Mathematics A Level at Cardinal Newman College

Course description

A Level Maths is a fantastic subject which combines ‘Pure Maths’ such as algebra, geometry and functions, with Applied Maths modules. It shows potential employers that you have a highly logical mind that can present organised arguments to solve numerical problems — a skill which is widely sought after. We can guarantee that every student will receive first class tuition using a variety of teaching strategies making Cardinal Newman, in our opinion, the only place to study Maths.

Course content

Students will sit three compulsory examinations at the end of Year 13. Two will be in Pure Maths and one will be made up of a combination of Mechanics and Statistics. The first module extends certain topics you have studied at GCSE (number, algebra, graphs) and introduces new ones (e.g. calculus) so that you have the basic tools needed to study Maths at a more advanced level.

Entry requirements

At least two B’s and three C’s at GCSE, including at least a Grade 6 in GCSE Maths.


Exam: 100%
