working as an actuary
I'll bet the average actuary earns more than the average engineer but its not really a straightforward comparison. Becoming an actuary involves years of very tough exams - a large proportion will never pass them. Its very hard to get in - most trainees with have top degrees in maths/ physics/ engineering type courses.


Where would you be looking to go to university and for what course if considering the actuarial route? Will you get the sort of A level grades necessary to be competitive?
