Before the start of his junior year at Marietta, Austin McCleary ’23 had already passed his first Society of Actuaries Exam and was interning as a data analyst at an insurance company. “My first exam was Exam P, so taking Calculus 3, Statistics, and Probability is crucial to passing the exam. As a bonus, however, Marietta College offers an exam prep class that really helps actuarial science students specifically prepare for Exam P, which helped me refine my math skills and speed in solving problems. This, along with an online program called Coaching Actuaries, helped me pass the incredibly difficult exam.”
I started researching jobs for math nerds and Actuaries topped nearly every list, and for good reason. I would strongly recommend looking into actuarial science for any high schooler who has a deep interest in mathematics.
