BTS has run a series of RO2 Investment and Risk workshops for one of its clients in Edinburgh. The audience were second careerists with little or no financial services experience.
7 of the 8 students passed the CII RO2 exam first time around giving an initial pass-rate of 88%. Following an extra day’s revision with a BTS tutor the student that failed first time passed on a resit. Meaning the group achieved a 100% pass rate after two attempts by this one student. Countrywide industry pass-rates were 54% for RO2 in 2015. These are fantastic results and we are thrilled for our client and students alike.
See below for some feedback from these Edinburgh RO2 BTS students on how they found the experience and their journey to an RO2 pass.
“As a brand new entrant to the industry, I found the structure and delivery of the BTS RO2 workshops to be extremely beneficial to my learning and understanding. I also used the BTS RO2 study guide and found the layout, chapter tests and ongoing examples within the chapters really helpful in breaking down complex subject areas."

"BTS as a whole are unrivalled in my eyes, they have helped me greatly in working my way through the RO exams. Making the change from other study materials to BTS has proven to be a great decision, with the added help from the trainers in the revision workshops I have not only passed each exam first time around but my understanding of the financial industry has improved significantly. Most recently attended an RO2 workshop with BTS for the RO2 exam, can't recommend the tutor or the company enough, spoke in our language using every day examples which made the whole process enjoyable and evidently worthwhile with another first time pass. Highly recommend BTS over other study options."
