Next Available Sitting (As STAM)
Registration Deadline (Register by Midnight US Central Time)
Exam P. Exam C is built on concepts from P, covering more technical topics that require mastery of Probability.
C will be offered in February and June of 2018, then it will be replaced by Exam STAM, the first sitting of which will be in October 2018.
If you want to get your ASA before the 2018 SOA transition, February 2018 is your last chance to take Exam C.
If you don't plan to get your ASA before the transition, you can take Exam C in June 2018 to get credit for STAM, or you can take STAM when it starts being offered in October 2018.
Questions related to these concepts will appear frequently on the exam.
"Make sure you give yourself enough time to go through the material. There's a lot of it."
"If you are like me and you don't like abstract math, do tons of practice questions until you've seen almost every type of exam question."
"Many topics on the exam are application-based. In going through the exam material, focus on understanding as much as possible from a big-picture perspective."
"Be prepared to do some heavy calculus. I highly recommend you use the TI-30XS MultiView calculator for this exam."
"If you've taken a CBT exam before, the format won't surprise you on Exam Day. I was pretty much used to the Prometric CBT experience by this time, having taken P, FM, and MFE at the same testing center."
After you complete your exam, you will receive a preliminary Pass-Fail result. This is not your official final result.
After approximately 8 to 11 weeks, the SOA will release the list of passing candidates' ID numbers. A few days after this list has been published, you will be able to see your final score in your official SOA transcript when you log into the SOA website.
