I understand while in college it looks really bad to fail a course. With actuarial exams though, many actuaries did not pass every single requirement with one attempt. I myself passed 19 out of the 22 requirements on the first try. Others have batted 0.500 which means they fail an exam on the first attempt but pass on the second. Employers are also understanding of this and usually allow you pass each individual exam within 2-3 attempts. Check on this within their Actuarial Study Program. The important thing is that you do make progress and try to knock out a couple of requirements within a calendar year. Sign up for the Technical Skills Course so you will have the technical skills to get that entry level job and enter into an Actuarial Study Program.
