March 2000 For the Candidates of the Casualty Actuarial Society Volume 6, No. 1

Inside this Issue

2000 Exam Format Announced

The question format for CAS Spring Exams 5, 7-Canada, 7-US, and 8 will contain a mixture of true/false, multiple-choice, and essay questions. For a specific exam, any of the syllabus material may be tested using one or more of these types of questions. In addition, material from various sections of the exam's syllabus may be tested together on an individual question. As an example, on new Exam 5, there may be questions that combine material that in past years was tested separately on the Part 3B and Part 6 exams. These questions may be true/false, multiple-choice, or essay.
