Mathematics students need to have a real passion for the subject and be keen to do at least four hours per week independent study outside of the classroom. If you are good at mathematics; why not consider studying further mathematics? There are three overarching themes in AS / A-Level Mathematics:
Mathematical argument, language and proof
Mathematical problem solving
The branches of mathematics that you will study are:
Pure Mathematics: This is the bulk of the course and builds on your knowledge from GCSE. Some topics will already be familiar such as algebra, trigonometry, and geometry. You will need to have an excellent grasp of algebraic techniques for success in these questions.
Statistics: This will involve analysing a large data set which you will study in lessons in the lead up to the exam.
Mechanics: Similar to Physics, the mechanics element of the course applies mathematics to real life objects and the forces applied to them.
You will need GCSE Maths at grade 7 (preferred), in addition to the general entry criteria.
