How To Pass
Insurance licensing exams are challenging. Whether you’re preparing for the South Carolina Life & Health insurance exam or you’re thinking about getting a Property & Casualty license in SC, studying is the key to success.
Most exam prep courses focus on rote memorization. At America’s Professor, we don’t believe this approach is very useful or effective. When you have a strong grasp on the material, you’re less likely to be thrown off by small details and tricky questions.
America’s Professor is here to help. Enrolling in one of our comprehensive South Carolina (SC) pre-licensing courses will arm you with the knowledge you need to pass your exam on the first try.
Keep reading for answers to some of the most common questions our students have about the South Carolina insurance licensing exams.
What kinds of questions are on the exam?
The exam questions are multiple choice, and there are no fill-in questions. But that doesn’t mean the questions are easy!
Insurance is full of jargon and complex concepts. On your exam you’ll see terms like “indemnity,” “contract of adhesion,” and “concurrent causation.” You must know what these terms mean and how insurance policies work.
No two exams are exactly alike. You will see a different set of questions than other test takers. Students have told us that the exams tend to be broken down in the following way:
- Around 1/3 of the questions are terminology (definitional) questions
- Around 1/3 are number/day questions
- Around 1/3 are short story problems (practical reasoning)
Insurance information is not common knowledge. It’s not something you pick up in day-to-day life. Being prepared for your exam means dedicating the time to study for it.
When should I start studying?
If possible, spend a full week (35-40 hours) studying, like you would with an in-person class. If this isn’t possible because of work or school, set a strict study schedule and stick to it.
Keep reviewing the materials right up until the night before the exam. Review your notes frequently to keep the information fresh in your mind.
Don’t cram before the exam. Research shows this is the worst way to study. Your goal should be to actually understand and retain the information, not simply memorize answers.
What score do I need to pass the South Carolina insurance exam?
The South Carolina Department of Insurance requires a score of 70 to pass each exam. The exam consists of a mix of both national and state-specific questions.
Your exam will be scored on the spot, so you will know right away whether you passed. But you will not be told which specific questions you got right or wrong.
If you don’t pass the exam, you can sign up to retake it after the required waiting period (usually 24-72 hours).
How do I sign up for the exam?
You must create an account with PSI Exams (the company that administers the exams in South Carolina) to register for an exam. Create an account as soon as possible and go online to schedule your exam at least 3-7 days in advance. This will help ensure you get the exam date of your choice.
Can I take the exam online?
Yes! PSI Exams offers proctored exams online. This means someone monitors you through your computer’s webcam while you take the exam.
How much is the exam fee?
The exam fee is $45. You must pay a separate fee to PSI Exams for each exam attempt.
How many questions are on the South Carolina exam?
The number of questions varies for each exam but usually ranges from 100-150 questions. Here are some examples:
- South Carolina Life and Health Insurance License exam: 150 questions
- South Carolina Life Insurance License exam: 100 questions
- South Carolina Property, Casualty, Surety, and Marine Insurance Producer exam: 150 questions
- South Carolina Property Insurance Producer: 100 questions
Refer to the Candidate Information Bulletin for the total number of questions on each exam.
