Advice for students studying Subject CP3 for the September 2017 exam


The IFoA will be introducing CP3 – the new communications subject – from September 2017. On 22 May 2017 details of the new syllabus, a specimen exam paper, example marking schedule, and some additional exam guidance were made available on the IFoA’s website. ActEd’s CMP for CP3 (the Course Notes and Assignments) will be available from the end of June. One-day CP3 tutorials have already been timetabled. A CP3 mock exam will be made available by the end of July 2017. We are planning to produce an Online Classroom for CP3 after September 2017.

We recommend that you study for CP3 after you have tackled all of the CTs and CA1. When thinking about when to take CP3 please also bear in mind that it can’t be ‘crammed’, as it requires practice!

We’ve got lots of tools and resources to help you maximise your chance of success in the CP3 exam … have a look at the ‘Timeline for Success’ below, and Click on the individual elements for more information. Planning ahead will pay dividends!
