Mathematics at YARM SCHOOL

Course description

In addition to being an interesting discipline in its own right, A level Maths is helpful, and sometimes essential, to those studying the sciences. It is also useful for those doing Economics and Geography. Careers for which Maths is a desirable A level are numerous, and include engineering, medicine, surveying, computing, accountancy, economics, business, banking, retail management, architecture, surveying and psychology to name but a few. If you want to go on to study at University then A level Maths will open more doors than any other subject. This is probably the most marketable A level in terms of acceptability. It is not just the content of the course but the skills that A level Maths allows you to develop that are advantageous and sought-after; these include problem solving, logic and analysing situations. Add in the improvements to your basic numeracy skills and that bit of creativity needed to solve maths problems and you’ve got yourself a set of skills which would make you more desirable for almost any job!

Entry requirements

A good natural ability in Mathematics is essential before embarking on an A-level course.
