GH revised examinations will be given for the first time in fall 2019. The two previous five‐hour exams, Group and Health Core (C) and Group and Health Advanced (A) will be replaced by two new exams, Design & Pricing (DP) and Finance & Valuation (FV). The FV exam will have Canadian and U.S. versions. To aid in the transition, for four exam sessions (ending with the Fall 2021 administration) the new exams will be offered in segments that relate to the previous core and advanced exams.
