- I did A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics when I was your age.
- Then went straight to University where I did a Joint Mathematics and Economics degree.
- I then studied to become an accountant for 3 years until I got bored and then decided to take up teaching.
- Teaching is not boring for sure.
- I then taught Mathematics for 7 years at Kaskenmoor School - 11 to 16, up to O-Level as it was then.
- I took a parallel move to North Chadderton (with slightly less money) in order to teach A-Level Mathematics.
- I taught the A-Level Applied and Mechanics modules for 4 years as well as 16+ maths and youngsters. Lots of A's and B's during that time.
- There were very few computers in school - I'd come from a school with hundreds of computers.
- So over the next 22 years I gradually dropped Mathematics and went into ICT.
- I even gave away my mathematics notes.

But

- Can do the theory but rusty - certainly with Pure Mathematics.
- Will be prepared.
- Will be able to see the pitfalls that new entrants to A-Level Maths have.
- Have to regain ways of explaining maths - picking up tricks.
