Actuary2B, Would you mind letting us know where are you studying for the Actuarial Exams, and that whether are you with any organisation, who is funding your studies? Thanks DT <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial" size=2 id=quote>

I can afford to pay exam fees myself. For SOA(U.S) track, the exams fees under "DISCOUNT FEE PROGRAM" is $50 perexam for initial exams while $100 perexam for upper exams.

The Actual exam fees are pretty high, SoA has a DISCOUNT FEE PROGRAM for students in 3rd world countries. For taking exams under this reduced-fee program, the students have to registered themselves via an application to SoA.

IoA(U.K) also has a reduced-fee program for students in Pakistan. Generally speaking, the exams fees for IoA exams are even cheaper than SoA's. I don't have exact idea about IoA exam fees since Ivn't taken any exams under IoA.

You can get the DISCOUNT FEE Application forms, perparation materials for first few IoA/SoA exams,exam syllabi,exam application forms and all other relevent info about the career from the following address

Statelife Bluiding#9,
6th floor, Actuarial division
Dr.Ziauddin Ahmed Road,Karachi

Good luck,

If you want to practice in Pakistan in the future, Institute of Actuaries (UK) and Soceity of Actuaries (SOA) carry more or less the same value...

If you see yourself in UK or USA in the near future, then studying through their respective 'boards' would be certainly better.

actuary2B,
do the statelife actuarial division personnel offer free assistance and help to private actuarial students or do they only guide their own trainee students under their employment?

Yeah they offer 'free' advice to prospective students... Don't exactly know whether they guide students who are not their trainees regarding exam approach, but they have a pretty friendly atmosphere there.
