RE Study Guide Download PDF
There are 2 sets of material which can be used for preparation purposes:
The Preparation Guide for RE1 and RE5 which is available at https://www.fsca.co.za/Regulated Entities/Pages/LR-FAIS-Amendments.aspx and
The legislation itself. The Preparation Guide refers to the relevant sections in the Act and subordinate legislation that must be studied.
The Preparation Guides are important as they specify the material of the examinations, in that they seek to describe what the examination questions will be testing. All examination questions are based upon the material as set out and in addition the Preparation Guides draw up exactly where you can discover the relevant details in the legislation.
The task describes what the candidate must be able to do in respect of the legislation.
The qualifying criteria refer to the knowledge that a person must have to perform the task.
REFERENCE / MOTIVATION
In this column the reference to the actual legislation is provided – if you read the particular section of the legislation, then you will have the required knowledge as referred to in the qualifying criteria.
Every question in the question bank for all the regulatory examinations is based upon the “qualifying criteria” (or the knowledge column) as explained. The questions must be connected to these knowledge requirements otherwise it might not be included in the examination as an examination question.
It is very important to check out the real legislation. One can not expect to be tested on legislation without having actually read the legislation. By reading the legislation you will get used to the meanings, terms and the way in which the legislation is drafted. Please be encouraged that the very same terminology and technique is used in the examination questions. The questions need to be technically right in that the proper legislative terms should be utilized at all times. Reading the legislation will assist you to analyze the questions correctly.
