How can I increase my chances of passing the CII exams?

Starting your studies early is key. These exams are demanding and require dedication to studying - there's no short cut to passing.

We recommend that you read through the textbook completely, then go through the chapter again and make notes and finally do a review of each chapter in detail.  Also, review the past exam papers that are posted on the CII's website.  Attending our classes offers students the structure and discipline that many cannot achieve on their own.

How much time do I need to put in to pass the CII exams?

We recommend a minimum of 6 hours a week per subject. This will allow you to study at a fairly good pace and avoid the need to cram at the last minute.
