Angry Are you against University Accreditation Programs?

Apparently people from Canada or UK can get ASA without writing exams?!

I think the prelims are badly designed, but I am 100% against these waiver programs, what do you think?

It's fine. I don't do actuarial work anyway, so, might as well open the floodgates and see where 'actuaries' can find work.

Default Important Clarification, well... I think at least

You can't get ASA or FSA via the UAP. You can only get ACIA and FCIA, the Canadian "equivalent" (which may or may not translate into ACAS and FCAS through mutual recognition, idk/idc)
