Additional Mathematics is kind of important, if your child is intending to pursue any studies related to Mathematics in university. Business, Accounting, Economics, and of course Engineering and Physics are examples of courses requiring some Mathematics.

Hi. Sorry to say. Why not you include some jobs that require Additional Mathematics? Thank you.

Hi, I think there are no jobs that specifically require Additional Mathematics, but it is a prerequisite for H2 Maths (A Levels) here in Singapore.

Thanks for your comment!

Hi I’m a parent who has some queries regarding A Math.

I was hoping, based on your expertise, that you can clarify my doubts.

I understand from SEAB website that there is a new A Math syllabus (4047).

Is this for students starting A Math in 2014? And any difference from the old syllabus (4038)?

Appreciate it, thank you.
