Are the IIQE Paper 1 video courses on 2CExam’s Youtube channel still applicable to the exams today?

June 24, 2021

Are the IIQE Paper 1 courses uploaded by 2CExam a few years ago still applicable to the exam?

In recent years, 2CExam has launched a series of online video courses for the IIQE Paper insurance exam. The courses integrate the most important content in the entire exam paper and are covered by seasoned instructor from scratch. The link is as follows:


Youtube (video instructions provided in Chinese):


Bilibili (video instructions provided in Chinese):


Many students will ask if the content of our Youtube videos is updated? The answer is: it is not the most updated, but it still has a high reference value.

Since Youtube videos cannot be modified once they are released, the old videos that have been released by 2CExam cannot be updated. However, in recent years, there have been very few changes to the PEAK’s study notes. In order to make a comparison between the study manuals version published a few years ago and the current version, our specialist will be comparing the difference between the 2.7 version published in 2015 and the 3.3 version published in June 2021. 


The most frequent change in Peak’s notes is the difference in wording. After several revisions and 8 years of so called “changes”, in fact, more than 90% of the content remains exactly the same!


Revision method for the updated parts 

  1. First, download the newest version of the HKSI study manual
  2. Open the study manual while watching 2CExam’s Youtube video course, and check if there is any new topics
  3. Revise 1 chapter
  4. Complete 1 chapter of the mock questions


This review method takes 20-25 hours, it is statistically proven that there is an 80% pass rate using this method of revision. 

No statistics are available for other review methods.


Below we will point out the differences between the two versions of the study manual. Students can pay special attention to the updates of the study manual when they are watching the online Youtube course, and make up for the information that is not updated yet on the Youtube video.


What’s the difference?

The answer will definitely surprise you. 

The most frequently updated part of the entire study manual is the change of wording fronts. 

And the newly imported information is less than 2 A4 paper!


So long as students pay special attention to the updated parts of the latest version of the official study notes and distinguish the difference between the past and present regulations and its regulatory agencies, there is no need to worry about the issue of the YouTube courses not being updated.
