    Hardly. Maths is very employable. That phrase "transferable skills" springs to mind, and for the case of maths, you get analytical, problem-solving, and loical thinking skills.
    So you are saying that if he wanted to be a geography teacher, he could get away with out doing geography and only maths a level?

    I was responding to what I thought your post implied: that graduates from those subjects just end up teaching those subjects.

    Geography utilises the same skills but in a very different way.

    I maintain that Geography is the most 'relevant to life' subject that you can study.

    Every subject is very relevant to life. "Most" and least is relative and up for debate.

    Depends in what circumstances you are in. If I wanted to kill somebody, a rock would be 1000 times more useful!

    It depends what you want to do. ie being a geograpphy teacher? Or being a maths teacher? Extreme examples of either, but it stems to that. Your career choice.
    alot of computing companies employ maths graduates.

    Critical thinking, a skill employed by critics. They fill columns on newspapers, for example.
