The fact that you just missed a percentage in your maths course doesn't you can't become an actuary. I think you may want to get register with the actuarial profession (IOA or SOA) and try to give at least a couple of the exams. If you do that and provided you pass them, employers would see the potential in you and perhaps overlook your deficiency in maths at HSC.
