This course is a general course providing a mixture of Mathematics and Financial Capability based credits at Level 2. It is terminating course with no pathway into any of the Level 3 Mathematics and Statistics courses.

Southland Boys' High School endeavours to timetable courses depending on students' needs, interests and future plans. Many factors can influence whether a course is able to be offered in the following year. These can include:

- Student demand
- Staff availability
- Resourcing

These factors can also impact on timetabling, and as a result students will be asked for input about any clashes that may occur.

Where a course is not able to be run, students' back-up subjects will be used. If there are issues with student selections and the timetabling process, students will have the opportunity to make a decision in conjunction with staff input on the best solution.
