Exemptions for students of the Institute of Actuaries of India

We can grant exemptions from some of our exams if you have passed Institute of Actuaries of India exams

Curriculum 2019 notice: Applications from individuals who hold passes from the Institute of Actuaries of India will be considered subject to the guidelines detailed below.

It should be noted that for the IAI December 2018 examinations, the IFoA will not be recognising IAI passes achieved.

The IFoA is currently unable to confirm whether we will be recognising IAI examination passes achieved after January 2019.  The changes occurring in both the IFoA and IAI curriculum and examinations from January 2019 means the IFoA has to receive and carry out an audit of the IAI 2019 materials as well as compare the two examination systems before a final decision can be made.  

We will keep students informed of progress through our student newsletter and this webpage.

Students will have until 31 December 2023 to claim any exemptions from the IFoA for passes achieved from the IAI examinations as per the guidelines below.
