Mathematics at Advanced Level is a very sought after qualification and is in fact an essential requirement for many university courses. It demonstrates that you have the ability to think logically, are numerate and can solve problems analytically. Possible careers include those in Engineering, Medicine, Actuarial Science, Financial and IT related professions.


Mathematics is itself a highly regarded subject but also supports the learning in several other subjects, notably the Sciences, Economics, Psychology and Geography. Some universities prefer candidates to have studied Further Mathematics so you should consider this carefully as an option if you are thinking of studying Mathematics, Engineering or Economics at tertiary level.
