Examinations for non-members

With the introduction of our new Curriculum 2019, we are making changes to the exam options available to our non-members. Currently a non-member can only apply for the CT1 exam, however as we approach the new Curriculum 2019 examinations and we only have two exam sittings left of the current curriculum, we will be offering our non-members the options below.

For the April 2018 exams non-members were able to apply for either CT1 (Financial Mathematics) or CT3 (Probability and Mathematical Statistics). This will give non-members the option to complete the CT1 if they have been studying towards this, or to take CT3 which, if passed, will gain a CS1 in 2019.

For September 2018 exams non-members will only be able to apply for CT3. This is because CT1 and CT5 are merging under the new curriculum and passes in both will be required to gain the CM1 exam in 2019.
