2022 exams

Following positive feedback from members and employers, we will continue to run our examinations online in 2022.

Our 2022 examinations will follow the same format as the April and September 2021 examinations.

To deliver a high quality, globally accessible service that meets the expectations of our members while maintaining our examinations’ integrity and high standards, we will be taking a digital first approach to IFoA examinations in the future.

We are working to improve the digital delivery of IFoA examinations as part of the IFoA Learning Change Programme.  This includes addressing candidate feedback on writing numerical formulae and sitting examinations in different time zones.
