Mathematics ALevel challenges and enhances student’s intellect. Mathematics is an important subject to study as it proves to future employers that the individual is able to deal with many different types of calculations and figures. The course will teach students to think logically and gives students many transferable skills; these will prepare the students for further studying at university. Studying mathematics can also help students with other A Level courses such as Physics, Chemistry, Business Studies, Geography, and Economics. Mathematics links well with these subjects as they all require mathematical calculations to be carried out.
