Course description

Mathematics builds upon the skills from GCSE to enable you to solve more complex problems.

Course content

Calculus, the mathematics of growth and change on which so many applications depend is introduced and developed. In addition you will study statistics and extend your GCSE knowledge of averages, standard deviation and probability. You will also study mechanics which is the study of forces and the movement of objects, and has many applications in the sciences, particularly physics and engineering.

Entry requirements

Minimum of 5 A*- C grades in at least 4 different GCSE subjects, including English and Maths.

A grade B in the chosen subject is required. English and Maths grades will be used to indicate ability for options where no GCSE grade is available. (e.g. Film studies).

Future opportunities

Mathematics is a key component of many jobs and degree courses, from Genetics and Geography to Economics, Finance, Accounting and Computing. Recent research suggests that people with A-Level Mathematics can earn 10% more than colleagues with similar qualifications. Childwall SSA students have gone to a wide range of UK universities to study this subject.
