    Hey everyone, I'll be starting university this year doing maths with economics. I'll hopefully get exemptions from CT1, CT2 and another one which I forgot.

    I want to get into actuarial consulting at a top firm like Willis Towers Watson or Mercer but I have no idea how to get there. Like do I just apply for the grad scheme in my third year or can I do stuff in my first and second years to try and get there? Also, how much do actuarial employers care about extracurricular activities? I play a sport well but that's all.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
