Hi, I hope whoever is reading this is well and would help me as much as they can.

I wanted to ask the following questions, please answer all the questions that you can answer:

1. To study maths degree, what are the entry requirements? which A level/btec are compulsory to study to do this degree?

2. By taking maths A level, is it possible to study maths degree?

3. what do you study in maths degree? - whoever have studied this degree, can you please let me know if you enjoyed it and what is it like?

4. what is it like to study maths degree? - is it similar to gcse maths, A level maths but more further like in more detail?

5. will a person who enjoyed gcse maths, would like to do this degree?

6. if you study this degree, which careers can you go to?

7. if you study this degree, can you easily find jobs?

8. by studying this degree, what is the salary like to be for the job options this degree provides.

I hope anyone will answer my questions, if you only know few questions please still answer it, it would be really helpful.

thanks

Is this about a specific uni or maths degrees in general (sorry I can't see which forum this is in from the app )

this is about maths degree in general. you can also tell me about unis as well. it would be really helpful if you cn give me as much information as you can.

1. Maths degrees vary massively in their entry requirements, from A*A*A*+ STEP (one of the uni admissions tests for maths) to a minimum number of UCAS points (perhaps 72 or similar, which is CDE I think). A level maths is almost always compulsory, however some of the top unis either insist or heavily encourage you to do A level further maths also

2. Yes, although the top unis encourage further maths also

3. What you study will vary massively on the uni - if everyone is starting with A/A* in maths/further maths then obviously it will start going beyond that very quickly (eg. multivariate calculus, analysis, algebra (groups + fields, not what you think of as algebra!), dynamics, multivariate statistics and a lot more I've forgotten). If the most maths people have studied is they have a C in maths A level then they will start with the harder topics of A level maths to get that solid first. They may then go into A level further maths, or they may study some of the topics above - it all depends on the course.

4. At the top level, a maths degree isn't very like gcse/a level. It's typically a lot more rigourous, more proofs and concepts than any numbers involved. I suspect at a lower level there would be more work like a level work, but I haven't had that experience.

5. There's a lot more to a maths degree than enjoying gcse maths tbh. But if you don't enjoy gcse maths (for reasons other than it being too simplified as I know a few people who thought) then I wouldn't recommend a maths degree

6. A maths degree opens a lot of doors - there's not many, if any, careers which specifically require a maths degree, but generally numerate and logical careers (anything in tech/finance/teaching etc.) is open to you

7. I think this depends as much on the job market at the time of graduation - but in general a maths degree won't hold you back in the job market

8. This massively depends on what career you do It could be anything from fairly low paid to very highly paid. I believe the average is quite high though compared to the UK average

Hope that is helpful!

thanks this was helpful.

can you please tell me if I enjoy gcse maths, is this degree right for me?

That's a bit of a difficult question...not everyone who enjoys gcse maths is right for a maths degree. What bits do you enjoy most? A degree in maths is likely to be more on the algebra side, do you enjoy algebra?

I think I enjoy algebra part and my teacher said that I am good in algebra but I am weak in geometry.

That's likely to be a good start then, algebra will be more important than geometry What year are you going into?

While it's good to have some ideas about what you might do in the future, you'll likely have a better idea if you'll enjoy a maths degree once you have got some way into your A levels - if you like GCSE maths and have the grades for it then you can do maths and further maths A level (you'll ideally want at least a 7 at GCSE for maths and an 8 for further maths). If you enjoy those then you're going in the right direction - if not you may find something else you love more along the way
