Maybe you'll have more luck getting an answer, though.

Hi Marcie,
I am here to expose the stuff going on in my profession. They keep taking my stuff off other chat forums. I am not here to get in to fights. I promise. The folks on this forum are pretty decent. Feel free to ask me anything you want.
I will do my best to answer..

Hi Oldtimer, I think there are 4-5 people with legal proceedings against the IFOA. As and when I recieve the judgements, I will post them up.
I should also say that many actuaries really should open their eyes to what their profession is up to. I was very much like the others in the profession. I believed that the profession conducted it self with integrity and honesty. What a load of BS that was. That is why now attempt to disclose their wrongdoing. Most actuaries are decent. Most professional bodies are not.

At least two people asked before me, but some things bear repeating.

January 2012 – Claimant sits CA3 exam
April 2012 – EHRC makes contact with IFoA re discrimination
April 2012 – Claimant sits SA2 exam
April 2012 – Claimant informed he has failed CA3 exam
April 2012 – Claimant issues SAR to IFoA to obtain detailed CA3 exam results
April 2012 – IfoA staff members says in email they will “keep a watch” on Claimants SA2 exam progress
May 2012 – Claimant receives detailed mark breakdown for failed CA3 exam
July 2012 – Claimant informed he has failed SA2 exam
July 2012 – Claimant issues SAR to IFoA to try to obtain detailed exam results
July/August 2012 – IFoA staff via email say the have “no marks” to share with Claimain
August 2012 – Exam result provided, but in no more detail than original
Later 2012 – Claimant gets exam counselling review of SA2 exam which he is not happy with
…
…
August 2017 – Claimant writes to IFoA questioning current situation
October 2017 – Claimant told to focus questions on the IFoA rather than individuals
October 2017 – Claimant told that making allegations of professional misconduct without evidence is a breach of the actuaries code
November 2017 – Claimant told questions have been forwarded to legal team
…
Thank you for this summary; that helps a lot.

For those of us who don't know the UK exams (or are they IFoA exams? Yes, I am an ignorant American who is only familiar with the exams that I actually took and the ones my students are taking), what's the difference between CA3 and SA2? I think in one of your posts you mentioned that one had a presentation component and the other did not, which may (or may not) explain the differing level of details provided?

Yes, it certainly sounds like that.

Particularly given the belligerent tone that Almost_There is taking whenever anyone asks relevant questions.
