Maths (Use) of A-Level at Wymondham High School

Course description

THIS COURSE PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY to study Mathematics for those who enjoy or need Mathematics beyond GCSE but who do not require the traditional full A Level Mathematics qualification to pursue their future career. The course develops understanding and resourcefulness in the use of mathematics and covers the mathematics required to support all Science subjects, Psychology, Geography, and other subjects at A Level and beyond.

Entry requirements

Minimum B grade in GCSE Mathematics.

Future opportunities

It is important to stress that students intending to follow a degree path in Computing, Engineering, Medicine or Physics will probably find the traditional AS and A Level GCE Mathematics a condition of entry to university courses, however other courses will welcome AS Level Use of Mathematics. Please ensure you check the requirements of any course you are thinking of applying for beyond Sixth Form with the provider. Students intending to follow a path in Finance, Business, the Sciences or Social Sciences will find this qualification of benefit on their university course. Mathematical skills are highly prized and an AS qualification in some form of mathematics will be valuable when applying for university entry and will give you a significant advantage in the job market.
