A Level Mathematics is very valuable as a supporting subject to many courses at A Level and degree level, especially in the sciences, geography, psychology, sociology and medical courses. A Level Mathematics is a much sought-after qualification for entry to a wide variety of courses in higher education.   Building on GCSE mathematics, the course introduces new ideas and serves as a very useful support for many other qualifications as well as being a sought-after qualification for the work place and courses in higher education.
