Studying

7 02 2010

So since we last spoke…

I passed my Commercial Actuarial Practice exam, the big eight-hour monster. Now I am qualified to become a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries Australia, which will happen on 23 February after a two-day Professionalism Course.

Yay!

Having got the actuarial qualification out of the way, I have decided to pursue some further study.For the next 2 years I will be working part-time (3 days a week) and studying part-time at Moore Thoelogical College while I complete a Diploma of Bible and Missions.

Work has been very supportive of me doing this, which makes things easier, and I am very excited about getting stuck into God’s Word!

I have already started. I’m one week into the intensive Greek course and I am parsing and declining up a storm!

Exam

22 10 2009

Is this all I ever blog about?

My big exam is tomorrow, from 9am to 5pm.

Currently thinking about “business contextualisation” and “knowing the answer before you do the analysis”…

Really hoping and praying that this is the last exam!





Procrastination

17 10 2009

Funny that a post about procrastination can be procrastination in itself…

I am on study leave from work at the moment and with all the extra time on my hands, I have managed to:

  • Clean and re-organise the kitchen cupboards
  • Clean the manky grease out of the rangehood
  • Plant basil and tomatoes
  • Clean the balcony
  • Hang a picture on the wall
  • Pay all outstanding bills and complete about 3 months worth of filing and general organising
  • Look into mine and Adri’s superannuation and
  • Buy two presents for people (Dad and Tim)

Now, I should really do some study. It’s not that I haven’t done any yet, but it’s amazing how much more appealing household chores become when study is the alternative.

Time to hit some past case studies.





I failed…

24 06 2009

Unfortunately, I failed the 8-hour case study component of my exam.

I passed the 2-hour exam, but that was the easy part.

Will have to have another go next semester.

😦





Thursday Thought – exam results

18 06 2009

I think I am freaking out about exam results day next Wednesday.
I am waiting to hear back about the Commercial Actuarial Practise course (the one with the 8 hour exam).
If I pass; relief, happiness, certainty, no more actuarial exams.
If I fail: uncertainty, stress, at least 6 more months of study.
Would appreciate your prayers if you can spare em.





Exam tomorrow

5 05 2009

My final Commercial Actuarial Practice exam is tomorrow.

With any sort of luck this will be my last actuarial exam…

…ever.

That would be sweet!

Would appreciate some prayer if you are so inclined.





Thursday Thought – Exam

26 03 2009

I think this big exam tomorrow is going to be tough.
I think 8 hours of report writing is heinous.
I think I would appreciate your prayers!
Thanks!
