"If you need to take Maths beyond GCSE but would like a user-friendly course which gives you the Maths you actually need to support your other studies at Paston and beyond, Mathematical Studies is for you. The course concentrates on the practical application of Maths - numbers, calculation and statistics, making full use of IT. "

Universities prefer students not to take it as they like to teach Politics from scratch; more suitable choices are English Literature and History.

I'm not criticising anyone's choices. The only people that will be criticising them are the university.

Actually a moderator edited my thread. Clearly they don't understand that they thread wasn't trying to be derogatory in any way.
