How to pass the CII R04 | Why does this exam have the lowest pass rate?

Chalk drawn question mark

The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) R04 Pensions and Retirement Planning unit now has the lowest countrywide pass rate. Why?

The CII pensions unit had a countrywide pass rate of 61% in the 2020 calendar exam year. This is a unit that requires a minimum of 50 study hours (yeah right, and the rest!) and once successfully passed gives candidates 10 CII credits (it should be worth so much more, in our opinion!).

What make this R0 unit such a tough ask? Why do many candidates ‘defer their success’ in R04, some on multiple occasions? 

This week, BTS Director Luiza Todd penned an article for Professional Paraplanner Magazine, looking at the issues facing R04 candidates.
