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.


Study and assessment methods include:

  • Multiple-choice question (MCQ) exam - Study is based on a specified enrolment period, from 01 January – 31 December. MCQ exams are available weekly at UK and select non-UK online exam centres, or twice-yearly in April and October at non-UK paper-based exam centres.
  • Written exams - Study is based on a 12 month enrolment period from the date of purchase. Written exams are held twice-yearly in April and October, with the exception of unit R06 which is tested four times-yearly, at UK and non-UK exam centres.
  • Coursework assessment - Study is based on a 12 month enrolment period from the date of purchase. Three written assignments, each typically between 2,000 - 3,000 words, need to be passed.

  • Mixed assessment - Study is based on a 18 month enrolment period from the date of purchase. A combination of a single coursework assignment must be passed within the first six months and a MCQ exam passed within 18 months.

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. 

 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 

The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect on 25 May 2018 and examinations will be reflective of the regulation from 25 May 2018.
