Sitting the CII R06 remote exam - Candidate experiences from the January sitting

The first R06 exam sitting of 2022 took place on Tuesday 26 January. As candidates across the country wait with bated breath for results day on the 4  March, we have been hearing from a significant number who experienced issues and glitches with the on-screen exam system. Now, the CII have offered on-screen remote sittings since mid-2020, so why are candidates still experiencing system issues?

This week, BTS Business Support Manager Alex Langhorn penned an article for Professional Paraplanner Magazine, reflecting on candidate experiences from the January sitting of the R06 remote exam.

BTS have supported every R06 sitting since the unit’s inception. Read more about our recommended R06 study plan.

R06 Financial planning practice

This is the final unit needed to achieve the CII Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. It brings together all the knowledge gained throughout the previous five units. Candidates cannot achieve their level 4 qualification or apply for their Statement of Professional Standing (SPS) without a pass in the R06 exam to complete their Diploma.

The R06 exam is a three-hour written exam based on case studies released two and a half weeks prior to the exam sitting. Worth 30 credits and with a recommended 100 hours of study, this is a chunky unit that needs serious attention. The R06 exam can be sat four times a year (January / April / July and October usually), so if a candidate fails, they have to wait a while until the next sitting.

Exam format: 3-hour written exam
