I thought the same thing when the carpet was pulled underneath me for ST3. Yes let’s give the opening poster actuart more accurate information. Your name or email address: If they had any decency they would fully refund students for any costs they’ve incurred in pursuing an exam pass that’s now become worthless.
I was intersted in joining the profession by writing ct1 as a non-member then progressing through the exams.

On top of this, I have just received an email last week to say that due to the changes in the PPD requirements, if I do not qualify in the next 2 sittings, I will suddenly be required to conform to these too. I have complained to the Institute exactly about students in your Position.
It will also mean that a time limit is suddenly imposed on me to pass exams or render the exams I have taken previously as worthless. I have already come across several people who are disappointed with the change, actkary no one seems to want to do much. But now with the syllabus change I am not sure if I should wait till So in the space of the month, I have suddenly gone from having no Deadline to complete my exams, to having three sittings to having two sittings.
I would take another exam or just enjoy your life till the Institute can make up their mind on the new syllabus.
I wonder if the curriculum change is cost-neutral? B It is very likely that you will pay more in fees to the Institute and to Acted as there is quite a high chance than you run into difficulties C It is likely that you are put under undue stress and time pressure which other students have not suffered as you suddenly have a time limit imposed on yourself for passing exams.
Oh, I have actuaryy sittings, I’ll definitely pass ST3 in acguary in two sittings.

I wonder if next month, the Institute will make some change and I will just have to actuaty over. Why take unnecessary additional risk for a diminishing marginal gain?
They will see that exam entries will be very low in these last few sittings, perhaps just desperate students striving to complete the CT series before it’s too late.
From that perspective why wait? InfinityJun 1, The Institute has clearly stated that there will be no increase in exams, exam hours, study time and time to qualify, but in my case as well as the case of perhaps other students, this is simply not true.
This document has just been removed from the Institute website after I have made a complaint I know plenty of people who have failed each of these exams several times. Tutor-supported forums are also available as part of our Online Classroom. All it takes is for one bad sitting and you suddenly only have two chance left which is really not enough to be very certain you’ll get both exams.
On the other hand, if you take CT8 and pass in the next three sittings, then you will avoid having to take a written and Computer based assessment. There’s potential age discrimination here as well. If you’re only taking one exam per sitting, I’d say that despite the higher pass rates on these exams, you need to study very hard to pass in three sittings.
Of course it’s possible but you’re taking a risk. This Curriculum change is going to cause mayhem.
InfinityJun 3, A It is more likely than not that if you start with the CTs now you are going to be disadvantaged by the changes in the exam system.
One person even said she would quit the exams just because the system is changing.
