    Pretty much everything. From what I've gathered, those A levels are the most facilitating.

    Have you considered Computer Science?

    I'm considering doing a maths degree and selecting modules with computer science or physics but I'm not sure if I will like computer science

    That depends on the degree you do, and your experience.

    Maths is very flexible, so you would be able to apply to jobs from technology and finance sector, and some other odd ones. You do not need to worry about what jobs you want to have a this moment of your life (most Maths student do not know what to do with their degree, hence, they explore all possible options; from career fairs and even work exp).

    I really don't like the electrical part of physics at the moment

    Thanks for the info, so you could go into engineering having taken physics related modules in a maths degree?

    Depends on what kind of engineering jobs, but the most practical ones will be extremely difficult without any proof of practical experience. Well you could always go on and do an Msc in engineering.

    Yep I was thinking of doing a masters in course with applied maths 👍

    Electrical Engineering isn't just about A-level circuits, people are so put off by that and think it's what defines it, but it really doesn't.

    You learn about waves, how they travel, space travel, maxwells equations, signals and systems, audio processing, a lot of coding (more coding than any other course apart from CS), vector calculus

    Artificial intelligence. The course overall is very mathematical as well, compared to other fields of engineering

    That does sound interesting I'll look into it more

    As long as you have a degree you can get any job you want (within reason). Most universities won't accept Further Maths because it is the same as just Maths and they count it as one A Level, unless you want to study maths then Further Maths is essential.

    Lol biggest amount of bs I've ever heard, ALL universities count further maths as a separate Alevel, and it is also rated toughest Alevel in the U.K.

    This is completely incorrect. There are a few courses(mostly medicine I think) at a few universities that don't accept it.

    While the last part of your post is technically incorrect, I do agree with the spirit of it. If you want to do a maths degree then you should definitely study further maths.
