    Attached is an updated exam question log. The chapter references refer to the new 2019 Course Notes for Subject SA1. Given the high-level nature of Subject SA1 it isn't always possible to give a specific chapter reference, and in many cases the question part will cover material from throughout the course. This is question log intended as a guide only.

    Some parts of questions have been marked as no longer examinable following the changes to Subject SA1 for 2019. Other parts could be examinable with a small modification (for example setting the question outside of the UK). This may mean that the solution would differ which you would need to consider when reviewing the Examiners' Report for the question.

    We hope you find it useful when preparing for the Subject SA1 exam.

    Kind regards

    Can you do this kind of exam question log for other subjects too such as CM1, CS2?

    For other subjects, question grids are available as part of our revision products. However, as there are no revision products for Subject SA1 we make it available on the forum to try and help students.

    Hi Sarah. Thank you for the updated exam question log. Is it possible to get the log in excel format?

    Hi Jesca

    Sorry - we can only make it available as a pdf.

  6. April 2015 Q2 iv and v: Reinsurance recaptures

    You don’t have “no longer examinable” in the comments column for this one but I am at a loss to find any details on it in the notes. Looking at the answers, it refers to the starting calculation as being the VIF but under SII I assume this approach would not be appropriate?!

    Hi Becca

    This question could absolutely still be asked - there was no material on it in the notes on 2015 either so you're not missing anything! Perhaps there may need to be some additional clarification about the solvency regime the insurer is in and therefore solution may be slightly amended. SA1 is non-EU specific, and so in a country under a different regulatory regime, VIF could still be appropriate. As you say under SII that may not be appropriate, in which case we could consider using the value of the BEL as a starting point. Similarly, the solution to part (iv) might then be slightly amended too - although many points are relevant to calculating the BEL and VIF.
