Exam Feedback

Current Challenge

  • Limited feedback after exams

SOA Shift

  • Candidates who do not pass will receive more detailed score reports with actual score by question part
  • Option to get personal written feedback for those coming close to passing (fee applies)

More Feedback

The SOA will provide you with detailed score reports if you do not pass a course, providing your actual score by question part. We will also publish pass marks, so you can see how close you were if you did not pass that course.

Additionally, for a fee, you can receive written feedback on your performance if you do not pass an assessment and are close to passing. We will offer this personalized feedback to help you understand your proficiencies and areas of improvement, so you can be more focused and productive in your studies going forward. More details on this performance feedback option will be shared at a later date.
