AS/A Level Maths

In your study of maths you develop skills in analysing and interpreting data, finding patterns and drawing conclusions. You’ll learn to approach problems in an analytical and rigorous way, formulating theories and applying them to solve problems. Maths in many ways establishes in you an ability to deal with abstract concepts.

Employers place a high value on these skills so there is significant demand for mathematicians and statisticians. Our mathematicians have pursued careers in the petroleum and nuclear industries, in medicine, and engineering. Mathematicians are also in high demand in well paid sectors such as pharmaceuticals, insurance, market research, banking and accountancy.
