Past Exams and Pass Marks
Past examinations are available in this section. For Exams 1, 2, 3F and 4 that are jointly administered by the CAS and SOA, sample exams are released periodically. The sample essay answers for Exams 5-9 are actual responses that have received credit and are illustrative of successful answers, although they may not be considered perfect answers.
In referring to a published prior examination, candidates should keep in mind that the questions were based on the learning objectives in effect for that particular examination and may not reflect the current learning objectives. Candidates may also expect future examinations to vary somewhat as to the proportions of question styles and subjects. New forms of questions may appear from time to time, and the total number of questions may vary from one exam sitting to the next.
Pass marks are posted under the appropriate exam.
The Exams and Sample Solutions are Portable Document Format (PDF) files. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the documents.
