We hear that if you pass exams you will be overqualifies. What exactly is the situation? 9 exams or 6 exams? I'm unsure if to continue giving exams without having a job. I've cleared 6 exams

I think we all need to understand one thing i.e. papers & exp. goes hand in hand. As 10-15 years back "Actuary" was not a boom, so the Grads. students on that time did not clear much exams if you compared to the current scenario.

And the candidates heard the word "Overqualified" from the Recruiter/ HR is just to avoid parity issues in the organisation..  

Just to add companies have also faced such challenges, so they are very focused on the papers in the present scenario..

So sooner or later we won't hear "Overqualified" in terms of papers..

Hope this will help you..

I believe companies do try to not take candidates with too many exams to begin with
Even I've faced that
But I wonder why?
If given a chance & the interview goes well and the candidate is well versed with the exams, I think he should be given a chance to work
