Reading maths is going to be compulsory for youth up to the age of 18 in the UK. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will announce this soon. They want Britain to have the best education system in the world, so they want to change the education policy. He says that in the coming times, the emphasis will be on analytical skills. The youth have to be ready for this.
Only half of UK students aged 16-19 study maths. There are approximately 8 million adults whose math skills are comparable to those of a primary school student. Sunak will also mention all these things in his address. Sunak plans to have students take compulsory maths along with other subjects.
Maths will not be read under subject-based qualification
Sunak wants students to take compulsory maths along with different subjects. This means teaching maths through a different medium than A-level (advanced level qualification) until the age of 18. In fact, A-Level in the UK is a subject-based qualification for students aged 16 and above.
This is personal for me: Sunak
According to British media reports, Sunak will start his address with – This is personal for me. In his address, he will say – whatever opportunities I have got today, it is because of my education. In the coming times, the emphasis will be on data and statistics in every job. That’s why children should have analytical skills. According to reports, the new policy will not be implemented before the next elections. The next general election in Britain will be held in 2025.
