Mathematics AS and A level

Students studying AS or A level Mathematics currently follow the Edexcel course, although since the change to linear examinations, all of the content in the AS/A level Mathematics qualification is compulsory and is the same for all examination boards:

Pure Mathematics (66%) methods and techniques which underpin the study of all other areas of mathematics, such as, proof, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and vectors.

Statistics (17%) statistical sampling, data presentation and probability leading to the study of statistical distributions

Mechanics  (17%) the study of the physical world, modelling the motion of objects and the forces acting on them.

The students sit all exams in the summer of Year 13. Students taking AS Mathematics complete 2 papers, each of 1½ hours duration. A level Mathematics students complete 3 x 2 hour papers.

Further Mathematics

AS and A level Further Mathematics is offered to students studying AS/A level Mathematics. It covers a wider range of pure topics and gives students the opportunity to study additional application modules including further statistics, further mechanics, or discrete mathematics.

GCSE Re-Sit students

Students in sixth form who haven’t achieved a grade 4 or above in GCSE Maths must complete a re-sit.  Students must attend all lessons and complete independent study during the year. There are opportunities for students to re-sit in November and June.

A Level Support

Students can book with the Maths coach during their free period for one to one support. They can do this by emailing Miss Smith directly, or coming to the Maths office.
