Careers without Maths


One of the most common difficulties surrounding subject choice relates to the choice between Maths and Maths Literacy. Maths is a difficult subject for many students and is a common source of stress especially during exams. This leads to the question of whether to take Maths or whether to opt for Maths Literacy.  One of the misconceptions often quoted is that without Maths you will not get a worthwhile job one day. This is not true! There are hundreds and hundreds of careers that you can do without Maths. It is true that there are many careers that you cannot do without Maths. This is because Maths is a “gateway” subject to fields such as science, engineering, medicine, IT as well as into some areas of commerce.  If you are considering any of these fields and you are struggling to cope with Maths then you need to consider your options carefully before deciding of whether to take Maths or not.
