Property and Casualty(so called GI in India) Actuaries pursue their credentials through the CAS; all other actuaries pursue their credentials through the SOA. The preliminary exams P, FM, and MFE are only administered by the SOA and credit for these exams is currently honored by the CAS. Refer to each sites’ exam requirements to see where the requirements differ beyond the preliminary exams.
