You spend every weekend and evening studying for that actuarial exam, but when you come to sit it, you find that the paper is impossible. Questions are either ambiguously worded, or you are asked to prove statements that are unambiguously false.
There must be a typo somewhere. Now for part ii. It was added after I wrote to them. The less able candidate, and apparently the examiners, could easily overlook the fact that pairwise independence does not imply the full independence whose proof is requested in the original question. This leads to four possible interpretations table 1. In that case, a full solution involves a laborious examination of five special cases, of which the marking schedule only gives credit for one.
The next question Discouraged by question 3, many candidates went straight on to question 4. Question 4 is a multiple decrement question. What is the appropriate professional response to this?
Some colleagues justify a capricious examination process by the argument that the exams may be unpleasant and degrading but they had to sit them and learn to smile, therefore so should I. A second possibility is to disengage from the system. The Institute, at least, allows students to keep their student status indefinitely. Why lose sleep now for the sake of an exam system that is obviously in chaos? Despite their current state of denial, in five years, the examiners must surely get their act together or the entire system will be outsourced to more competent hands.
Either of these is more attractive than what we have today. This has been my personal strategy. A third route is to make greater use of the exemption system. Many universities offer good courses in stochastic processes. Experts in the subject set and mark the examinations, which are also moderated externally. Furthermore, a pass in some of these examinations can result in an exemption from CT4, so you can take a step towards qualification while learning something useful.
