Information for the 2019 exams

Our 2019 Brochure contains full details of availability of 2019 materials as well as our full range of products to help you with your study. For advice about which products to choose, please read our product guide.

If you have never ordered from ActEd before, have a look at our placing your first order page for helpful tips. If you need further advice about which products to order, please see Help and Advice for New Students.

The introduction of the IFoA’s new education strategy has resulted in a number of changes this year, but the majority of our most popular products that you are familiar with will be available as normal. Our core product, the CMP, will be available in all subjects but with the Question and Answer Bank being integrated Notes as Practice Questions at the end of each chapter.

The new CMP in each CS and CM Subject also includes some new Paper B Online Resources (PBOR) to help you prepare for the new computer‐based exam using Excel or R. The traditional Regular or Block Tutorials for the CS and CM Subjects will focus on the skills required for Paper A, but we are also offering an additional day’s tuition for those wanting some face‐to‐face or Live Online support for Paper B.

Study Guides contain details of the study support available, assignment deadlines, advice on how to study efficiently and the full Syllabus for your subject.

The new Tuition Bulletin for the session leading to the April 2019 exams is now available. Please apply for your tutorials using our e-store where you will be able to view provisional venues and see an indication of the number of spaces available on each course.

As we like to keep our materials as up to date as possible, some of the study materials are not available until midway through a session. However, you are still encouraged to place your order in full at the start of the session. We’ll despatch immediately all the items available at the time of your order and automatically send any outstanding items as they become available. Expected availability dates for study material are listed on the key dates page.

Retaking a subject this year: Given this year’s new education strategy, in most subjects we recommend you buy a new CMP. Special retaker discounts are available for students who have previously purchased similar material at the full price from ActEd.

Finally, when ordering from ActEd, we encourage you to use our e-store to ensure that your order is processed as quickly as possible.

Good luck with your studies for the 2019 exams.
