The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has announced additional R06 examination sittings in six locations in August, following "a clear growth in demand".
Additional sittings will be available on 24 August 2012 in Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
The August dates add to sittings already scheduled in June, July, October and November for the RDR-ready paper.
The CII said almost 1,000 candidates sat the R06 exam in January, while 1,700 turned out for the April sitting. Both were running at almost double volume compared to last year.
"There's been a clear growth in demand for the R06 exam and to offer advisers as much support as possible we have added this additional sitting," said director of corporate development Steve Aspinall.
