Actuarial Science is core statistics by in large. So, if you think you are competent with Stats (atleast upto A Level Stats Level), then I am sure you would be OK.

Good Luck.

Hi,
You're welcome...

1. There is no aptitude test for SOA nor IOA... However, you have to meet the pre-requisites/requirements for registering yourself...

2. No aptitude test!

3. Registration is not based on a seat basis... All students who register can get registered.

I'm an American actuary in London and I'm exploring Pakistan to open a branch office of the global consultancy I work for to serve the Subcontinent.

From what I've read in this thread, Pakistani actuaries are paid approximately half of what Indian actuaries are for an entry level position. There are few actuaries, but there is an actuarial science program in Karachi University. Does anyone see a problem with opening an office here (language or transport or politics) and serve Indian clients? Can anyone describe the current environment for actuarial consultancies in Pakistan?

Crazymath,

Where did you get the statistics about number of qulaified actuaries in Pakistan from?

Beside State Life, which is the biggest actuarial consultancy in Pakistan? Their website/email addresses would be of more help.

Do you have the career breakdown statistics about the remuneration for Actuaries in Pakistan?

Thanks.
DT

With a community of very few people, you almost know each other, or atleast have heard about someone. About the remuneration, it depends where you are working and in what area.

Largest company, 4 companies in Pakistan and the 5th one started off about one and a half year ago all are the best.

Dear Sumaan!!!!!

Salam,
Very happy to see ppl like u helping Students. It's indeed something to be appreciated.

I am thinking about getting admission in ICMAP. Tell me about the hidden facts of ICMAP. I have met one or 2 fellows of that institute, and what i gathered from there info is this that it is quite difficult. What is its scope here in Pakistan and foriegn. It takes about 3 years as far as the course time is concerned, but can it be completed in this time ? if not, y. I hope u will make everything clear to me.

Secondly, would u kindly care to send the actuarial student handbook to me too, the same u sent to Waqas. Waiting for ur response. Thnx for the time!!!!!!!!!!

Thankyou,

It would have been better if you would have told me about your qualifications or educational status. Over the past years, and even today, the fear of CA/ICMA/CIMA studies still prevails over the students. If you are 'really' determined to excel, I think all the abstacles can be overcomed. 'Hold on to your dreams and they'll hold on to you.. Take every step in life as a chance to learn something new'. Don't hold back only coz its difficult, the ones who did it started from scratch as well.

The course takes approximately 3 years, might take more depending on the student. After you complete ICMA, you become a CMA. I was going through an article on this very website by Mr.Malik Pervez who himself is a CA, ACCA, CIMA, CIA qualified. He stated that in Pakistan there are less CMA's than CA's mainly becoz of the lack of awareness amongst young students. Mr.Pervez is currently working in A.F.Fergusons in Islamabad as Assistant Manager. The article can be found here http//www.accountancy.com.pk/articles_students.asp?id=87

But the prospects of CMA's is very bright in Pakistan. Although, in UK, CIMA is as expected more recognized as its a local degree.

However, please note, the minimum requirement for ICMA is graduation.

For the syllabus and course outline of ICMA, please visit the following link
http//www.icmap.com.pk/syllabus.htm

The total number of ICMA examinations is twenty three.

The actuarial student handbook will be emailed to you today at your yahoo address. (710KB, pdf file)

I hope that answers all your questions.
