Mathematics AS/A2 Level at The Helena Romanes School and Sixth Form Centre
Mathematics can be studied with a part emphasis on Statistics or Mechanics. Both these areas are combined with a core component of Pure Mathematics at AS and A2 level.
Mathematics A levels introduces a method of thinking and analysis as a tool for the modern world. All students will follow the modular course administered by Edexcel.
Course Content and Assessment
Mathematics with Statistics and Pure Mathematics with Mechanics are taught in 6 units as follows:
Pure Mathematics: C1, C2, C3, C4, FP1, FP2
Mechanics: C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, M2
Statistics: C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, S2
All students study C1, C2, C3 and C4 over the two years. AS level consists of the modules C1, C2 and either S1 or M1.
The combination in Year 13 is usually C3, C4, M2 or C3, C4 and S2. It is possible for Mechanics students to opt for S1 instead of M2 in year 13 and similarly Statistics students can opt for M1.
In order to study Mathematics at A Level you must have achieved 5 GCSE levels A* - C. Minimum entry level for Mathematics is Higher Tier Grade A.
Exams in both years.
Mathematics is useful for many areas in society especially science, engineering and practical employment. The majority of employers look for a good knowledge of numeracy as a prerequisite. Many university courses have strong mathematics components.
