Mathematics A Level at Princes Risborough School

Course description

For those who would like to take on the challenge of gaining a much deeper understanding of the meaning of Mathematics. It presents excellent training for problem solving and other related intellectual skills which can be transferred to other subjects e.g. Science, Business Studies, and Technology. It is a highly regarded qualification for entry to both university and other careers e.g. Science, Engineering, Computing, Architecture, Economics, Accountancy and Teaching. Pure Maths, Statistics, Mechanics and/or Decision Maths will be studied making up 3 modules for AS and a further 3 for A2.

Entry requirements

Normal Sixth Form entry requirements (5 or more A*-C grade passes at GCSE including English Language and Mathematics), plus GCSE grade B or above in Mathematics. Note that students expected to achieve an A* or high A grade should be able to fit in the necessary study for AS Further Mathematics within the time allowed for a single A Level and are very strongly recommended to do this, even if they are doing too many courses to study the whole Further Mathematics A’ level.
