    I'm at the University of Leicester studying a BSc in Economics. I did initially apply for their Mathematics and Actuarial Science course which gives CT1-CT8 exemptions but later on decided that I didn't want to be restricted by early specialisation in my studies and so applied for a successful course transfer to Economics.

    I'm in my first year and will most likely self-study and sit atleast half of the core technical exams before my three years are over. From there it'll be graduate program + 2 years part time Masters in Actuarial Management. So work + study basically What about you?
    I missed out on the grades I needed for my offer to study Act Sci at City, so I decided that it's best if I reapply for the same course for 2014 since I wanted to take up Econ (AS & A2 in one year), in addition to a couple retakes. Also going to start preparing for STEP soon since if I'm gonna be a year late might as well have something extra to show for it! If I don't get into City my other choice is Manchester

    Good luck to you in your studies.

    Likewise! As for the econ in a year, if anybody tries to put you down to say it's not possible, ignore them. I had the whole college scrutinizing my choice to study A-Level Maths in a year but I got that grade A in the end. 3 AS's and a A2 Module in jan, 1 as retake + 2 a2 modules in june. IT CAN BE DONE!
