R06 - Study Time?

Hi All

I have my R01-R05 exams and now looking at bookiny R06 - primarily the dates are April or October, so I was about to book October, however there is a sitting in July if I travel to Manchester. Just wondering if anyone has any tips on how long I need to study for this module and whether July would be too ambitious?

Any help would be appreciated!



  • Depends on your overall experience and where your knowledge is at, I'd say. This may be a bit controversial (or not, perhaps) but I spent 18 months doing all R0 exams, sat R06 in January so you could say I had the majority of the info still fairly fresh in my head. I bought the Brand R06 analysis and as they release that two weeks before the exam, I waited until it was released and studied it every day until the actual exam. Passed with around 76% ish.

    That's just my experience and I didn't buy the CII book as most people say it doesn't add anything to your knowledge anyway, so you'll probably get a wide variety of responses. I wouldn't say July would be too ambitious at all for you, but again, depends on your current knowledge.

    Good luck anyway for when you do decide to sit it!

    That's great thanks for your help. I have done all of my R0 exams expect R06 in the last 2 years so I don't think I am far behind you! I have read a few people suggest not to buy the CII book for this one! Definitely going to start by looking at a few past cases and then gauge from there.

    Thanks again!

  • I have 7 past papers (2 from 2016, 3 from 2017 and 2 from 2018) which I can send you if you like? Only the 2016 papers have model answers though
