Sitting Exams CII

Out of curiosity. How long did it take you to pass the each RO Exam (Roughly) and then the full diploma as well as any people doing AF exam and received the full chartered status ?

    Took me about 6 months to pass the Diploma whilst working. AF exams are slightly harder as they have set dates which are spaced out. Did my first one in July last year and need one more for the advanced diploma which I can do at the end of the year, so roughly a year and a half?

    Thank you for your reply. Was this the CII route you took ? If so may I just ask how you went about studying for the exam. Was it just study as much as I can for the period until you past it or did you have a particular method.

    From starting from** complete** scratch I have the Diploma, equity release, care, 2/3 paraplanner essays (hopefully passed anyway!) and AF8.

    I changed my career in Jan 2020 and worked pretty hard on passing the exams, quickly, I thought

    So it's a slog but I quite enjoy them.

    That's fantastic. Well done. Are you working full time and just putting a lot of hours each week into your development ? How do you go about the exams, like studying for them should I say and would give any advice ?

    yeah working full time but tbh I've (sometimes) prioritised study over my actual job so don't copy me! Expert Pensions was the best site I found but expensive, Brand are good (check out free sample) and Wizard Learning tests also good. I liked doing practice tests just because they are more fun.
