A-Level Mathematics at East Sussex College

Course description

During this two-year course you will deepen your knowledge of mathematical problem solving to achieve a highly regard qualification.

Course content

Over the two years you will take your passion for problem solving to the next level as you increase your knowledge in Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. You will develop your ability to spot clarity, pattern and structure in mathematical problems as you explore differentiation, integration, vectors and trigonometry. The skills you develop will be very valuable and in great demand and are central to technology, medicine, engineering and almost every aspect of everyday life.

During the course you will study topics including:

  • Algebra and functions
  • Coordinated geometry
  • Differentiation
  • Integration
  • Sequences and series
  • Trigonometry
  • Exponentials and logarithms
  • Complex numbers
  • Vectors

By the end of the course you will have developed a valuable set of skills for your future career, which are currently in great demand by employers at home and abroad.

Entry requirements

To apply for this course you will need to meet the minimum requirements of 5 Grade 4 GCSEs (including Maths and English) and have a Grade 7 in GCSE Mathematics.

Assessment

Your progress will be regularly assessed by tests, and coursework, with regular feedback and guidance being offered for constant improvement.

Financial information

There may be some additional costs during the course for trips and visits to further your learning. You will also need a scientific calculator for the majority of your modules.

Future opportunities

This course would be good to study alongside other A-Level courses such as Further Maths or Physics, allowing for progression to university courses in STEM-based subjects in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Maths.

Alternatively, you may progress onto an apprenticeship or into employment in engineering or IT based roles.
