Maths A/S at Immanuel College

Course description

“Why was the doctor in the “Cot-Death” case struck off?”; “Why is the retirement age going up?”; “Why don’t all of the mobile phone calls get jumbled up?”; “How secure is my credit card transaction on the internet?” The answers to these, and many other questions, begin with mathematics.

Course content

The full A level course (6 modules) requires students to have studied mathematics in three branches. Core modules (C1, C2, C3 & C4) cover pure mathematics - equations, sequences, graphs, differentiation and integration. Statistics (S1) extends the ideas on Data Handling covered at GCSE. Mechanics (M1) covers work on moving and stationary bodies by considering vectors, forces, speeds and accelerations. The AS qualification is available to students who complete the first three modules. (C1, C2 & S1)

Entry requirements

5 GCSEs at Grade C or above.

Mathematics grade B or better.

Students must have studied GCSE maths at the Higher Tier.

Future opportunities

A level maths is very highly regarded by university admissions tutors (and by employers). In recent years Immanuel students have gained places to study maths or physics at some of the country's most prestigious universities. In addition to the pure sciences, other students have gone on to a very wide range of degree courses including; Medical Science; Physiotherapy; Law; English Literature (Creative writing); Music; French; and Art. A smaller number of students have used their maths qualification to move directly into employment - this year will see one former student qualify as a commercial airline pilot and another qualify as a quantity surveyor another student has a career in the electrical industry.
