That's correct. This applies to everyone using any of our products for the spring 2020 sitting. If the exam is delayed, we will extend you to the new date. If the exam is canceled SOA-wide or at a specific site, we will bump your access to the next available exam date.

Interestingly that actuaries presumably understand ethics and risks very well but don't care much about public health hazard.

That's not very fair. I'm sure they're going to cancel or delay it eventually, it's just a measure they're going to have to do it very carefully.


As we've all pointed out, there's a long list of possible solutions. As frustrating as it is, they're just taking their time doing the full analysis on all of those solutions.

CAS updated their COVID-19 response:

Looks like a whole lot of nothing. Not clear if they're moving the exams or not. Yay.

The College Board is cancelling the May 2 SAT sitting, and the ACT April 4 sitting is being rescheduled to June 13.

I'm sitting MAS-I in April (~5 weeks from now). According to CAS the exam is still on, but looking at where things are headed (especially since I am taking it in NJ) it doesn't look likely. I am a senior in college and the fact that I am at home as a senior is really bogging down my motivation lol.
