It forecasts a 7% increase for maths in 2009, which will mean about 7,000 students entering university maths departments, against 5,300 in 2005.

There are also expected increases of 3.5% for chemistry and 1.3% for physics in next year's university intake.

However, it appears that in terms of proportion of the total number if incoming students, the percentage of students taking mathematics and sciences did not change that much. There's certainly more work to be done.
