“I chose Maths because it was a subject I really enjoyed at GCSE. This enjoyment has continued into A Level. Whilst I find it challenging, I love the problem solving aspect and the idea of using multiple solutions to solve one problem. In A Level Maths there are three parts: Pure Maths, Mechanics and Statistics. Statistics has been my favourite component as it showed me new ways of collecting and analysing data. In addition, this aspect of A Level Maths fits in with my other subjects, Biology and Psychology. Mechanics is useful for people who are interested in engineering and physics – it is interesting to see how equations work in real life. Pure Maths is the algebra aspect of Maths, where most of the problem solving is. I am so pleased I chose Maths because it is a subject which will help me in my future.”
