Unfortunately, I don't know what ST series exams are.  However, I do believe that it is always good to pass as many exams as possible before you take a job.  I had passed 4 of the 9 actuarial exams in the US at the end of my third year in university.  I was fully qualified after my second year on the job at age 24.  That gave me a huge head start in my career.  I have heard people say that passing too many exams is not good because it makes you more expensive.  I disagree.  I believe moving through the exams rapidly demonstrates a strong ability and a strong desire to be an actuary.
