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

Student members have until 31 December 2022 to claim their exemptions.

Who is not eligible for exemptions?

Members who joined the IFoA after 17:00 (BST) on the 31 July 2019 are not eligible for exemptions based on the exam passes from the Institute of Actuaries in India.  If you joined the IFoA after the 31st July 2019, please see the Transfer of Prior Learning category for further details before you consider IFoA student membership.
