Travel Time Report
By Nick Schneider, ACAS

I envy the candidates who pass all their exams on the first try, but I know plenty of candidates who inconsistently pass exams on the second, third, or eighth attempt. At the same time there are students who will earn their initial designations in their early 20s, late 20s, 30s or 40s, and possibly later.

In the midst of these combinations, the statistic that the CAS specifically tracks and has targets for is the number of years it takes a candidate to achieve CAS designations (ACAS or FCAS). This is referred to as "travel time."

Fall 2017 is the last sitting that Exam S will be administered. Please familiarize yourselves with the 2018 transition rules.

The transition rules are simple: Any candidate with credit for Exam S achieved through an examination administered prior to January 1, 2018 will receive credit for MAS-I, and anyone with credit for Exam C achieved through an examination administered prior to July 1, 2018 will receive credit for MAS-II.
