Maths - A Level





Awarding Body




About the course

Maths was born out of a desire to explain the world around us. It is the very language of science. Without it, physics, chemistry, engineering and architecture would never have developed as they have. Whilst materials science built the rocket that took man to the moon, mathematics provided the calculations that determined the flight-path and allowed for a safe return. Mathematics also has elements of philosophy and logic. It develops the skills and rigour you need for solving problems.

Entry Requirements

  • 6 GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Maths
  • A grade B or above in GCSE Higher Maths
What will I do on this course?

There are two modules studied throughout the A Level. The first is pure mathematics; building on the algebra, trigonometry and geometry studied at GCSE level. This module accounts for two thirds of your overall grade. The second module covers applied mathematics and contains both mechanics and statistics.

Course modules include:

  • Pure mathematics delves deeper into familiar topics, such as sequences and vectors, whilst introduces new ideas such as calculus and
    mathematical proof
  • Statistics explores ways of representing and interpreting data and focuses on probability
  • Mechanics has similarities to some aspects of physics and looks at how objects move and are affected by forces such as gravity
Who is it for?

This course is part of a full time A Level programme of 4 different subjects and will appeal to Year 11 students:

  • If you're looking further ahead, perhaps at a career in engineering, accountancy or economics, you'll find Maths an invaluable subject
  • If you enjoy solving challenging puzzles and like dealing with numerical and logical problems, A Level Maths is the subject for you
  • It's also complementary to the sciences, geography, psychology and all medical courses
What could I do next?
  • The majority of A Level Maths students go on to university and take a range of subjects from Maths, Economics, Accountancy and Sciences to Psychology.
  • You could also study Further Maths in either your first or second year (subject to timetabling).

You will need an interview for this course
