SOA の Exam MLC がはるかに難しくなっていた(ことに気付いた)

昨日,Exam MFE(Models for Financial Economics)を受験・合格して,次の狙いをMLC(Models for Life Contingencies)にしようかC(Construction and Evaluation of Actuarial Models)にしようか考えていろいろ探っていたところ,こんな事実を知ってしまった.


A new version of Exam MLC is launched in Spring 2014. The new Exam MLC is significantly different from the old one, most notably in the following aspects:
  • (1) Written-answer questions are introduced and form a major part of the examination.
  • (3) The level of cognitive skills demanded from candidates is much higher. In particular, the new learning objectives require candidates to not only calculate numerical values but also, for example, interpret the results they obtain.
  • (4) Several new (and more advanced) topics, such as participating insurance, are added to the syllabus.

ってな感じで,2014年春試験からシラバスが変わったこと自体知らなかったけど,筆記の回答が必要となったり,テキストブックがACTEXのものからCambridge University Pressのものに変わったり,ちょっと1か月半では対応できそうにないな……。去年のうちに受かっておくべきだった.

ということで,6月のExam Cに狙いを定めます.その前に証券アナリスト2次があるけど.
