10 most frequently asked questions about the R0 Exams | Professional Paraplanner Magazine

In a recent article for Professional Paraplanner magazine, Alex Langhorn, head of Business Support, sums up the 10 most frequently asked questions about the R0 exams BTS has been asked over the past year.

“I’m new to the financial services sector, where do I start when studying for the R0 exams?”

When the support team at BTS receive an email or telephone call starting with this question, our hearts do a little dance of joy as it means the person on the other end of the enquiry has reached out for support right at the start of their journey. Why is this a good thing?

Well, there are quite a few options on the market when it comes to R0 study support (not just the examining body’s study materials, which you don’t have to buy) so the fact that they are shopping around from the off means they will be in a much better position than a candidate who launches headlong into spending hard-earned money on a study plan that may or may not suit them.
