Career Pathways

There are a shortage of people going into jobs that use lots of maths!

A level Mathematics is a requirement for certain degree courses, such as Accounting, Computing, Product Design, Engineering, Physics, Statistics, and often Economics. Although not a requirement, A level Mathematics is a typical subject taken by students on courses as wide ranging as Architecture, Law and Psychology.

You can watch a great series of videos of young people who are working in jobs that use Maths on the BBC Bitesize website.
