Online Classroom - in Subjects CT1 - CT8, CA1, CA2, ST2, ST5 and ST8

The Online Classroom is an exciting new approach to studying for the actuarial exams. It acts as either a valuable add-on to a face-to-face tutorial or a great alternative to a tutorial, particularly if you're not based in the UK or near a tutorial venue.

Please see the specific details for the Online Classroom in Subject CA2.

Please read our introduction to the Online Classroom and its key benefits.

At the heart of the Online Classroom in each subject is a comprehensive, easily-searched collection of tutorial units. These are a mix of:
  • teaching units, helping you to really get to grips with the course material, and
  • guided questions, enabling you to learn the most efficient ways to answer questions and avoid common exam pitfalls.

Online Classroom Forums – FAQ

Click on a section title to see the answers for each section:

Our tutors aim to respond to forum queries within two working days. However, when students help each other by posting responses, queries can be answered much more quickly. We encourage everyone to post thoughts and suggestions!
Although our tutors strive to respond to forum queries as quickly as possible, there are circumstances that can delay their response, for example:
  • Where a student posts a large number of questions; such students should not expect our tutors to answer all their queries at once.
  • Sometimes our tutors have a large volume of teaching (which may involve significant travel) and they may be unable to access the resources they need in order to answer forum queries.
Whilst there isn’t a formal limit, ActEd does reserve the right to restrict tutor support in certain circumstances, eg when the questions posted suggest that the student hasn’t read the Course Notes or has not made a significant attempt to understand the material. Similarly, tutor support may be limited for students who post an excessive number of questions or questions that are too broad or unfocused in nature. We reserve this right solely to guarantee that our tutors are able to help the great majority of students who use the forums as intended to enhance their understanding of the most difficult concepts.
At the end of each study session we review the posts, retaining those that are likely to be useful to students in the future and deleting others. So before posting a query, it is worth reviewing existing posts to see if your question has already been answered! You can use the search facilities on the forums to help you.
