Senior Phase Course Choice – Maths Information

Wednesday 2nd March 2022

Are you aware of the exciting changes to pathways in the Scottish Maths Curriculum?  For many years the natural assumption was that pupils should select the traditional Maths course regardless of their future career aspirations.  As part of this year’s S3, 4 and 5 course choice process we would like to remind you of some changes that have been made to Maths in Scotland, which have been outlined to parents and young people throughout the preparation for our course choice process which is currently underway.    

You should continue to select Maths if you want to follow a career path in areas like Science, Medicine, Nursing and Engineering.  However, if you are keen to study areas like Social Sciences, Business, Politics or Psychology then we advise you to select Applications of Mathematics. 

The Applications of Mathematics course offers units in Modelling, Statistics and Finance which lend themselves better to the types of content required when studying these subjects at University.

We strongly encourage you to check the individual requirements of each College, training or University course you are interested in applying for before completing your course choice process.  Further information can also be accessed on our website at the following address Senior Phase Course Choice
