I passed all three fellowship exams the first sitting

“I used Rising Fellow for the last three fellowship exams. I went from passing roughly 50% of the time on prelims, to passing all three fellowship exams in a row. The exam cookbook and online course were amazing. Whenever I talk to fellow actuaries, I always mention how amazing the study material is and that it’s totally worth the investment.”

Getting my FCAS would have been harder without Rising Fellow

“I used Rising Fellow for all of my upper level exams, including passing Exam 9 in Spring 2022 to get my FCAS. I’m certain it’s still the best seminar on the market, particularly in preparing you for the CBT environment. As a mid-30s career changer, I have no doubt getting my FCAS would have been much more difficult had I gone with something other than Rising Fellow for my fellowship-level exams.”
