Course Overview
AS and A Level Maths develops knowledge and skills across questions requiring use of mathematical argument, knowledge and proof, problem solving, modelling and use of data in statistics. You will learn to recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between ‘real world’ problems and standard mathematical models. You will also develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general.

A Level Maths supports other A Level subjects well such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Economics.

AS/A Level Further Maths is recommended for able mathematicians and is increasingly a preferred option at many universities for those intending to study subjects such as Physics, Engineering or Chemistry.
At AS level Unit 1 is assessed through a 2.5 hour written paper based on Pure Maths; Unit 2 tests Applied Maths and has a section based on Statistics and a section based on Mechanics. The Unit 2 paper is 1.75 hours.

Unit 1 is worth 25% and Unit 2 is worth 15% of the full A level qualification.

At A2 level, Units 3 and 4 are assessed by two written papers. Unit 3 is assessed through a 2.5 hour written paper based on Pure Maths; Unit 4 examines Applied Maths and has a section based on Statistics and a section based on Differential Equations, Numerical Methods and Mechanics. The Unit 4 paper is 1.75 hours.

Unit 3 is worth 35% and Unit 4 is worth 25% of the full A level qualification.

There will be internal mock examinations on published dates to provide realistic examination experience.
5 GCSEs at grade C/4 or above including Mathematics grade B/6 on Higher Tier.

Should an A level applicant have or be predicted a grade D/3 in either GCSE Maths or English (and at least a grade C/4 in the other subject) then your application will be considered.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
A level Mathematics is relevant to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In addition Mathematics would be a desirable qualification in many occupations; The Civil Service, finance, banking, in technical, computing, scientific and engineering work, and in governmental and developmental institutions.
Some courses may require equipment and/or uniforms to be purchased.
