Basically anything that doesn't require a specific degree.

So that's banking, software engineering, management consultancy, marketing and a bunch of other things - maths is one of the most employable degrees around.
anyone know any sort of maths erlated wotrk i can do with an A-level in maths?...looking for summer job, but no one wants me! they all want grad mathnmos..even for a traineeship! smart grads go into the highly paid jobs not some 11k p.a. ****!

You will have the chance to explore different fields while at uni. Contact your career advise office and ask about placements and where you could get valuable work experience.
Summer holidays are also good for jobs and experience. If you really want to, you can go abroad on a placement.

I know people who have gone into primary teaching with a business degree, so the world is wide open for you.

I wanted to do Business Admin and Maths prior my A-Level Results but i got BCC and needed BBC at Aston. I am now doing Maths and Public Policy and Management so it is possoble for me to enter Accountancy, basically the business sector, i have showed my interest with an A-Level in Business.

Also, how common is getting a First Honours Degree? I know it's not but roughly how many people get it?

im 18 currently studying HNC in Mechatronics(in college not uni)....the work is maths orientated and boring as hell. Testing and Analysing circuits blah blah *yawn*. I should/could be in Uni doing the course but i tried for an apprenticeship last year and failed on getting one therefore was pushed into going for the HNC.

the time has come once again to find an apprenticeship my only problem is i don't know if i want one! Engineering is getting boring and dull, not sure if i wanna make a career out of it! so i tried to look into Unversity courses in Computer Science ect. but oh dear looks like its too late to apply for any placements! any advice on how to find out if Engineering is for me! im getting sod all help from the careers advisors and all the local companies seem to turn heads when i ask for possible work experience.

im no longer motivated to work as im so unsure if engineering is the thing for me! and now i've missed the Application period for Universities!?

Nomatter what you study, the careers prospects afterwards are going to be heavily dependent on your degree level(i.e 1.1,2.1...)

i suppose this is different for sciences, where specific knowledge may be required for later.

i just want to know what happened to the days when people had to study Classics before anything?

It's the shiz people!

It is amazing how many people do not realise that most recruiters do not care what our degree is in, mainly just that you have one and what grade it is.

Obviously certain recruiters require certain degrees, science, engineering being the main two but most Law firms will take someone from any degree for example. (they just have to do an extra years study to convert)

Very few websites will actually show you which recruiters will take you with the degree you have studied accurately.

Is a joint course such as 'Physics and Philosophy' going to make me 'more employable' in a wider range of fields? Simply because you have the sciency and arty side of things. So you'll be able to make sense of data, work with numbers, think about physical objects, but also analyse texts, refine ideas according, and alter projects after looking through them criticallty regarding the physical restraints and the logic / reasoning behind it.

Thanks in advance

I think that's the point, however the content will more dilute, compared to doing separate Physics and Philosophy degrees.
