Subject choices: Mathematics

If considering a degree in Mathematics itself, its excellence as an academic discipline should not be ignored; graduates in the subject are in high demand. The shortage of Mathematics graduates is now so marked that students who enjoy the subject and who have a reasonable degree of competence will find it considerably easier to get a university place in Mathematics than in some other subjects. This is not a route for everyone of course, and studying the subject at A Level will help develop analytical, research and problem solving skills. Not only can it provide the knowledge to tackle scientific, mechanical, coding and abstract problems, it will develop skills to help with planning projects, managing budgets and even debating effectively.

Mathematics is the most popular subject choice at The British School of Monaco , with well over half the Sixth Form opting to continue its study. These large numbers enable us to create six ‘single’ Mathematics classes, and we find that effective streaming of these classes enables us to alter approaches and provision accordingly.

What subjects does Mathematics combine with?

Mathematics combines well with all the sciences and social sciences. Equally, studying Mathematics alongside essay subjects such as English or History can help keep options open for a wider range of possible degrees and careers.
