If you were actually interested, you'd ask the various societies, since none of your questions are person-specific, and all the actuarial societies give out this information freely. In fact, you could have had these figures already with a little (metaphorical) legwork in less time it's taken to get these replies.

So clearly you're not interested in the information.

Here in the UK the only tuition you can get is to attend tutorials run by Acted. They are typically 3 days per subject. In this they go through key parts of the subject to prepare you for the exam. They also hold extra revision days.

What... only 5 exams to be a qualified actuary in the US? Are you then considered qualified in the UK?
