Half day mixed assessment revision courses provide expert tutor support ahead of your exam or coursework submission deadline, and are designed to improve your chances of passing.

Separate morning and afternoon sessions each cover one of the two elements of mixed assessment, enabling you to access expert tutor support when you need it most.

This afternoon session also explores key areas of the syllabus but from a multiple choice exam perspective, giving you an insight into what the examiner is looking for and equipping you with useful revision techniques. You'll also be able to clarify any areas of concern and discuss common mistakes and how to avoid them.

The morning session focuses on the coursework element of the assessment, exploring key areas of the syllabus and giving you an insight into best practice coursework assessment technique and what the examiner is looking for.

The courses are designed to be booked separately to best suit your study schedule but you can attend both on the same day if you prefer (these will need to be booked as separate events).

Before attending any of the revision courses, please make sure you have purchased and studied the primary text as listed in the syllabus reading list.

Qualification update

Testing position

  • Examinations are based on the published syllabus. Syllabuses are available free of charge on the CII website www.cii.co.uk or on request.
  • Candidates will be examined on the basis of law and practice in England unless otherwise stated.
  • The M97 examination consists of 50 multiple choice questions (MCQs). 1 hour is allowed for this examination.
  • The general rule is that legislative and industry changes will not be examined earlier than 3 months after they come into effect.
  • Candidates must keep up to date with legislative and industry changes that occur.

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).

The UK Government invoked 'Article 50' of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017. In doing so, the two-year negotiation period which will result in Britain leaving the EU began. This means that, at the time of publication, the UK's membership of the EU will cease on 29 March 2019.

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

The longer term impact of the decision to leave the EU on the UK's overall regulatory framework will depend, in part, on the relationship agreed between the UK Government and the EU to replace the UK's current membership at the end of the 'Article 50' negotiation period.

Please note: The UK decision to leave the European Union will have no impact on the 2017- 2018 CII syllabuses or exams. Changes that may affect future exam syllabuses will be announced as they arise. 

 

Exam guide update

The M97 Examination Guide for exams from 1 May 2016 to 30 April 2017 was first published in April 2016. Any questions which have been amended since the examination guide was first published will appear below.
