    career prospect in Actuarial Science

    I am right now studying in FYBSC and have subjects like maths, computer science, chemistry and physics. I am planning to pursue the Actuarial Science but I dont know whether I am supposed to do BSC in Actuarial Science or BSC with Actuarial Science as a subject or else will it be fine to just pursue the BSC.IT and then go for the Actuarial Science papers at the same time. Can anyone tell me how much time will it take to clear all the papers? Also, will this career option financially good compared to a degree in Engineering and MBA? What all institutes offer this Actuarial Science and how to apply for the Entrance Exam and all? Thanks

    There are many good institutions that a candidate can pursue this course and some of the best ones are Institute of Certified Risk and Insurance Managers, University of Delhi, Actuarial Institute of India, etc. Actuarial Science is one of the rarest course in India and it is also in high demand. You will need to maintain a good percentage of 65% and above throughout all the academics and then only you will have a good chance of getting a job for sure.
