Grade 6 in GCSE Maths - however, there is strong evidence that students are more likely to be successful with a grade 7 or above.
Maths is a subject with many applications as well as providing a basis for further study in its own right. It will be a requirement for a variety of university courses, ranging from sciences and engineering to economics and aspects of computing. It will also be an advantage for many other university courses which have components of Maths or Statistics within them, for example Geography, Psychology, Sociology, Architecture and Design Technology. Research shows that those workers with qualifications in Maths earn more than those without. With increasing use of data analysis in many fields of work the opportunities for mathematically competent and confident employees will grow.
