    Crucial Question on VEE application

    I decided to take VEE Econ first before Exam FM and I will be taking the CLEP for this. Could I send the scores to SOA even if I only have one exam passed yet?

    It doesn't really matter for anything but your ASA, so I wouldn't bother. Plus, they only look at it once you've passed two exams.

    From the soa website:

    Meaning they won't discard my sending of scores, and just look at it when I pass two exams right? This means, I would only get accreditation letter after when I pass two exams. Thanks.

    Sure. They should put you in touch with someone in the VEE department.

    Thanks, will do right away. I just really asked this because a $50 transcript from CLEP is too much than a free sending of scores to SOA.

    I cannot fully remember. But it is something like 5 Steps to a 5: AP Economics. I also used Cliff Notes for Macro and Micro Economics.
