    How about new Fellow a year?(on average)

    http://www.soa.org/education/exams/e...ts-detail.aspx

    In the first 6 months in 2007,

    1138 students pass Exam P.
    660 new associate fellow.
    314 new fellow.

    So, Is it correct if I estimated that in a year:
    2276 students pass Exam P.
    1320 new associate fellow.
    628 new fellow.

    That is one estimate. How comfortable would you be basing a long-term trend on a point estimate though?

    I remember back in October when the Sabres (NHL) had a 10-0-0 record. Some fans on the team's website were already dreaming of a 82-0-0 season! :laugh:

    A lot of people stop when they realize they can't pass the third or fourth exam. A lot of people stop at associateship.

    "A lot of people stop at associateship."
    They failed the last examinations?
    Or they work in other field after it?

    As in they don't think the time and effort spent to get to fellowship is worth the additional value.

    Is there really great difference between associate and fellow?

    In terms of number of exams passed, there is much less difference now than there used to be.

    In terms of pay scale, recognition, voting privileges, possibility for advancement, fellowship is much more valuable than associateship.

    I know lots of people who were perfectly happy and successful career associates. There is nothing wrong with that and there is a place for that kind of actuary. However that was not their initial career goal. They all started out wanting to be fellows but for whatever reason stopped after associateship.
