AS/A-level Mathematics

As/A-level Mathematics is taught on a modular basis, and follows the Edexcel syllabus. We expect students to have at least a grade A in order to be accepted for this course.

Pupils are taught for 5 periods a week in year 12 and 5 in year 13 and are expected to undertake considerable independent study outside of lessons. For an AS Level in Mathematics (normally done in year 12) students study three modules:

  • Core 1
  • Core 2
  • Decision 1/Statistics 1/Mechanics 1

All are equally weighted towards the final grade.

Pupils who decide to go on to continue their study and take A-level Mathematics will study a further three modules:

  • Core 3
  • Core 4
  • A further module chosen from Statistics, Mechanics or Decision

Making six modules in total

More details can be found on the EDEXCEL Website
