In my area, Prometric is open on Saturday for exams. Why don't you look for yourself: http://prometric.com/SOA/default.htm
Once you pick country/state, Use the Seat Availability link.

I've never tried to schedule a weekend exam but I don't know why you shouldn't be able to.

Ignore what I said then. I guess there must be regional differences.

Some sites are also open on Sundays. It just depends how big the city is and what sort of demand there is for other exams at that particular testing site.

passed FM on a Saturday. It is a perfect day for an actuarial exam. If you pass, you can celebrate on Saturday night. If you fail, you have a weekend to recover from the sadness
