CAS Offering Exam 6 International for Global Candidate Community

The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) expanded the pathway options to its actuarial credentials in 2021 with the introduction of the new Exam 6-International (6-I). The exam was developed to meet the needs of employers and future members in Asia, South America, and Europe, and received an above average rating for overall quality from those who took the exam last year. The CAS is pleased to offer the exam again from April 30 through May 6, 2022.

Exam 6-International joins three other exams focused on regulation and financial reporting systems in specific jurisdictions: Exam 6-United States, Exam 6-Canada, and Exam 6-Taipei.

Ran Guo, FCAS CAS Country Manager, China says, “This exam is advisable for candidates outside North America because it focuses on the responsibilities of an actuary as defined by various standards of practice, regulations, and insurance laws for financial reporting around the world.”

Exam 6-International will prepare candidates with the skills and knowledge to become experts in international standards and regulation, along with emerging areas of global practice, which will be applicable across the international marketplace. For example, the exam will specifically address the future applications of IFRS 17. The complete Exam 6-I syllabus can be found on the CAS website, along with sample exam questions.

As with all CAS exams, 6-I is included in the Fee Discount Program and will be offered via computer-based testing with our partner Pearson VUE. A full list of test centers can be found on the Pearson VUE/CAS website.  

Registration is currently open for the Spring 2022 CAS Exam Sitting, for exams MAS-I, MAS-II, 5, 6-Canada, 6-International, 6-US, 7 and 9. The deadline is approaching and will close on April 8, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. Early registration is recommended.
