Part III also requires 45 weeks (or thereabouts, can't remember exact figure) of work experience under an FIAA and doing actuarial work (as well as a listening to some Professionalism Talk).

Note also that with the implementation of the new syllabus, 103 and 104 have been combined into a single Exemption unit. (The remaining current Exemption units have direct counterparts in the new syllabus.) The new syllabus takes affect for the first years of 2004, and all universities offering Actuarial Studies are in a transitional phase.

Yes, for Part III, by the time we do it, there will be four units of study, two of which will be compulsory. They are in essence half-year units.


http://www.actuaries.asn.au/

From there you can visit the Institute website in London.

Well, that's if things go wrong again and again and again...

Otherwise, the future rewards are fixed and certain (to some extent) =p

I'm not sure if it's getting harder and harder?

If anything Part III is easier because it has been split into four parts. So there is less content to learn in one attempt.

one thing i forgot to mention wrt exemptions : for those students doing commerce/science with a com major in actl and a science major in either of stats or maths, u shouldnt be doing actl2002. instead u should do both (higher) theory of statistics and (higher) linear models. that will give u ur actl2002 exemption

Ok. One of us is definitely confused.

I was under the impression it was Higher Linear Algebra that was the exemption subject, and not Higher Linear Models. And I know quite a few other people that are under this impression.

So how do we go about checking on this?

Never mind. I checked. You are right. Linear Models is the exemption subject.
