Default When do Actuary Exams "expire"?

I completed the Probability and FM exams a few years ago. I want to say that the P exam was 3 years ago and the FM was two years ago. I completed the FM right before graduating with my Bachelor's Degree and am now about to finish my last year of master's degree in Statistics.

If I want to take another shot at entering the actuarial field, will I need to retake one or more of these exams that I have already completed?

No, you will not need to retake those exams.

In general, the credit for SOA/CAS exams don't expire... but you can lose the benefit of that credit if the exam systems go through so many changes between when you start and finish that they're worth nothing.

But that's more for people who take decades to finish.
