This course is for 16-19 year olds who have an interest in the study of pure mathematics and applications of mathematics (statistics and mechanics). Students need to have a good standard of algebra and geometry from GCSE level, show ability to study independently, discuss and explain the multiple stage calculations and justify the limitations of the mathematical modelling.
General Qualifications: For 3 A Level subjects you require between 5 and 6 GCSEs grade A*-C (8/9-4/5) in academic subjects, taken at one sitting. Specifically for A level mathematics you need a B grade, or 6 grade in GCSE Mathematics.
The majority of the topics studied will belong to pure mathematics (e.g. algebra, functions, exponentials and logarithms, trigonometry, calculus, vectors), as well as including some statistics and mechanics topics.
Assessment by public examination at the end of the second year (3 x 2 hours). (You will be assessed continuously during the course and at the end of the first year you must pass the mock exam to be able to progress to second year.)
On successful completion of the course you will achieve an A Level in Mathematics. Mathematics is an academic A Level which is required for many courses at universities, especially for degrees in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, economics and finance. It is desirable for other courses like architecture, medicine, pharmacy, and many science related subjects.
