Question Transition Credits: Pass FA, Fail IA ?

In the following situation, would you receive transition credit for the Final Assessment and just have to do the new 7 EOM mini-IAs?
  • Passed EOM 1-4, 6-7
  • Failed IA
  • Passed FA

The SOA's description of the changes to FAP seems to indicate that the new FA is similar to the old one, just with more consistent grading timelines and better feedback. It's only logical that they would allow the credit to transfer.

However, this situation was not explained on the SOA's transition credit page. I find this strange as I personally know a number of people who are in this situation, so I am sure that there are more.

I couldn't find any threads related to this here. I emailed the SOA to find out, but I don't know what their current response time is. Thanks in advance.

in my experience, the soa is very good about answering emails timely. if you just emailed them today though, i doubt they are going to answer you on a Saturday.

I spoke too soon with my contingency planning - I passed IA! The SOA did email me back: "Candidates in this situation would need to contact us as their account would need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis."
