Question: Would Further Maths in Alevel and GCSE help me in science careers please, and when analyzing statistics, what skills will you need?
 Keywords:

I am a statistician – the more mathematical skills you can gain the better. I work in applied areas – estimating parameters from datasets (on Ebola in West Africa, for example). Mathematical skills underpin understanding statistical methods and computer coding helps turn that understanding into results.

As Jonathan says, the more maths the better. I struggled with the maths when I first started at uni, because it was quite a lot harder than what I’d done at A level. I coped (hey, I still work for a uni so I must have done something right) but at that point I really wished I’d done further maths, which would have made the transition quite a lot smoother.

Thank you so much, and I felt really grateful, and I think if I tried hard on this subject, then it will really help me in the science careers.
