So many possibilities!

There wouldn't be enough time, nor space to note them all!

The strongest potential job with this combination would be an engineer (any sort, except buildings-related).


  • Teacher/ senior lecturer.
  • Professor of mathematics.
  • Entrepreneur.
  • Accountant.
  • Maths specialist, e.g. statistics etc.


  • Scientist.
  • Physicist.
  • Professor of Physics.
  • Quantum physicist/ mechanic.


  • Chemist.
  • Pharmaceuticals industry A.K.A drugs Manufacturer (sounds stupid, but can get you 6,7 or 8 figure salaries!).
  • Medicine.
  • Chemical engineering/ synthesis.
  • Military (as a chemical bio-engineer, for chemical warfare.

Computing (my favorite):

  • Software programmer.
  • Hacker (don't -.-).
  • Government related subjects (spying, infiltrating etc).
  • Computer Engineer.
  • Computer Scientist.
  • Web Designer.
  • Graphics Designer.
  • The best thing about taking computing jobs is that it will NEVER go down on demand, there will ALWAYS be a higher demand of jobs in the computing industry than any other industry on the planet, especially in highly industrialized countries, e.g. US or China etc).

This list isn't remotely complete. You can work chemistry,maths, physics, computing into any industrial, educational, scientific, or governmental field. Chemistry is a very versatile science. Mastery of chemistry is associated with excellent analytical and mathematical skills. Students of chemistry are able to solve problems and think things through. These skills are useful for any job! However, the Computing A level will be in my opinion be the best towards your future.

Slightly biased response (because I love physics)

A person with a Physics/ Maths degree can go on to literally go on to do anything. Physicists get the third highest salaries (after medics and lawyers). Loads of people who do a physics degree go on to do top jobs in the city.
