2. All-round Expectations

When a student leaves school, everyone they come into contact with expects them to have a basic grounding in multiple subjects. If you feel maths isnโ€™t relevant to you, theyโ€™ll think you a fool when you canโ€™t even perform basic sums. Employers and academic staff want to see well-rounded graduates.

And this can impact your future career prospects. Even in jobs where it isnโ€™t relevant, employers expect you to have a basic level of proficiency in maths and English. If you donโ€™t have these grades, you wonโ€™t even make it past the first round.
