Maths AS/A2 Level at Kings Priory School

Course description

The A Level Mathematics course is split in to six modules: Core1, Core 2 and Statistics 1 which are studied in year 12, and Core 3, Core 4 and Mechanics 1 which are studied in year 13. To achieve an A* students must score over 80% in all modules, and an average over 90% for Core 3 and 4.

During the course students should develop problem solving and reasoning skills, and learn how to apply their knowledge in real-world situations. They will be taught in a diverse number of ways including group and paired work, independent study, activities and investigations.


One paper lasting 1 hour 30 minutes is taken for each module with grades being awarded from A* to E. Core 1 is a non-calculator exam.

Future opportunities

A Level Mathematics will prepare students for university courses with mathematical content, as well as a variety of career paths.
