Introduction

CII qualifications involve the completion of one or more units, each covering an individually assessed topic. Assessment methods vary and depend on a unit's level and subject matter.


Assessment methods include:

  • Multiple-choice exams - the assessment method for Award, Certificate, and Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning units R01-R05 assessed in the UK. Exams are delivered on-screen at a network of over 40 public centres across the UK. Sittings are available year-round, often on a weekly basis.
  • Written exams - the assessment method for some Diploma and Advanced Diploma units and all units examined outside the UK. Sittings are typically available twice-yearly in April and October at over 50 public centres throughout the UK and over 120 public centres outside the UK.
  • Coursework assessment - available for a select number of Advanced Diploma in Insurance units, Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning unit (AF6) Senior management and supervision and financial services unit (J09) Paraplanning, coursework assessment involves the completion of three written assignments during a 12 month period.
  • Mixed assessment - available for a number of Diploma in Insurance units and all Diploma in Insurance units by April 2018 (unit codes begin with the letter M). This involves the successful completion of both a coursework assignment and a multiple-choice exam. This has an 18 month enrolment period.
  • Dissertation assessment - available for Advanced Diploma units (991) London market insurance specialisation and (994) Insurance market specialisation. This involves the submission of a dissertation proposal and an 11,000 word dissertation. This has an 18 month enrolment period.

Solvency II Directive

Solvency II comes into effect on 1 January 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Directive from 1 May 2016. 

The Insurance Act 2015

The Insurance Act 2015 comes into effect on 12 August 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Act from 1 October 2016.

EU referendum

On 23 June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU).

Prime Minister Theresa May announced, in October 2016, that 'Article 50' of the Lisbon Treaty would be invoked no later than the end of March 2017. In doing so, the two year bargaining period which will result in Britain leaving the EU begins. This means that, at the time of publication, the UK's membership of the EU will cease on a date no later than the end of March 2019.

Until this final 'withdrawal agreement' is entered into the UK will continue to be a full member of the Single Market, compliant with all current rules and regulations, and firms must continue to abide by their obligations under UK law, including those derived from EU law, and continue with implementation plans for legislation that is still to come into effect.

The longer term impacts of the decision to leave the EU on the overall regulatory framework for the UK will depend, in part, on the relationship between the UK and the EU that replaces the UK's current membership, but this is unlikely to take effect until the end of March 2019 at the earliest.

Please note: The UK decision to leave the European Union will have no impact on the 2017 CII syllabuses or exams. Changes that may affect future exam syllabuses will be announced as they arise.
