Student Counseling

 

Students whom have written an examination with the Actuarial Society of South Africa may apply online for student counselling from the Actuarial Society for the following subjects: F1’s (ST) F2’s (SA) as well as A301 / A302 and the A420 or A402 exam. To apply for counselling for the UK based exam subjects: A101 - A103; A201 - A205 and F106 please refer to the UK Website. Such a counselling session presents a student with the opportunity to discuss their examination performance with one of the examiners. The primary purpose of student counselling is to provide unsuccessful students with insight into their performance, allowing them to prepare and perform better in future examination sessions.

 

Requirements

 

Students who have failed the examination in a subject (or more than one subject), may apply for student counselling no later than 30 days after publication of the examination results (with exception to A402 and A420 exam).

Fees

 

The fees for the student counselling will be indicated in the fees annexure of the student handbook or via the Fees and Registration link on the website. The exact fee will be indicated on the invoice that will be issued to you after your online registration.  No student counselling session will be arranged before confirmation of payment has been received. Payment instructions will be detailed on the invoice that students will receive via email or can be found on the website. No student counselling session will be arranged before confirmation of payment has been received. Payment instructions will be detailed on the student counselling request form.  The counselling fee applies to each counselling session (i.e. if a student requests counselling for 2 subjects, they will have to pay the counselling fee twice).

 

Guidelines

 Please refer to the Student Counseling Policy document for more information.

Students who have requested counselling will be contacted so that arrangements may be made with regards to scheduling, venues, etc.

When a counselling request is received from a student, the Principal Examiner for the relevant subject(s) will be informed. Once an examiner has been identified, a suitable date, time and venue will be negotiated by the ASSA administration office or Examiner, to accommodate both the examiner and the student.

 

Note: Examination counselling is not a channel for appealing an examination result. Students will not be permitted to view their own scripts during the session.
