You'll usually need a maths or maths-related degree to do a maths PGCE, so you need to check out maths uni courses and what A levels they want. Maths will be an obvious requirement, maybe some of the top unis will require further maths or STEP etc. But as long as you have maths A level you can do schemes like Teach First and become a maths teacher, so if you can find a uni that only wants maths A level for example then in theory you are free to choose whatever other A levels you like

Well if you want to be a maths teacher.... Maths is a good start lol. It doesn't really matter what degree you choose if you want to teach GCSE level though, well at least it didn't, one of mine did like politics or history or some ****.
If you want to do A-Level maths then you will need to do a degree that's got a bit of maths in it (it doesn't have to be maths, in fact not many teachers have a maths degree).
