Future opportunities

Mathematics is amongst the most fascinating of all intellectual disciplines. It is effective in solving a wide range of real life problems as well as being a subject worthy of study in its own right.

You will need to learn Mathematics beyond GCSE in a wide variety of degree courses. A level Mathematics is usually a requirement for degree courses in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Studies, Architecture and most forms of Engineering. For many others, like Biology, Biochemistry, Medicine, Psychology, Economics, Accountancy, Business and Management a knowledge of A level Mathematics is extremely helpful.
