Mathematics is one of the most marketable A Levels in terms of acceptability, in particular courses/careers in Mathematics, Engineering and most areas of Physics (Further Mathematics may be required for some of these courses). Also Computing, Accountancy, Economics, Business, Banking, Air Traffic Control, Retail Management, Architecture, Surveying, Cartography, Psychology and Teaching, to name but a few. Mathematics A Level is very well regarded by both employers and Higher Education institutions. Research has shown that studying Mathematics at A Level can increase your lifetime earnings by 10%, on average.
