Locked in for the 7th.

I've only seen mornings in the appointment selection. Works for me anyways as I'm always sleepy as **** on afternoons.

Same, I'm definitely a morning person. Good luck with the studying! I'm sure you'll smash 8 this time.

Found a test centre that still offers 7, though it's 202km away from home. Maybe I'll book a hotel near the test centre the day before, but I'm not even sure if hotel still opens during covid lol

how would you use a copula to make your risk margin instead of the simple linear correlation dependency structure in Marshall? I'm guessing simulation after fitting copulas?

Hey All,

Question about Overall MSE vs. Sum of individual AYs in Mack 94.

Is there anyone in here to recommend learning the formula for overall MSE? Or just understanding that it will be greater than the sum of MSE of individual AYS is enough?

Verrall,

Incorporating expert opinion: development factors are based on a 5-year weighted average


λijj, λij is among the last 5 diagonals

λijj*, λij is not among the last 5 diagonals

What is λj*? Does it mean if an age-to-age factor is not in the last 5 diagonals, use the standard chain ladder factor based on all data excluding the last 5 diagonals? so confused
