  • Entry Requirements
    Grade 9-6 in GCSE Maths. Please see our Entry Requirements for more guidance.
  • Benefits/Skills
    Studying A level Maths enables you to strengthen a range of transferable, sought-after skills, such as statistical, problem-solving and logical as a result of this, not only do these skills prepare you for work and further study, they are also vital tools for everyday life.
  • Units/Modules
    The UK’s knowledge economy (an economical system driven by ideas, intellectual capital and technology) needs more mathematical skills for the financial, communication, engineering and transportation sectors, as well as highly specialised scientific areas, such as genome modelling. A level Maths is made up of four units. There are two core units which make up two-thirds of the qualification and provide you with techniques in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus - forming the fundamental building blocks of the subject. Mathematical applications in statistics and mechanics make up the remaining third of the qualification.
  • Careers/Progression
    Maths can lead to various subjects at university, including science and engineering, as well as careers in data analysis and digital marketing. The logic and reasoning skills developed by studying A level Maths ensure the qualification is widely respected.
