Hi, is anyone else sitting R04 soon or sat it recently? I have just started the book but was hoping to do it by the end of August and then do R06 in October and was wondering how it was in relation to the others and if people think this is possible? I have done R01, R02, R03 and R05 and found them all bar R02 okay. I found R02 a really hard so if R04 is anything like that I might give myself a bit longer. Thanks

    Hi Jen, I sat R04 & passed first time on 14/07/20. This was a relatively reasonable exam for me and felt it was somewhat easier than R02 & R03. Saying that, the time I took to study for the exam was significantly shorter for R04. If you work in practice then it is probably a little easier - there are a few fundamental things you can do that give you a steer on most questions. Thinking about how the government would want to tax certain benefits in certain ways and why, and what their general aims and objectives are long term help with the multiple choice questions. I can share some R04 material if you send me a message with your email on. Hope this helps!


  • Hi @JenEC14 and @JBar, I am hoping to sit my RO4 at the end of August too and then RO3. I signed up for the Expert Pensions R04 course which I think is pretty good. Was looking at the Brand Financial resources too and wondered if you guys or anyone else had tried the audio or the calculations workbook? Be interested to hear. Also be interested in any R04 material you have that you would be willing to share!
