    You seem to be really smart!!!
    You're mistaken. What subjects do you study ?

    And thank you for raising such a good issue about Maths&Career Opportunities

    Yeah I really enjoy maths and I'm sure it will challenge me a lot if I go on and do further study. Can anyone help us out with the careers in maths ? I have found some interesting ones such as statistician and analyst. How hard is it to get a job with a maths degree?

    Honestly, for me a person whose doing Maths, Further Maths and Physics is considered to be smart cuz I know how challenging these subjects are.----I'm going to do Economics related subjects: Applied Economics,Finances,Business Maths and Business----To tell the truth, I am more Economics oriented person, so, unfortunately, I would not be able to give a good advice about career opportunities in maths area. but I am using the prospects.ac.uk for further details about any careers or degrees and where they are relevant

    I agree - physics at AS doesnt seem difficult to learn. Same goes for maths. C1 i think is a little too easy but if they are giving me free marks i might aswell take them right ? I found FP1 a little challenging but right now after doing past papers it feels like im more in control

    Lucky man, those subjects do not work for everyone. At least, for most of my ex classmates

    maths is buff cos its either right or wrong, and you dont have to write a 4 page essay explaining why, just a few calculations.

    and most of the time you know if you got it right, it isnt like english where you have no idea whether you ballsed it up or aced it

    I guess you are not interested in Maths? unfortunately.----Some people prefer to be challenged by an outstanding equation which would cause your brain to explode

    Started to love Maths after my AS exams last yr (I used to despise it) Watched 'A Beautiful Mind', started reading more about matrices and linear algebra. Then I just got hooked
