In terms of difficulty, do you think that this exam is comparable with P, FM, IFM?
I'm scared.

I think it depends. If you find computational exams easier then SRM may be of a bit more difficulty than P and FM. If you find compuatational exams difficult then SRM might be easier to crack for you.

I agree. You have to have the full understanding of the concepts to answer those tricky questions.

Wasup guys, just asked SOA when the SRM Results will be out, and they said that the

January SRM passing candidate numbers will be out March 8, Pacific Time and
Grades will be released March 11, Pacific Time.

Congrats! Passed as well.

May I know how to enable being texted for an exam result?

Thanks.

Congrats!
I got a text message as well. Do you provide a cell phone number in your SOA account profile?

I do. Although I never received a text message in all my other exams. Probably because I'm in a third world country? I dunno

Hi All, how long do you guys prepare for this one? I was planning to take it in September, but it will be too late for me to wait for the result if I want to sit for December PA (best scenario of passing SRM at the first attempt)

Thanks!

Normally, pass lists for CBT exams are posted the first Friday 8 weeks after the CBT window concludes (as the SRM exam syllabus says, "[r]esults will be released on the SOA website about 8 weeks after each testing window ends."). The Sep 2019 CBT window for Exam SRM will end on Sep 11 and the first Friday 8 weeks after Sep 11 is Nov 8, while the registration deadline for the Dec 2019 Exam PA is Nov 12. So if you pass the Sep 2019 SRM, you should be able to register for the Dec 2019 PA in time.

It is a good idea to confirm with the SOA.
