Mathematics - A Level at Turton High School & Sixth Form College
Mathematics A-level will develop your skills in problem solving, logic and analysing situations, as well as provide you with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. These are highly valued in almost every profession which is why a good grade in Mathematics can boost an application for pretty much every course or job. It is also why people with Mathematics A-Level tend to earn more on average than people without it. In addition, there is the excitement of new discoveries you will make. You will see more of the beauty of Mathematics and realise just how much everything in the universe is connected to it.
