Choices: What options do students have for studying science, maths and related subjects, and what do they choose?Uptake of a subject at GCSE and A level gives a good indication of the quality of teaching of that subject. If students are taught well and engaged in lower years, they are more likely to choose to continue with science and maths at A level. The same is true for university options, employment and vocational routes after school.

In order to give students’ the greatest opportunities for employment and further education, they need to be able to make the best-informed decisions as early as possible. This GCSE choice (C1), A level options (C2 and C3), and ensuring they are equipped with knowledge of further education (C4) and careers (C7). It’s also crucial to provide equal opportunities for all students (C6).
