Additional Requirements

Students must maintain a Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of at least 3.50 in order to remain enrolled in the Bachelor of Social Sciences (Honours in Actuarial Studies and Economics). Students who do not maintain a CAP of at least 3.50 will be transferred to the Bachelor of Actuarial Studies.Further information on the calculation of the CAP can be found at http://www.nus.edu.sg/registrar/education-at-nus/modular-system.html. For the purpose of calculating the CAP at any point during the degree, the average mark in ANU courses is converted to a Grade Point in the NUS system by the following formula:Grade Point (subject to a maximum of 5) = (Average ANU course mark + 10) / 20The CAP at any time is calculated as the average of the ANU CAP and the NUS CAP, weighted by the number of semesters completed at each institution.For the purpose of calculating the CAP at the completion of the degree, the same approach as above is used, with ACST4031 - Actuarial Control Cycle 1 , ACST4032 - Actuarial Control Cycle 2 , ACST4062 - Actuarial Data Analysis and the highest mark in a STAT 3000-level course counting double towards the ANU CAP.
