Mathematics has practical applications in many fields and can be found employed, in some form or another, in most walks of life. The study of Mathematics encourages creative and problem solving skills as well as discipline, logic and rigorous thought processes.
For this reason it is one of the most desirable A Level qualifications, allowing entry to a wide range of degrees and careers. For more information on the potential of Mathematics, please take a look at www.mathscareers.org.uk.
There are plenty of good reasons to study Mathematics but one of the most important is that you enjoy it. In addition to supporting the Sciences, many past students have studied Mathematics alongside the Humanities, Arts and Languages for the pleasure and variety it gives them.
