    Hi there I'm currently employed as an actuarial consultant and I am sitting CT1 & CT5 in April!

    Sort of trying to pre-empt the imminent exam changes coming in the syllabus. How about yourself?

    Good stuff. I'm currently unemployed unfortunately. If you don't mind me asking, how much prior experience did you have before you obtained an actuarial role?
    I'm looking to sit some CT exams in April but I'm not yet sure which ones I should sit to be honest. Have you started revision yet?

    If you are looking to sit a CT in April sit ones that you have a higher chance of not redoing once the new syllabus comes in to place at the end of 2018 e.g. If you take CT4 in April you'd have to make sure you take CT6 at the same time or in the next sitting so you wouldn't have to redo them in the new syllabus (provided you pass both)

    I have two Graduate offers from some big firms and I will start work in September 2018 with anything from 3 to 6 exemptions from the CT exams as things currently stand. Is there anything I need to learn before I start?

    Did you get a Grad role straight out of Uni? Do you mind sharing where you work in here or by PM?
