AS/A-level Mathematics

A-Level maths builds on the knowledge and skills you learnt during your GCSE studies. It starts to introduce some complex and interesting ideas about the relationship between all aspects of maths and science.

There are a number of modules that you study. Four Core modules and two Applied. The content builds on itself as you progress through the course to give you a thorough and detailed understanding of Maths and its real world applications.

AS/A-level Mathematics follows the Edexcel syllabus. It is assessed by examination at the end of the course. We expect students to have at least a grade 7 in GCSE Mathematics and at least a grade 4 in four other GCSE subjects, 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, this is normally studied in year 12.
