Hello In my country you need a bachelor and master to become and actuary. And that is what I am studying now. There are ofcourse some subjects you have to take, but you can also choose subjects. Of these free subjects statistics subjects are listed as reccomended. I've taken statistics classes in my bachelor degree(I have one more year left), and they are ok, but I have also taken mathematics classes and that is where the problem is. I feel that in statistics they do not prove things in an adequate way, and that annoys me. But in subjects like analysis they prove everything, it is amazing to see the enitre subject beeing built up from very basic concepts. So I would like to take more analysis courses instead of statistics courses. Is this a bad idea if I want to work as an actuary? I do not want to change to pure mathematics, because of the work oppurtunities, and I do not really think I am so smart enough to be working in those fields.
