Maths-based subjects and the law are proving to be popular career choices for our students who have just received their A-Level results. Here’s what just a few of them are planning to study:

Umat Akpunar got three Distinction* qualifications in travel and tourism, ebusiness and IT. He said: ‘I am going to Birmingham City University to study accountancy and finance. Maths is my strongest point and I have enjoyed it over the years so it makes sense going to university and studying it as well. I think business was the subject that I found the hardest this year.’

Alex Huxtable got a Distinction* in BTEC IT and A grades in maths and business A Level. He said: ‘I am studying maths at Loughborough. I wanted to go there as I like the sports side of it and my passion has always been maths academically as well so it all fits in. I am celebrating the same way that I did with my GCSEs and going to the Reading festival. I haven’t planned far enough ahead to know what I want to do as a career at the end of it.’

Hayden Tetley got A* grades in maths and further maths, plus an A in physics and B in English. He said: ‘I am going to study a four-year masters degree in maths at Nottingham University and will then decide what to do later. It was a lot of hard work and revision but I really enjoy maths and I am very happy with these results.’

Simran Kang and Ida Koczor both plan to practice law. Simran, who got A* grades in business studies and psychology plus an A in English said: ‘I am going to the University of Leicester to study law, so all my hard work has paid off thankfully. I just can’t believe it. It is a new chapter and a new start. I am pleased with my A* in business because I knew how much I had to work for it. I have always been interested in law and different cases, so ideally I would like to be a barrister.’

Ida got A grades in religious studies, English literature and French. She said: ‘I’m going to do law with French law at UCL. Maybe I will end up practising in France. I am not entirely sure yet but I will just see how it goes. I have always been interested in the way that law interacts with society and I thought that combining English law and French law would be good at university. I will have a placement over in France during the third year. It will be a lot of hard work and lots of reading. The hardest exam for me was probably French because you have to study to get the fluency you need but they were all quite hard.’
