Future opportunities

 For a degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Engineering or Actuarial Science, you will almost certainly have to have a good Mathematics A level and possibly a Further Mathematics A Level.

AS/A2 Mathematics is of considerable benefit if you are intending to study any of the Social Science or  Humanities subjects; in all these subjects you will be expected to analyse and interpret large data sets.

 If you are thinking of looking for a job straight after A levels, Mathematics is a great "core" subject - in fact, it is one of the most important subjects you can take; this is because the ability to understand and manipulate numbers and mathematical concepts is extremely useful for almost any job.
