I was talking to my nephew today and asked him what degree he wanted to do - he replied maths and trinity college cambridge - which is no suprise as he is very gifted at maths. However, he then added 'but I don't think I should because a) there is no money in math and B) a lot of employers are intimdated my maths from Oxbridge and cannot see its applications.'(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I couldn't think of a satisfactory response to the issues he raised about maths.

Any ideas?
