FYI,

Someone made an actuarial-lookup for the UK (IFoA) exams. It's been circulating on one of their forums this week.

Looks pretty similar to ours, with less analysis. Better looking site though.

you don't have to do all the exams listed on the site- sometimes it's 'pick 2 of x' sort of thing. also, they grant exam exemptions from university courses. pass rates are fairly comparable to SOA exams though.

Is there something wrong with the latest query? Some exams are being duplicated.

Did the SOA change formats to make it more difficult to extract the data?

Don't put too much weight on travel times for this site. Of course it has travel times rising, it's because it only captures students that both started and finished their FSA after 2007. If someone started immediately when the site started keeping track of the data then the max travel time it would recognize is 9 years. Obviously it's skewed towards the faster travel times right now.

If the site only captured data since 2014 people would be shocked the median travel time was only 1.8 years. Then next year people would be theorizing why students are getting so much dumber since the travel time slowed to 2.7 years.

I was under the impression we all knew this already.
