probably around 80% of the kids at my sixth form do maths lmao. though we're a stem specialist sixth form so not entirely representative but regardless, maths is one of the most popular A-levels

At my college mainly Psychology lmao, but a lot of people also do English Literature (we have about 15 English teachers- it's actually insane)

Maths.
Around 600 per year take maths
Psychology is second where I am with around 250 taking it
Then I think it's sociology and the sciences with around 200 each

Nationally it's maths though :woo:
