R05 assessments


“I have just passed RO5 which now means I have managed to pass RO1 to R05 in 2 months using your website which I don't think would have be possible without it. Your website is far more user friendly than the CII text books, so a big thank you from me.” Philip Jones - True Potential

“I got through R01 to R05 now in 6 months largely due to Wizard Learning. I have recommended to all my collegues.” Sarah Shah, Pearson Independent Advisers

"I passed R05 this morning, which not have been possible without the use of your revision and mock exams, thank you" Simon Chapman,Yasoss Ltd

Questions per assessment

Each assessment includes the correct weightings per learning outcome that you will receive in the actual exam. We have designed the system so that if you select a 50 question assessment in exam style this will be similar to the real computer based exam. The 25 question assessment is 50% of a full exam.


There are 300 questions in the database. Our system records the questions you have viewed so that they are not repeated until you have worked your way through the full question bank. An ongoing tracking of the questions delivered ensures that a different mix of questions is included in each assessment and that the questions do not repeat quickly. Questions are written and reviewed by subject knowledge experts with many years of experience in training and exam setting.

Flexible navigation

Allowing you to skip and tag questions to revisit and review before completing the assessment.


A clock shows the expected and elapsed time for each assessment. You can however take as long as you need to complete each assessment.

Recovery feature

If you leave an assessment part way through the system will return you to the same point when you next return.
