    I'm in first year of a level and have been researching through uni degree's. In the future I am hoping to be an Actuary, do you think its better to chose an actuarial maths degree or just a maths degree??

    I'm also stuck in the same dilemma as you. The benefit of doing an actuarial science degree is that certain exemptions are made when it comes to doing your professional examinations. Having said that, a mathematics degree is also a really good degree to hold, as you can go into a wide range of careers with it.

    Doing a straight maths degree would leave you with far more options than just actuary, so it may be wise to do that in case you find you dislike what an actuary does on a day to day basis.

    However if you have any experience with being an actuary and you enjoy it then a degree in actuary would be the quickest and probably best way to do it.

    Depends on your personal interests and what you want from a degree.
