    Potential math major thinking about becoming actuary

    Hi. I'm currently a college freshman and I'm planning doing a double major with math and psychology. I haven't taken math yet, but next year I'll be taking linear algebra and statistics.

    I might start studying for exam P during the summer and maybe try to take it if I can get 300 hours during the break. Any feedback?

    Anyway, I'd like to know more about being an actuary, as it sound like a good fit for me, as I value having a stable, predictable, somewhat routine job over instability and coming up with something at the spur of the moment.

    Thanks!

    The job of an actuary is anything but predictable and routine. It's not uncommon for us to have to "come up with something at the spur of the moment."
