    Hi,

    I'am starting an Msc Actuarial Science course at Cass in September and am wondering how difficult it is likely to be,

    Will it mostly be A-level maths, am I going to spend all my time studying and will I be surrounded by mathematically inclined students who despise stupidity,

    From what I've seen past students have been maths graduates from places like oxford, I did half a statistics undergrad degree from Middlesex and don't have an A-level in maths

    Any insight into what I can expect over the next 12 months would be greatly appreciated

    I have a few friends who studied for a BSc in Acturial Science at CASS, and they all came in with a Maths A grade at A-level. It is a requisite at undergraduate level, so I'm guessing the mathematical requirements would be similar for postgrad. That said, cass have accepted you on to the program with the expectation that you will be able to complete it, so they must have seen something in your academic profile to suggest your suitability for the course. I wouldn't worry too much.

    It might be worthwhile to contact the department and ask for a reading list - you can brush up on your maths during the summer break.

    Thanks for the reply, I know it was a niche subject so I didn't think that too many people would know anything about it
