The long term value of an A* grade in GCSE Maths

7th June 2018

Very important new research from the Institute for Fiscal Studies. 7 years after graduation men and women with A* in GCSE maths earn £7,000 more than those with an A in GCSE maths.

And research on graduate earnings. Controlling for background, grades etc economics and medicine graduates earn 25% more than history, biology or English graduates.
