Candidates who purchase the above units after the dates provided will have access to feedback through Turnitin if they receive a fail result for an assignment. Turnitin is the plagiarism detection software that is used by the CII. Guidance on using the Turnitin feedback is available to candidates through their RevisionMate account.

This service is only available to candidates:
If you require any further feedback, you will need to request a post-results review of marking.
Original content and referencing – the originality of your assignment and use of referencing can affect the marks awarded:
· Did your assignment have a high reliance on sourced content, rather than your own original analysis? – the deeper the level of understanding demonstrated, the higher the marks that can be awarded. Please be wary of ‘copy and pasting’ material.
· Was sourced content referenced and cited? Would it be clear to a marker which content was your own work? – credit is given for identifying relevant content from Chartered Insurance Institute study texts and further reading; but it must be clear when sourced content is used, and when your own analysis begins.
Please see the respective coursework or dissertation guidelines and instructions document(s) and this short video for details on how to reference.

For on-screen written examinations and written examinations delivered on paper:
Examiners are selected for their relevant and up to date knowledge and experience and have been specifically trained to mark exams in accordance with carefully laid down criteria.
The CII adheres to a positive marking policy to ensure that candidates are treated fairly. Full marks are given if a candidate has provided a complete answer according to the marking scheme. Full credit is also given for alternative answers that are equally valid but not given in the marking scheme.
Marks are not withheld for bad spelling. If a candidate has attempted more than the required number of optional questions and has not indicated clearly which answers should be disregarded, all the answers are marked, and the best marks are awarded.
For questions involving numerical calculations, the bulk of the marks are awarded for the correct method being used; only a minority of the marks being awarded for the final answer.
Quality assurance processes are in place to ensure that marking is accurate and consistent and that exam standards are maintained over time.
Response cannot be returned to you under any circumstances.
For on-screen multiple-choice examinations:
A standard format multiple choice question consists of a problem followed by four options or answers (labelled A, B, C and D) from which the candidate must choose the correct or best response. Each question contains only one correct response. One mark is awarded for each correct response identified. No mark is awarded if the candidate chooses an incorrect response, chooses more than one response or fails to choose any response. No marks are deducted for an incorrect response.
A multiple response format question consists of a problem, followed by between four to six options. For each question more than one option is correct. Candidates must select all the correct options to gain the mark.
On-screen multiple-choice examinations are automatically marked by computer. The pass mark is pre-set.
Quality assurance processes with inbuilt checks are in place to ensure that marking is accurate and that exam standards are maintained over time.
Responses cannot be returned to you under any circumstances.
