thanks man. It seems majoring in stats will automatically fulfil the module requirements for qf?
the 4 module required will also fulfill the graduating requirement of stats... you jus have to make sure u complete that particular 4 module within the first 2 semester.

Paging for Frankiefool~

Anyway, year 1 going year 2 stats student here (assuming my application to certain major fail). not tht sure about job prospect, i opted for statistics cos i wan to be an actuarial (and NTU dun wan me) so i did not really research into other fields. but i think i read somwhere tht u can be an auditor. You can also venture into the banking and finance sector, but from wat i heard from frankiefool, it is not easy to get an internship there as they onli pick the best.

difficulty wise, it really depends on individual. if u are aiming for first class, hard work is definitely needed, as so far for me, all the core mod (mainly math for first year) have very stiff competition as nearly half of the students in the mod are PRC and their math is really zai.

and for university life and culture, it is somehow link to the previous point... unless u r really talented in math or ur hobby is reading math tht are way beyond A'lvl (i know atleast one guy who is like tht), a fulfilling university life and excellent grade generally does not co-exists
Hi!

Was wondering if you know if someone does Acturial Science, besides being an Actuary, what other sorts of career can he persue?

Sigh I feel damn sad coz me myself also FT(non-scholar) but I've been studying in SG since sec 1.
I feel pretty much like a average Singaporean here but it's saddening to know there are smarter FTs in the course.

Entry to QF is merit-based, even though the qualifying requirement is 3.50. But to be honest, I hardly see people entering QF with CAP below 4.5.

Which means to say, if your CAP is below 4.5 and you manage to get into QF, probably you'll have a high passion and that the interviewers are impressed enough.

... and don't worry much about the interviews, that's the tip from me. As long as you've the interest in the Finance industry, it'll show.
