Q: Can I discuss the Final Assessment with someone else?

A: Yes, you may discuss the assessment (tasks/solutions/Excel files) with your supervisor or an ASA or FSA. Candidates are also encouraged to form study groups via the Learning Companion. Refer to the Learning Companion via the e-Learning website to form study groups in your area and to coordinate the timing of the download of your Final Assessment with others.

Your final submitted files must be your work and your work only. Having another person(s) write, review or edit your submission, or plagiarizing another personís work, including model solutions, is strictly prohibited. Failing to adhere to the SOA Terms and Conditions Agreement for e-Learning Candidates to which you agreed to upon registration subjects you to disciplinary action ranging from one year to a lifetime ban.

I think that rule changed a few years back, so there is some confusion. When I took it in early 2018 though, it was the same rule, you couldn't have anyone read it for you. This rule makes sense. I'm not sure why that rule wasn't in place before. It isn't your own work anymore once someone is reviewing it for you.

With some people who post on here confused by this rule though, it makes me question if people who take FA actually read the instructions where it's very clearly spelled out as against the rules.

i could be wrong, but this rule makes it sound like writing style and getting your point across is more important than anything else in the assignment. I think my way too many years of working in the field before doing FAP and having to write in a business setting probably helped me.
