    It does not. They say "many successful applicants have studied Maths to at least AS-level" but it definitely does not say that you need it.
    They say this but I'm sure something like over 80% of successful have done maths AS, I've seen the figures on their site somewhereI doubt it's a coincidence but you're right, they do say it isn't an absolute requirement although it's clear it's a strong preference that would give an advantage

    Can anybody tell me where OP said they want to be PM? I imagine the average MP either has no degree or only just has one insomuch that most will either not have one, or at least it will be irrelevant.

    Oxford and Cambridge obviously, then LSE. However, there's never been a UK PM from LSE.

    How many are careerists and have a degree because that's part of being a careerist, and how many got a degree as necessitated by their profession?

    A law degree will drive you inside politics more than a political science degree.
