Welcome to the AMSP

As parents and carers, we know you want to help your child succeed and thrive in the adult world. You may be wondering, with so many options available, what subjects they choose? Also, having studied maths all through school up to this point, should they carry on with maths? And if so, which course is right for them?

On this page, you will find the latest information on maths after GCSE so that you can give them the best possible guidance.

Who are the AMSP?

The Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) is dedicated to helping students study maths after their GCSEs. We want to help you help your young person achieve their full potential. Here at the AMSP, we strive to support their enjoyment of maths, help them make the best choices in their further study, and guide them to make the most of their maths skills.

Supporting your child in their next steps

The end of years 11 and 13 can be challenging for young people; they might ask you what to expect in sixth form, college, or university. To help, we offer a range of free online support to help them feel confident progressing to the next step.

We offer support for those moving on to Core Maths, A level maths or A level further maths, as well as for those who are heading to university in the new academic year:

Maths after GCSE

The options for maths at school change over time, so they are likely to be different to when you were at school, but don’t worry, we are here to help; there are three main paths you need to know about:

What are the benefits of studying maths after GCSE?

Studying maths will enable your child to develop many essential skills that employers and universities are looking for, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, analytical thinking, and data interpretation. In addition to STEM careers, the skills gained from studying mathematics are used widely in creative fields such as fashion, filmmaking, design, and marketing.

Some employers, apprenticeship providers, and universities will either require or recommend a post-GCSE maths qualification. They may even offer a reduced university offer for having one. So, it’s worth researching the career path they want to take before choosing.

When looking at post-GCSE courses, such as T-levels or other A level subjects, you will notice that many involve some form of maths. Studying maths alongside other subjects can be very beneficial for getting the highest grades.
