    Hey, new to this. I was wondering if I could have any advice on future plans that I should consider. I am a bright girl predicted the highest grades but I really don’t know what I’m going to do with them. How can I utilise my grades to have a good career? I want to be a productive citizen and believe I would be of use to many companies. My strong subjects are of the following: art, music, English and maths.
    Any advice would be appreciated
    Many thanks

    Just go with wherever your education takes you, if you take all these subjects at a level then ask those teachers for specific advise.

    Have you thought about a career as an actuary?

    What is an actuary?
    Actuaries are highly regarded professionals; actuaries are problem solvers and strategic thinkers with a deep understanding of financial systems

    Being an actuary means having highly valued mathematical skills and expertise
    Actuaries come from different academic backgrounds but share a love of maths even if they haven’t done a maths degree. When you train as an actuary you’ll learn how to analyse data, evaluate financial risks, and communicate this data to non-specialists.

    Actuaries use their skills to help measure the probability and risk of future events
    Every area of business is subject to risks so an actuarial career offers many employment options, including banking, insurance, healthcare, pensions, investment but also non-financial areas.

    An actuarial career can be one of the most diverse, exciting and rewarding in the world
    Members of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) are part of a globally recognised profession and have internationally-recognised qualifications.
