Actuarial Common Entrance Test (ACET) for IAI

ActEd offers Course Notes and Online Coaching to help students pass ACET. Our Course Notes and Online Classroom cover the Mathematics and Statistics parts of the entrance test. They do not cover the English, Data Interpretation and Logic elements of the test.

Study Manuals

There are two sets of Course Notes:

Foundation ActEd Course (FAC) covers all the pure mathematics in the ACET syllabus.

StatsPack similarly covers all the statistical elements of the syllabus.

Students have been using these manuals to prepare for ACET since its introduction in 2011.

They contain easy-to-follow notes, examples and self-assessment questions to test understanding as well as lots of extra questions to help you prepare for the exam.

They can be purchased as eBooks or hard-copy notes. Please read the important information below about our eBooks before ordering.
