Questions related to ACET
Should I pursue BA Eco or BA Eco Honours from DU if i want to pursue acturial science along with it? (I am a PCM student without economics in +2)
Actuarial science is a difficult course and would need all your focus and attention. However, if you want to pursue a degree in economics you can go for any of the two.
There's is not much difference between BA economics and BA economics honours , except the later has a more in depth curriculum.
So you can choose the degree that suits you best!
I hope that cleared your doubt.
I have given my ACET EXAM on 10 October and the result is still awaited. But Im confused as to whether to pursue this course or not? I dont know if I can do that or not? Does it requires lot of travelling?
ACET is Actuarial Common Entrance Test which is conducted by IAI. If you want to enroll as student members of IAI so you can go for this.
After cleaning ACET you have to clear 15papers prescribed by IAI to be awarded by FIAI. It could take 4 to 6 years to clear all 15 papers.
It's a very good department but choice is totally yours.
If you want then go for it and if you not then decision is your.
All the best.
