More about the course

What will I study

Maths is all around us and we use in many ways including for measurements, money, analysing data, problems involving motion and forces. The difference with A Level Maths compared to GCSE is that you will focus more on algebra rather than numerical maths. You will look at Calculus which involves finding the gradients of curves and the area under curves. The focus of the A Level Maths course means that you can pursue careers in Engineering, Business, Economics, Psychology, Medicine and more.

The A Level maths course is made up of three main topic areas:

  • Pure Maths (algebra, graphs, trigonometry and Calculus)
  • Mechanics
  • Statistics

The final exams are at the end of the two years and are made up of 2/3 Pure maths and 1/6 Statistics and 1/6 Mechanics
