Default Exam Raises for exams passed prior to entering study program

If you work for an employer that requires you to pass an exam while working before you are allowed to enter the study program, do you get a raise for that exam? Or do you have to be officially in the program before you can get raises?
Being an actuary is 3% talent and 97% not being distracted by the internet.

This has been my experience.

From what I've seen, it's usually the case that you would not get the exam raise for that exam.

You typically have to be in the program already, study for the exam and then pass to get that applicable exam raise.

Side note for others: I have seen the case where a student could be hired into an actuarial student role, and if you pass an exam between the time you accept and the time you actually start, you could be eligible for that exam raise. (But that's obviously something that needs to be mentioned in the compensation portion of the contract.)
