for success in R06. Many thanks to all the team at BTS their knowledge and guidance helped me every step of the way”. Sharon McIlroy – SJP Partner
“The BTS R06 study guide was unmeasurably more useful than the market alternative and I wish I'd bought the BTS version first! It is clearly written (unlike the market alternative) with lots of examples and practice questions throughout the chapters. The book is written with the exam in mind and gives useful advice all the way through to help improve your exam technique.
"As good as the study guide is, the BTS R06 workshop was invaluable in helping me pass. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and helped us to critically analyse the case studies to pre-empt some of the questions that we might get asked and then how best to answer them”. Kieran Thorne – Financial Adviser
“R06 Made Easy’ – This completely sums up my experience of R06 and this was all due to Luiza and the BTS Team! I was fortunate enough to attend a two- day workshop held by BTS, this was invaluable training and worth every penny! Luiza made learning easily digestible and dare I say it even ‘fun’ and I strongly believe I wouldn’t have known where to begin with the exam case studies for R06 without the wealth of knowledge and structure both Luiza and the BTS study guide gave me. BTS ‘after care’ is also worth a mention, the encouraging emails were extremely welcome both before the exam and during the long wait for the results. Bravo BTS! ”.

“Luiza was absolutely fantastic from our initial contact all the way through to the exam date. The course itself was slick and a testament to all the hard work that goes on at BTS. During the two- day course Luiza developed a relaxed but extremely productive environment which is exactly how I love to work. Without her help I would have found the R06 exam much harder to pass. I can’t thank her and BTS enough for all the hard work and patience. I would highly recommend BTS in the future”. Ashley Moore – Trainee Financial Adviser Martin Hurst Financial Consultancy
