AS Mathematics at The Beacon School

It builds on work that you will have met at GCSE, but also involves new ideas that some of the greatest minds of the millennium have produced. You will study Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Statistics, and have the opportunity to opt for three stand alone modules in Decision Mathematics, Further Pure Mathematics and Advanced Mechanics.
You could take this course to complement other advanced level courses or to prepare for the A2 part of an Advanced GCE in Mathematics, which could lead onto higher education in areas of Mathematics, related areas such as Engineering, Economics, Physics or more general higher education courses. With further training, you could go into a job related to Mathematics such as an Accountant, Engineer, Financial Adviser or Teacher. You could also go straight into a job as the AS GCE is a recognised qualification that will help you develop the skills, understanding and knowledge that many employers across lots of industries are looking for.
