Mathematics AS & A Level at The Wellington Academy

Course description

A Level mathematics is one of the most revered A Level qualifications that can be attained in KS5 and is sought after by top Universities and employers alike. The course is designed so that you will develop your ability to reason logically, extend your range of mathematical skills and use mathematics as an effective means of communication. Students are required to have achieved a minimum of a grade B in GCSE Mathematics to be considered for study at A Level.

Throughout the course you will study four Core Mathematics modules which will build upon the topics studied at GCSE. Your studies will be supplemented by applications units in Statistics and Decision Mathematics.

In Statistics we look at the process of data collection and how such data can be analysed. Decision Maths is an aspect of mathematics that has developed in line with the growth in computer technology and looks at the use of algorithms to solve problems.
