Qualification type: Level 3 GCE AS & GCE A
This course enables you to build and expand your problem solving skills, develop your analytical thinking and your ability to spot patterns and create logical arguments to solve problems. The course is designed for students who have enjoyed mathematics and have coped with the demands of higher tier GCSE. It will help you write structured solutions to complex problems; develop an understanding of algebra, trigonometry, differentiation and integration to name just four topics and use fundamental theories to solve applied problems in mechanics and statistics.
Progression routes: An A Level in Maths opens up many progression routes into both higher education and employment. The study of a degree course such as Mathematics, Engineering, Medicine, Accountancy and Architecture would benefit from an understanding of A Level Maths.
