Statistics is an application of Mathematics but is a growing field of study in its own right; more and more areas of our lives are influenced by Statistics and knowing just how they fit into other studies must be an advantage.
Statistics is used in everything from deciding how much orange juice Tesco will buy next year to whether or not a new drug will indeed cure a serious illness. In between is deciding on provision for school places, town planning, quality control in industry and even the ability to understand party political broadcasts!!
It is said that no-one can now expect to get through their working life without some contact with computers; the same is rapidly becoming true of Statistics.
Statistics has been a successful area of Carmel since the College opened and you might want to join in our success.
Where will this course lead?
Statistics A Level is a reputable subject and a good grade will help with any Higher Education application. It will also be a major benefit to any qualification involving Psychology, Geography and Biology. Statistics is now used so widely that many employers would see some qualification in Statistics as a distinct advantage. Many students have enjoyed Statistics so much that they go on to study it further at university. Statistics is the perfect choice if you are planning to follow a career path into finance or business.
I enjoy studying Statistics because it is an interesting subject which can be used in real life situations once I leave college. The subject helps me to understand aspects of my other courses, such as Psychology and Business. Being a student at Carmel has given me opportunities to meet new people and study subjects which really interest me.
