Study material matters

23 July 2021 Myra Knoesen

We started off with 60 contestants, with the ultimate goal of finding ONE winner! Who will it be?

Rapid risk and write off

It’s another week, another challenge…

Posed with right and wrong answers, episode 4 of The Insurance Apprentice 2021, sponsored by Chubb, saw the last group, Group 4, take part in the ‘Rapid Risk’ preliminary round. From next week onwards, we will see a whole new format… it’s super exciting and definitely not to be missed.

Multiple choice questions (sponsor, insurance and FAIS related questions) were presented to the contestants, and each contestant who chose the correct answer got points and moved up the leaderboard. With each question the fastest finger got additional points.

In the case of a draw, contestants were taken into the sudden death round. Five contestants who got the most correct answers moved on to the next round.

With the opportunity to be questioned directly by Simon Colman, Business Head of Digital and Financial Lines at SHA Risk Specialists, in game two, the five contestants were posed 10 questions, with only 120 seconds to answer… the two contestants with the most correct answers made it into the Top 10. The remainder went home.

A wild card

But wait… something just doesn’t add up!

For those who have followed episode one to four very carefully, and did the maths, you would have noticed something is missing… has a wild card been added to the mix?

Find out and see who made it to the Top 10, from Group 4…
