yea this seems strange to me. you put in a ton of work to pass these exams, and then don't list them anywhere when you apply for a job? what?

Was looking at a resume the other day. We were kind of tentative if we wanted to give the candidate a phone screen since they had no exams listed. Site was down so I couldn't check. Turns out they've got three exams.

Yeah, if a résumé has that much report lag, the candidate should have known to include a passed-but-not-reported calculation.

I did the written ACAS exams prior to the semiannual offerings of 5 and 6, so I skipped a prelim so I could work on it in the event that I was waiting a year to take my last ACAS exam. Actuarial-lookup hence says I was like 10th percentile at finishing the prelims -___-
