Module 1: 24/5/18
Module 2: 30/5/18
Module 3: 1/6/18
Module 4: 2/6/18
Interim: 8/6/18

I guess ill get a grade on all of them next month?

Also, is it possible to go for Final Module without having previous ones graded?

Yes you can do all the modules even though previous ones have not been graded. If you meant "Final Assessment," then the same applies, as you can start the FA once you submit Module 8. I believe several years ago you had to pass the IA to take the FA, but that is not the case as of right now.

I finally received results from my first module exercise: a pass dated June 12 on my exam transcript. However, my ELearning still does not reflect this. To those checking on grades, you may want to check your transcript in addition to ELearning.

On a separate note, I am really proud of my EOM1 work and wish I could offer it as a writing sample to potential employers--I've expedited the interview process in the past by sharing my writing. I suppose I can't even show FSAs? It may be my best writing to date.

Where are you looking in eLearn? Based on my experience, the grading result shows up in eLearn before it hits the transcript. It shows up on the submission slide.

Thank you, Crispy--you are correct.

Why would I want a recent sample of actuarial writing in which I am confident and of which I am proud handy in the event an interviewer is interested?

Well first, I believe I excel at writing. Second, I once bypassed the phone interview step and got directly invited to a job site after the department head read my writing. In fact, he wrote me 15 minutes after I sent him a writing sample and asked me to come in to interview. On another occasion, I submitted a writing sample for a well-paying remote job and received an offer by the end of the week, never needing to interview (yes, that is kind of strange).

I have read advice that suggests bringing a writing sample to interviews, as well. And I feel my quality of written communication makes up for me not being terribly quick on my feet during real interviews (though I have improved drastically in that regard).

I see no downside and history has been kind. I may email e-learning in fact to see if I would be permitted to share my work with an FSA interviewer. Otherwise, my last academic writing goes back 6 years to grad school--and I have improved since then.

Not sure I understand your incredulity.
