Exam SRM: Statistics for Risk Modeling

Welcome to the SRM exam home page! Please review all of the information and links provided below.

The SRM exam is a three and one-half hour exam that consists of 35 multiple-choice questions. It is offered via computer–based testing (CBT).

Enhanced Computer Based Scheduling:

  • STEP 1: Register with the Society of Actuaries by the exam deadline date
  • STEP 2: Receive emailed Acknowledgement/Receipt, wait 1 hour, schedule a seat at a Prometric Center

The syllabus for Exam SRM provides an introduction to methods and models for analyzing data. Candidates will be familiar with regression models (including the generalized linear model), time series models, principal components analysis, decision trees, and cluster analysis. Candidates will also be able to apply methods for selecting and validating models. A thorough knowledge of calculus, probability (as covered in Exam P) and mathematical statistics (as covered in VEE Mathematical Statistics) is assumed.

As SRM is a new exam, results will not be instantaneous (at least for the first few sessions) since post-exam analysis will be required by the examination committee. Results will be released on the SOA website about 8 weeks after each testing window ends.
