    Yes. Though its usefulness depends what you are applying for and where.

    An offer for medicine would be based on achieving results in three full A levels. A core maths qualification will not be enough to count as the third A level so while your maths skills would be enhanced it wouldn't really impact on whether you are made an offer or accepted.

    While its a good subject to take you don't need maths for a medicine application in the UK though I have heard it is favoured in other countries. You will need a third respected A level as well as your Chem and Bio. Physics and maths are common options as are history and English literature.

    A high proportion of successful applicants will probably have a more traditional academic third A level but I have heard of lots of people who get offers with psychology if all other aspects of their application are strong.
