Mathematics Majors Pass Actuarial Exams

Belmont mathematics students saw great success on the passing of their professional actuarial exams this summer. Mallory White, senior mathematics major, passed the Actuarial Exam FM/2 on her first try in June. Elly Fell, junior mathematics major, passed the Actuarial Exam P/1 on her first try in July. Both exams have a pass rate of less than 50 percent. There is a series of nine exams required for full status as an actuary.

Actuaries work in the insurance and financial sectors and specialize in analyzing the financial impact of risk and uncertainty. Belmont University’s Belmont Actuarial Students Society, led by Mathematics Professor Dr. Daniel Biles, is an organization for students interested in pursuing the actuarial sciences.
