Mathematics and Computer Science Students Exam on First Attempt

This summer, Belmont students Reid Huffman and Kurt Alexander passed the Actuarial Exam P/1 on their first try.  The pass rate for this test is around 30 to 40 percent, including those repeating it, so this is quite an accomplishment.  Reid and Kurt received year-long training and preparation from Math/CS department faculty members Barbara Ward and Danny Biles. Kurt graduated from Belmont in May 2011 with a BS in Mathematics.  Reid is a senior Honors student pursuing a double degree – a B.S. in Applied Discrete Mathematics, including the Actuarial Career Track, and a B.B.A. in Music Business.
