Grading - Hand scoring of Exams

If a candidate believes there may have been an error in the scoring of his/her answer sheet for a paper/pencil, multiple–choice exam, the candidate may request a hand scoring of the answer sheet. A request for hand scoring must be made by completing the Application for Hand Scoring of Paper/Pencil Multiple–Choice Exams   and sending it to the Society of Actuaries within 60 days after exam grades are released. An administrative fee of $50 payable by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express), Certified Check or Money Order, (in U.S. dollars), will be charged for each hand score request.

Hand scoring is a verification that the scan sheet was scored correctly. It is not a verification of anything that was written in the exam booklets, nor does this process transfer anything from the exam booklet to the scan sheet.

Do not request hand scoring services until you have received your grade from the SOA. Please contact the Education Department at 847.273.8831 or handscoring@soa.org for more information.
