he passed


So proud of my boy! Tyler passed his first Actuarial Exam!!

He has been busy preparing and studying for this very difficult test for the past 8 months and all of his hard work paid off! The pass rate is about 30-40%... and he did it on his first attempt! So proud!
Pete and I met him for a celebratory lunch after his 3 hour long test and I can't remember the last time I have seem him that happy and excited. :)

And because most people don't seem to know what an actuary is; here is a quick explanation:

An actuary is a business professional who deals with the financial impact of risk and uncertainty.     Actuaries provide assessments of financial security systems, with a focus on their complexity, their   mathematics, and their mechanisms.

Actuaries mathematically evaluate the probability of events and quantify the contingent outcomes in order to minimize the impacts of financial losses associated with uncertain events.

Now Tyler is looking forward to graduation (with a degree in mathematics) in about a month 
and to find employment. :)
