Actuarial Science Major, Candace Goodson, Passes Exam P

Candace Goodson has passed the Society of Actuaries’ Probability exam (Exam P). The exam tests the candidate’s knowledge of the fundamental probability tools for quantitatively assessing risk. Exam P is one of the exams required to achieve professional status as an actuary. Candace has already passed Exam FM (Financial Mathematics) and plans on taking either Exam MFE (Models for Financial Economics) or MLC (Models for Life Contingencies) this fall.
Actuaries are professionals who provide expert advice and relevant solutions for business and societal problems that involve economic risk. The actuarial profession is consistently ranked as one of the top 5 careers in the United States.

Candace transferred to Ashland University last fall. She is a senior majoring in Actuarial Science with a minor in Political Science. She plans on graduating in the spring and securing an internship or entry-level actuarial position. Having passed two exams, Candace is well on her way to become a certified actuary.

Candace credits her AU Mathematics of Statistics class and Dr. Christopher Swanson for helping her succeed in passing the exam.
