Notes 
Students can replace 10, 11 or 12 with subjects to the value of one unit approved by their tutor, but this will affect exemptions from examinations set by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.  

LSE100 is taken by all students in the Lent Term of Year 1 and the Michaelmas Term of Year 2. The course is compulsory but does not affect the final degree classification. 
This programme is externally accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Further information is available on the Department of Statistics website.
