Mathematics can be challenging, beautiful, powerful and fascinating. Wherever problems need to be solved, mathematics is involved. It is fundamental to the study of engineering, virtually all science subjects and useful for many other subjects.
More and more careers need some knowledge of mathematics or statistics. If you are interested in becoming a linguist, geographer or psychologist, a share-broker, architect or market researcher, a computer programmer, engineer, physicist or biologist – mathematics will open doors.
The Cambridge Pre-U Diploma aims to equip students with the skills required to make a success of their subsequent studies at university, involving not only a solid grounding in each specialist subject at an appropriate level, but also the ability to undertake independent and self-directed learning and to think laterally, critically and creatively.
