    It depends what you are looking for (the highest starting salary or highest salary if you are promoted). If you're looking for a high starting salary, being an actuary is well paid (I've seen starting salaries of £50 000, but you do need to study for additional qualifications). However, I'd strongly advise that you look for a job which you will enjoy doing rather than just getting paid slightly higher.

    It depends on how good you are... In the city as a merchant banker, or a stokebroker, you could make a tonne. But if you enjoy teaching and such, you could earn a fair sum, and know you are helping others reach their potential. Great feeling.

    I hope this 'how much money' is the minority view. I'm doing a degree in Maths because I enjoy maths and want to pursure my interest. Not because I want to get a highly paid finance job at the end (actually, id rather eat **** than be one of those overpaid corporate-******s).

    Is it really going to be that high!? Teaching is starting to sound better and better...

    To get that high a salary you have to become an 'Advanced Skills Teacher' which you have to train further for, and usually involves you visiting a different school one every two weeks and imparting some of your teaching knowledge to other teachers. SO in theory you could ear £60000 but it will take you a while!

    Precisely. Do a job you'll enjoy. The money's nice, but you'll spend a large proportion of your life in whatever job you choose, so choose something you'll enjoy and not hate for 45 years.

    Good maths teachers in short supply... DEFINITELY. I experience some subpar teaching first hand and feel that there should be a given reason for my teachers to buck up their ideas. Im not sure its that much money though.
