Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas  

-Albert Einstein

A-Level Maths will secure you with the knowledge and confidence to carry out tasks you’re likely to want to do in the future, such as: work out the best way to pay off student debts, choose the most cost-effective mortgage, and make sensible investments.
