Shubhanjali Gupta, fellow Actuary, says I googled ‘Actuarial Science’ and was rewarded with a number of hits, one of the top ones being www.actuaries.org.uk. And so it began! I read about the profession, the testimonials, the routes to qualifying and I was hooked. I looked into the papers I was supposed to take and read through the syllabus. Post this I made a list of what papers I already knew bits of. Being a Statistics student my first choice was to go with CT-3. In addition I decided to take CT1 and CT6. This was my first attempt and the beginning of my journey towards FIA.
