“ACTUARIAL SCIENCE – OVERVIEW, CAREER PATHWAYS, AND THE SOCIETY OF ACTUARIES’ PROBABILITY EXAM”
by Brendan Evert, Emma Moore, Meredith Peterson ‘21, Yiting Shen and Yew-Meng Koh, PhD,
Actuarial Science is an interesting and practical field, with rewarding career outcomes. The American Society of Actuaries offers a sequence of exams, the passing of which allows certification in this field. One of these exams is the Probability Exam (P Exam), for which Hope has a MATH365/366 course sequence which helps interested students in their preparation. In this talk, a brief overview of Actuarial Science and its possible career pathways will be presented. We will then focus on the P Exam by discussing its requirements and solving a past year problem from this exam. We will also have comments and encouragement from some Math and Stat department students who passed the P Exam in its Jan 2023 and Jan 2021 offerings.
