I feel so guilty for having made so many thread for selfish reasons so I will make this as quick and concise as possible and thank you for an answer.
Over the holidays I plan to bolster my personal statement by getting work experience so I can get into LSE for actuarial science. I've even written on my CV that I'm prepared to work for free just to gain work experience over the holidays. I've applied to several banks and only 2 have replied in the last 2 weeks, both declining. Now, considering I'm not exactly qualified for anything with only my GCSEs, is it likely ANY of the 15 or so i've applied to will accept me for any sort of work experience? If not, how am I possibley meant to get work experience if I can't even get a job working at something at least half-related to actuarial work for FREE?
As an aside, does anybody know any decent books that it's reasonible for a 17 year old to read about actuarial science over the summer holidays.
Thanks a lot.
And actually passed?
