The Mathematics A level is a continued study of Mathematical concepts such
as Algebra, Geometry and Calculus. The skills and techniques, which are
developed on the A level Mathematics course, play a significant part in many
other disciplines: including career paths in finance, technology and medicine.
Mathematics, as well as being an important subject in its own right, is vital as
a support for many subjects, both at AS/A Level and in Higher Education. A
qualification in Mathematics is a highly desirable goal for many students,
whatever their long-term plans may be.
Who is the course for?
The course is aimed at students who enjoyed and achieved a good grade on the
higher GCSE Mathematics examination. The qualification is ideal for students
who wish to follow a mathematical based career and is suitable for a wide range
of university courses.
What does it include?
The course includes six units which are delivered over two years. The units
can be made from a selection of Core Mathematics (algebra, trigonometry and
calculus elements), Mechanics, Decision and Statistics.
What can I do next?
Achieving an A level in Mathematics opens up numerous paths. It is a very
sought after A level that will open many doors to whatever your next step will be,
whether in higher education, an apprenticeship or employment.
Mathematics is suitable for those who wish to study subjects at university such
as Engineering, Physics, Electronics, Architecture, Computing, Medicine,
Optometry, Accounting, Actuarial Science, Business, Economics, Social
Sciences and Law.
