Course description

If you have enjoyed studying GCSE Maths, have an interest in Maths, Science or Engineering and enjoy the challenge of solving complex and exciting problems then you should seriously consider studying AS Level Maths.

Maths is a highly regarded A-Level which will offer you opportunities in everything from Business to Engineering to Finance. Maths offers excellent support for many University courses which may involve statistics and analysis modules.

 

Course content

The new A levels for Mathematics and Further Mathematics will be linear in structure.

A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics will develop students' knowledge and skills in three overarching themes:

  • Mathematical argument, language and proof;
  • Mathematical problem solving; and
  • Mathematical modelling.
