“I chose this subject because I find the nature of Maths and the process of using logic and laws to solve problems immensely satisfying. The class dynamics are great, combining a small-ish size with a decent pace and like-minded people and the helpful, friendly staff are always there to offer guidance on particularly difficult problems. Further Maths doesn’t necessarily have to complement other subjects – for instance my other subjects are English, History and French – but it shows a great deal of skill and commitment to prospective universities and employers. The careers pathways from a Maths degree are diverse. I’m hopeful that Pure Maths at university could feed into a career in research.”
