R06 July 2019

Hi,

I am doing the R06 exam in July and am just wondering what everyone's revision method is?

Comments

  • Have you done the other R0's recently? And do you work in the industry day-to-day?

    If so, it's a cramming session once you have the case study, for me.

    There's also some companies who also buy the exam so they can tell you what they think the questions and answers will be.

    Ive just done R06 in April and I used the Brand analysis which comes out 10 days before, which "predicts" possible questions and the answers expected for the exam. I also done some extra research on the case study of my own and used previous CII exam case studys which are on their website

    Good luck :)

    Hi, thank you for your feedback!

  • I wouldn't suggest my option but I can help with past papers if you need them

  • Me too, I can't seem to find 30 credits worth of stuff to do which makes me wonder if I misunderstand what I'm meant to be doing. Maybe that credits thing is just silly and there's no way it will be 3x R04.

  • J05 is similar to R04; it's just written instead of multiple choice. Written exams are scary after such a long time of not doing them but a good way to ease you into AF exams, if that is your goal

  • R06 is designed to be a combination of the previous 5 R0's in a way that is different. It's written not computer-based.

    You are given a case study and effectively provide advice to the fictitious client.

    If you've passed the first 5 exams there's less text book study to be done (but you will still want to refresh some areas i'm sure). You will need to decide which areas you think you are less confident in.

    You will also spend more time with this exam, working on your exam technique, the way you approach and answer the questions is just as important as getting the right answers.

    Make sure you use the keywords the examiner is looking for. Make sure you don't waffle on, use bullet points. Make sure you state the bleeding obvious etc etc.

    I think the extra credits are justified for R06. But if you are well prepared it needn't be too daunting. I actually enjoyed this one the most.

  • I narrowly failed r06 in April and I’m resitting it in July (missed the deadline to sign for the last one without paying the ridiculous late fee). I’m kicking myself as I definitely failed as I failed to turn over the last page and missed quite a few questions which I realised at the 2mins to end point. I scrabbled to write something but it wasn’t enough to scrape through.

    In preparation last time I went over the r06 study guide first which unlike others I did think was quite useful. I also bought the wizard resources and went over lots of their past papers in the weeks before and crammed their solution in the last week. I thought it was quite good (and they give you all the previous ones) which is loads of resource to be going on with I probably won’t get through them all before I switch to the real case studies. My method has been to try the qs then look at their answer and also after write in every answer I missed hopefully slowly remembering more and more as I try similar question topics repeatedly. In the spirit of trying different resources I’m trying the brand one this time to compare (not received yet). If I move on to level 6 ones I might try expert pensions resources too.

    this is also my exam technique! attempting the questions, looking at the model answers and highlighting the ones i missed. I will be using Brand analysis and im trying Redmill Advance this time round too.
