...As an undergraduate I enrolled in junior level probability course for Mathematics majors and earned an A. I also passed the Society of Actuaries Probability examination with a score of 9 out of a possible 10 (6 is the minimum passing score, and only 45% of test takers pass). I am currently an Actuarial Science graduate student. So far I have passed Exams P and FM.
