Mathematics AS/A Level
In both years of this course you will study Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. The Pure Mathematics extends the GCSE work on algebra, co-ordinate geometry, vectors and trigonometry and introduces you to exponential and logarithmic functions and calculus. Mechanics and Statistics both involve the modelling of real world situations using appropriate mathematics; Mechanics relating to the physical world and Statistics to the presentation and handling of data.
Entry requirements: Grade 6 in Mathematics - however, experience shows that students are more likely to be successful in AS Mathematics with a grade 7 or above at GCSE.
Course assessment: Both AS and A level Mathematics are assessed by external written examination
