Mathematics - A Level at The Forest Academy

Course description

We will be following the EDEXCEL Linear A level specifications. This course will be examined at the end of two years and will require students to sit 3 exams each 2 hours long. The ratio of Core maths to Applied maths is 2:1 with no optional element to the applied content. All students will cover some Statistics content and some Mechanics content within their A level mathematics course.

Entry requirements

A minimum of a grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics is required to study Mathematics at Beal. However, students who attain a 6 grade may find that the demands of the full A level are too challenging, these students will be directed to an AS only course at the end of the first year.


Students are regularly assessed in both Pure and Applied Mathematics throughout the course, it will be expected that a pass grade is maintained across all assessments to continue to the full A2 course at the end of the first year.

Final exams are all taken at the end of year 13.

Future opportunities

A level Mathematics, particularly when linked with other subjects, is not only a qualification for higher education but also for a variety of employment opportunities including Banking, Insurance, Stockbroking, Advertising, Engineering etc.
