Health and Care Principles (SP1)

Specialist Principles

The aim of Health and Care Principles (SP1) is to develop a student’s ability to apply, in simple situations, the main principles of actuarial planning and control that are relevant to the provision of health and care business.
It builds on material covered in earlier subjects and seeks to equip a student with the skills and broad working understanding of health and care business to the level that may be required of a qualified actuary in a health and care insurance company.

Health and Care Principles (SP1) core reading is available from the IFoA E-Shop or our tuition provider ActEd (BPP).

From September 2021, an additional 5 minutes has been added to each paper to allow for candidates to download or print, if required, their exam paper.
