Hi all, i couldn't find a thread on actuarial science, maybe i missed it so i thought of starting one. I am still a college student, looking into the possibilities of me being an actuarist. Everyone is telling me that this will be a very tough programme and am asked to consider again and again, that indirectly discourages me to be an actuarist. What exactly one has to go through until he becomes a fellow actuarist?Also, why the papers that an actuarist has to sit for are said to be so tough? Is it because of the syllabus covered or time limitations? Any advice or pointers in this will be greatly appreciated.
