It's going to be a combination of both. It would be nearly impossible to get an A in MAT137 just by trying hard..Is Mat137/157 one of those maths where you have to be naturally smart in order to excel (by excel, I'm talking getting an A)? Or is it possible to study really really hard and do very good
There is no correlation between high school math mark and university math mark. You will see mathematical proofs for the first time, and that will decide your university mark. 80+ in high school calculus should be enough to get you started though.Also, if you guys don't mind me asking, what kinds of marks did you guys get in HS math (70s, 80s, 90s)? The reason I ask is so that I compare and see if I am suitable for math at the Uni level before I waste my time. (I got an 86 in HS Calculus, but I plan on spending a lot more hours at Math in Uni)

So basically by the time I have graduated the four year program, I should have Exam P, Exam FM, Exam MFE, Exam MLC, Exam C finished?DNM wrote: ↑Aug 8th, 2010 3:37 pmThe actuarial science program at UofT is great academically however with regards to summer internships and job placements after graduation they are lacking significantly in comparison to Waterloo Co-op. By the end of the second year you will be prepared to write Exam P and Exam FM and will also covered roughly 1/3 of the syllabus for Exam MLC. However a great deal of self study will be necessary as the actuarial exams are not easy. In 3rd year you will cover another third of the Exam MLC syllabus and most of the Exam MFE syllabus. In 4th year you will finish the MLC and MFE syllabus as well as cover the Exam C syllabus. The majority of the VEE credits you need will be obtained in 3rd year and you will need to obtain 70%+ in the course to have them validated by the SOA.

That is correct. It is a lot easier said then done. You'll end up spending atleast 100-200 hours per exam and probably even more for MLC, MFE and C. The courses will teach you the majority of the material however there will still be parts that are brushed over which can and probably will show up on the SOA exams that you will you need to study on your own.yeayaknow wrote: ↑Aug 9th, 2010 10:37 amThanks DNM and jhan for the replies!

And then after this I can choose which route I want to go into, (SOA or CAS) and take more exams to get to my associate level in either of these organizations?

As long as you do it in time it should be fine. MAT133 is a joke compared to the other MAT classes. It was a full year course and we didn't start learning new non-High School concepts until February, and that was just Integration.yeayaknow wrote: ↑Aug 11th, 2010 10:59 amThese courses sound hard. Let's see, I want a high GPA yet, I also want to keep my options open for the upper years...
How hard is it to change courses once the school year begins? I want to try MAT 137 and if I isn't for me, then I may want to switch to business math.
