What are the exams like?

The exams aren't easy. The exams are challenging. They are long, primarily multiple choice, and usually every question is worth one point; only correct answers count in your score. Even very strong students find that they must practicepractice, practice on old exams in addition to learning the academic material in their regular classes. Plan to spend many hours taking complete old exams and sample exams, scoring them, then studying what you missed if you intend to succeed.

Feel free to reach out to any of the officers for help navigating the exam process. There are many resources made available to you through the Actuarial Science Club, including study manuals available to members and study groups for certain exams. Take advantage of them! Do not be afraid to ask for help.
