    The work is enjoyable but more exams for the next few years is not :nn:
    Hmm, yeah. :sad: Are you a trainee then? Do these exams lead to bigger things and, more importantly, more money? :curious:

    Yeah, well I'm an "Actuarial Analyst" for now. You get pay rises (specific amount dependent on work performance and the level of exam) for each exam you pass. So on top of the standard annual increase, the salary can shoot up a quite a rate. One only needs to search for qualified/part-qualified actuarial jobs to see an example of this.

        wow! And the company are sponsoring you, or are you paying yourself? :holmes: Just think, in a few years time you will end up with pure work enjoyment and no exams (hopefully). :moon:

          Yeah, they're sponsoring me. I took one exam by myself before I joined the company, but it was really expensive. I am certainly looking forward to the day I'm fully qualified!

          Political scientists carry out research and form hypotheses as well. :ahee: For example I might be interested in what party TSR users are more likely to vote for. How's the best way to figure this out? How will I determine if my results are reliable/valid? etc.


          There's all this standard deviation and regression malarkey which I really hate . :nopity:

          Good girl. :whip: Mine is at 9-10 on Monday morning, but then that's me done for the year (calendar, not academic of course). :yeah:



          My whole tiredness has just flipped over. I woke up fine at 7am today, and am still not tired, even though I've been up so long. Maybe being more active helps. :curious:
