Mathematics A Level at The Ashcombe School
Existing syllabus (AS counts towards overall A-level)
Why study the subject?
Any student who has enjoyed Mathematics to date and has achieved a good GCSE grade in the subject should consider continuing their studies to A-level. Mathematics A-level is a requirement for following several science-based degree courses such as engineering, physics and medicine. It is also considered valuable for many other degree and higher level courses e.g. Geography, Accountancy, Psychology, Business and Banking.
Students will study two modules in Pure Mathematics and one in Applied Mathematics. The Pure Mathematics module will cover topics which will develop algebra, calculus and trigonometry. The Applied Mathematics module deals with the modelling of real situations in a mathematical way; students will have a choice of whether to study statistics or mechanics in this third module.
A good pass at GCSE in Mathematics with at least a grade B is normally needed if students are to be successful in this course.
