A Note to CAS Candidates From Steve Armstrong, CAS Vice President-Admissions
Since the SOA announced changes to its basic education system, the CAS has received a number of inquiries from candidates regarding how the SOA’s new approach to preliminary exams will affect the CAS’s requirements for membership.
The CAS admissions committees are examining the changes to the SOA preliminary exam system and we are considering whether the changes planned by the SOA are consistent with our position on what topics should be included within preliminary education. We will share information on any changes to CAS requirements resulting from the SOA’s plans for revising their preliminary exams as soon as any decisions have been made.
We understand that candidates are anxious for information, and we expect to provide an update in October following discussions taking place at the next several CAS Board of Directors meetings.
