The course has been developed under the supervision of employers and universities in order to contain the mathematics that they consider most relevant.

This course is ideal for anyone who is either taking an A-Level or considering a career in areas which use mathematics, such as Economics, Business Studies, Computer Science, Biology or Psychology.

Although it is a new qualification,  universities and employers have already commented favourably on the idea of continued mathematics study, and therefore an additional AS qualification will look very good on any job/university applications.

The subject is studied alongside other BTEC or A Level subjects.
