It is a particularly useful qualification for those who intend to follow a Maths based degree subject at university. In each of the AS & A Level years, students take one Further Pure Maths unit and two applied units (from Statistics, Mechanics or Discrete) of their choice. Students who decide to continue their study of Maths at university will be given the opportunity to study an extra Pure Maths unit in Year 13 to help their application.

For many careers, particularly in the fields of science and engineering an A Level in Mathematics is essential. It is also considered very advantageous in careers such as medicine dentistry, finance and insurance.
