The course will consist of a mix of pure mathematics, statistics and mechanics. It is identical to that taught in the Lower Sixth year of our A Level Mathematics course. AS Mathematics is the right choice for you if:
– You are planning to do three other subjects at A Level, but enjoy your mathematics and want to continue with it beyond GCSE.
– You need a level 3 Mathematics qualification to support your university application, but would find gaining a sufficiently high grade in A Level Mathematics demanding. If you already have specific university courses in mind, check the entry requirements before making your choices.
As with A Level Mathematics, students will need to have studied IGCSE or GCSE Higher Level Mathematics and to have gained a minimum of an A grade/Grade 7.
