Yep, generally it's a 9-5 and doesn't have the stress of working in an IB.
Yay!!!!!!! what's an IB?

Do you know the exact process of becoming a fully fledged actuary? - As it's still on my list of possible careers

Same, well with ICT and it's coursework rather than revision, oh and I'm not actually doing much of it

lol, i can tell . I'm just trying to get a topic done before we start so i seem smart in class, lol....
It's something like 10 years or so to get to the top ranks. You need to do quite a fewexaminations to get there.... a bit like training to be a surgeon. The top rankers earn more than £300k p.a. but i'm not hoping to go that far. I just want enough to pay all my depts, get a house, and get my family started....... I have more info somewhere in my messy room, I'll find it tonight and give you the actual details if you wish, (can't be asked to do it right now). Doing a maths degree is like completeing about 3 or 5 of them (can't remember), I think I still have to take the tests but I would have covered most of the mathematics required in my degree.

Cheers, hope that didn't distract too much from the Chem
I've heard the pay is really good £55k p.a. average or something plus like you said much more for those at the top. So financially it seems like a good career plus not that much stress only thing is that I'm guessing it's quite tedious particularly at first.
I'm doing Maths and Economics at uni (hopefully) so I'm guessing I would have also covered a fair few exams, anyway still loads of time to decide upon a career

It's alright, I was hoping for a bit of distraction, lol. I think i'm more interested in research mathematics, but if i follow that career I'll end up poor! So i'm going to make some money while i'm young, then go back to uni. It seems like an alright job, I know it's going to get boring but I guess with the free time during the week I'll go to a few classes like dancing, piano, etc....... Plus with all the money I can afford to treat myself to luxury holidays hehe...

If you're working in the city the average pay is at least £100k p.a. plus you get bonuses as well (some people say that's where the real money is). You start at something like £30k p.a. (that's a lot for beginners salary!), then it rises quickly.

Well I'll definately work in the city (probably London) whatever career I go for, as I'd get bored anywhere remotely rural. So thats good I guess.

My plan is to get a reasonable grad position and work my way up to get a fair amount of money so I can eventually start-up my own business, I'm an entrepreneur at heart

wow, good luck! I just want a basic job, not too stressful, can afford to give things to my future family my old man couldn't give me. What ever I do I want a job that pays more than £80k p.a. I want a big house and the latest car out at that time, lol

I'm the same in wanting a big house, best car etc. but once I've got it, I know I'll want a bigger house, newer car...sad really

Anyway as I also want a really challenging and to some extent a stressful job I hopefully should be able to get a fair bit of money and be in a good position to become my own boss and give my family a really good quality of life.

I'm exactly the same every week!
By Thursday I get a reasonable sleeping pattern back then I go out Friday and Saturday causing me to lie in on Sunday, then here I am and will drop down at 6ish when I get back from college tomorrow and like you said get up at some stupid hour. I suppose it's much easier for me to do work once everyones asleep though as there no distractions from family, phone etc.

I've never seen anyone about it and some of my mates do simialr things, you know it's crazy when you sign on msn at 5am to be added to a convo by a couple of your mates. :eek:

Ditto, with going out with friends... but it's all good, 'these are the best days of our lives', apperently. :rolleyes:

More work at uni
But I'm sure you're right, the saying is probably coz most people don't go to uni.

By the way, where you applied?
