In a changing world dominated by technology, it is the skills learned from studying mathematics and science that will matter most. Yet these are exactly the subjects that the vast majority of 16 year olds are turning away from – put off by the misconception that Maths and Physics are inaccessible and only for the ultra-bright, that it is difficult to secure top grades in these subjects and that they have little future career relevance.

The Your Life team are looking to bring about a ‘once in a generation’ step-change in Maths and Physics subject uptake. We need to reinforce the message that the choice of subjects at A Level are equally important as the results themselves, and that the mathematics and science students of today have the greatest opportunity to be the CEOs of tomorrow.
