You will learn about many aspects of Pure Mathematics including Coordinate Geometry and Graphs and develop techniques to solve equations and other algebraic challenges of greater complexity, as the course progresses. Applications of Mathematics within Statistics and/or Mechanics are studied to enable you to solve real-life problems.
How is the course structured and graded?
The A Level qualification requires the completion of
three separate modules: Pure Mathematics, Statistics
and Mechanics over a two year period. At the end of
the course the examination process will be three two
hour papers covering Pure Maths 1, Pure Mathematics 2,
Statistics and Mechanics.
The AS Level qualification, also based over a two year
period, requires the completion of two papers, two hours
for Pure Mathematics and one hour for Statistics and
Will this course be suitable for me?
To be successful on this course, you will need to have
studied GCSE Mathematics at Higher level and achieved
at least a grade B or equivalent. You should be interested
in persevering to find solutions to questions, in particular
by using the powerful tool of Algebra. The course
involves studying and applying various techniques
to solve both abstract and real-life problems.
What could this course lead to?
This course is useful for many disciplines studied at
university or college including Engineering, the Sciences,
Business and Finance, Accountancy and IT, such as
Designing Games. The skills learned are valued in all
forms of employment.
