Future opportunities

An A-level in Mathematics is very valuable as a supporting subject to many courses at Advanced GCE and degree level. There are also many areas of employment that see a Mathematics A-level as an important qualification and it is often a requirement for the vocational qualifications related to these areas. Higher Education courses or careers that either require A-level Mathematics or are strongly related include Economics, Medicine, Architecture, Engineering, Accountancy, Teaching, Psychology, Physics, Computing and Information and Communication Technology.

Many employers still look for a traditional Mathematics A-level qualification because they show an aptitude to succeed and encompass challenge. Core Mathematics skills learned at A-level - such as logical thinking, problem solving and statistical analysis are always desirable in the workplace.
