Since everyone has to study maths at GCSE it is worth remembering that a Grade 5 or above is crucial to progressing towards a maths related career. 

At A level there are a number of different options available from core maths, pure maths, further maths and statistics, and there are a shortage of people going into jobs that use lots of maths!

You can gain a variety of different skills from maths including problem solving, data analysis, attention to detail and communication skills. 

Maths also underpins other subjects like science, computer science and economics. It is also one of the 'facilitating subjects', which is particularly important if you are thinking of applying to university.

Maths is probably the most useful of all the subjects, as it really does keep your career options wide open.
