Maths AS/A2 Level at Alderbrook School
It has long been argued that the Maths GCSE curriculum in this country does not present adequate challenge for the most able mathematicians. The curriculum consists largely of topics that require procedural methodologies and the various components are somewhat disjointed. However, the A Level curriculum is arguably one of the most challenging Key Stage 5 courses and is highly regarded by universities and employers alike.
Unlike GCSE mathematics, the A level begins to form links between the numerous elements of pure mathematics, which have actual application in the real world. Success at A level requires much greater degrees of commitment, self-motivation and work ethic, even for the most able mathematicians.
