Lightbulb No students in Bermuda?

Guys

Is there anyone in Bermuda planning to sit for exams this fall? It's no good studying alone.

If you can't find someone else sitting for an actuarial exam, perhaps you can find someone who is sitting for a CFA exam or other professional exam. I know it isn't quite the same, but at least you won't be studying "alone"

There were a fair number of students writing exams at various levels this sitting. No, I don't know how to get in touch with them.

For CAS exams 5 & 6 in Bermuda, there's usually 6-10 people writing. At your first exam, you could probably find someone to study with. The actuarial group on the island, CABER, might have more ideas.

Contact Cathy Lapsley at the Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies (www.bfis.bm). She was helping students co-ordinate study groups and would be glad to put you together with others.

Contact info is on the website.
