A Level Mathematics

Are you passionate about exploring mathematical ideas and methods including calculus and trigonometry and understanding how to construct logical arguments?

Are you interested in learning more about the power and wonder of algebra?

If yes, then this course is right for you!

Maths can be used to model and simplify many aspects of the situations we encounter in everyday life, from the distribution of heights in the population to the mechanics of the operation of a lift. Maths is an A Level entry requirement at University for all sorts of subjects, while the skills you will learn will make you more desirable for almost any job!

In fact, careers in finance, computing, engineering, and business are all crying out for people with maths qualifications, while studies have shown that people with Maths A Level tend to earn more on average than people without it.

To access this course you are required to have:

  • Five or more GCSEs at Grade C / 4 or above including English, and B / 6 in maths
  • The required QoE score

During this course you will study:

  • Pure Maths 1
  • Pure Maths 2
  • Mechanics
  • Statistics

By studying this course you will:

  • Develop your understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment
  • Develop abilities to reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs
  • Extend your range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult, unstructured problems
  • Develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected
