Mathematics A Level at St Francis Xavier 6th Form College (SFX College)

Course description

Mathematics is one of the most respected A levels and can lead to many different careers as well as supporting your other A levels. It will build on much of what you have studied at GCSE, especially the algebra, and will also introduce many other useful topics. If you are very talented at Maths (at least an A grade at GCSE) and are considering Maths, Economics, Computing or Physics at university you could consider also studying Further Maths. This would mean that half your time at College would be spent doing Maths, so you should only choose this if you absolutely love it.

Entry requirements

In addition to Programme Entry Requirements applicants must also meet specific Course Entry Requirements:

Grade B in Maths and GCSE score of 5.5 or above OR Grade A in Maths


Assessment is 100% examination based.

Future opportunities

For many of us Mathematics extends into our chosen profession: civil servants need to analyse data; economists need to recognise financial trends; engineers need to take account of stress patterns in physical materials.

This subject is useful if you want to go on to study maths, engineering, computing, economics or a science at degree level. It can also be beneficial for research based subjects, such as psychology or subjects such as business. There are many careers that you can go into after studying maths.
