Mathematics A Level (OCR) at Marling School
You may wish to consider the continued study of Mathematics because you enjoy logical thinking, want to find out more about how Mathematics is used in the real world, derive satisfaction from problem solving or wish to delve deeper into the mathematical ideas introduced at GCSE level. Mathematics complements a vast number of other subjects as well as being an important qualification in its own right and is an essential qualification for some career and higher education opportunities. A good grade can lead to a wide range of mathematical subjects at higher education and supports scientific and technical subjects which always have a mathematical component.
Core 1 and Core 2 consist of Pure Mathematics. The core modules develop fields already met at GCSE level, such as Coordinate Geometry and Trigonometry, while introducing new fields such as Calculus. The applied module will be in Mechanics, Statistics or Decision Mathematics and offers students the opportunity to use their Pure Mathematics to mathematically model real-life situations.
Core 3 and Core 4 consist of Pure Mathematics. The applied module will be in Mechanics, Statistics or Decision Mathematics and offers students the opportunity to use their Pure Mathematics to mathematically model real-life situations.
Students are required to achieve at least a Grade B at Higher Level GCSE maths but a Grade A is preferred.
