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 financial services 'R0' Diploma units 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 100 public centres outside the UK.
  • Coursework assessment - available for a select number of Advanced Diploma in Insurance units and the financial services unit (J09) Paraplanning, coursework assessment involves the completion of three written assignments during a 12 month period.
  • Mixed assessment - Initially introduced for unit (P92) Insurance business and finance, this has been extended to units (P05) Insurance law, (P80) Underwriting practice, (P81) Insurance broking practice and (P85) Claims practice from April 2015 and and will be extended to 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 the Advanced Diploma unit 991 London market insurance specialisation. This involves the submission of a dissertation proposal and an 11,000 word dissertation. This has an 18 month enrolment period. This unit should only be taken by those who have access to the necessary information and people in the London Market.

Testing Position

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.

Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018.  Examinations will be reflective of GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 from 25 May 2018.
