Jane Curtis congratulates actuarial students on exam success

April 2011 saw 11,589 examination entries for the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries'  examinations. The exams took place in a total of 138 examination centres worldwide, and 4791 entries took place outside the UK.

Jane Curtis said: "My congratulations to all of those who passed, especially to the 208 candidates who will now become Fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. I was particularly pleased to see that our course in Financial Mathematics for Non-Actuaries, designed to give those who aren't members of the Profession a taste of actuarial studies, continues to be so popular. I would hope that those who passed this course now give serious thought to further actuarial studies.

"I would also like to congratulate the 31 candidates who passed the enterprise risk management course and who are now Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuaries. The growing group of CERA qualified actuaries are leading the way in making this qualification a mark of excellence in the developing field of enterprise risk management.

"Finally, I would like to pay a special tribute to the candidates who sat exams in Christchurch and Tokyo. Despite the terrible tragedies both these cities have recently seen, our candidates still presented themselves to take their examinations. Whether they passed or failed, they are a credit to our profession."
