<br />Hello Derivative Trader,

have you been in Pakistan last month or so, i thought i met you.

Yes I had been in Pakistan for past 6 weeks. I have just gotten to London last Tuesday. Where did you meet me?

DT

You visited Alchemy Associates

Did you?

syed and sumaan, the exemptions for soa exams for university actuarial science students starts in a year or two,a student studying at the university of pennsylvania told me that, the exemptions havent started yet i'm sure about that,but the soa has made a new rule, it's about to be implemented. syed write an e-mail to the soa, i think writing an e-mail to the ombudsman will be better. i hope that helps

Yes, please let us know about that.

I have a friend who is giving SOA exams and he told me his cousin in LSE would be exempted from the first four SOA exams after completing BSc. in Actuarial Sciences.

Are you sure they currently offer no exemptions?

ur cousin will basically get exemptions from the ioa exams but he can also get exemptions from the soa exams because there is an agreement between soa and ioa. lse is a british university, ioa gives exemptions to students of british universities, but soa does not give exemptions to student of american univerities

YES THANX,I am clarified to a much extent, but i still dont know what is meant by the term "exemptions". hope you wont find it a baby question

And this question is for derivative trader! could you tell me the names of those universities which are recognized as best for actuarial sciences? i am just looking for universities because i am just finished with my A-levels. thanx

It's not a 'baby' question.

Exemption mean that suppose your institution has an agreement witha a particular awarding body and if you manage to secure a certain amount of numbers/marks you will get that exemtion to the correspoding professional exam by that awarding body.

For instance, there is, at the time of writing, an agreement by LSE with the IOA that if any student of the LSE secure a certain amount of numbers in some degree level courses then he/she may be exempt from taking correspoding IOA exams.

I hope it clarifies a bit but please feel free to ask if it still doesn't make sense.

Its personal decision but I wouldn't just look for actuarial science programme's rating but would also look for university's stading on its own. For instance, in the UK, City University may have a better actuarial science dept. than the LSE, but most employers would still prefer an LSE graduate over City. This might be naive but I would go for the university brand and would care about the programme's reputation to a lesser extent. In UK/US, most people haven't studied the subjects relating to their professions but their employers only hire students from a targetted institution.

So, if I were you I would take Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Physics, Economics from any of the following institutions,

UK

Oxbridge, LSE & Imperial College.

US

Ivy League and some Liberal Art schools.

Good Luck
