The A level in Maths is designed for those who wish to extend the maths they learnt at school and/or progression on to higher education at university or at Boston College.

What will I do?

You will begin your learning by studying three core units:, Pure Maths 1 (algebraic methods, coordinate geometry, trigonometry, binomial expansion, differentiation, integration, vectors, exponential and logarithms), Statistics (data, correlation, probability, statistical distribution and hypothesis testing) and Mechanics (kinematics, constant and variable acceleration, forces and motions).

You will then continue your learning by studying Pure Maths 1 and 2 (proof, algebra and functions, coordinate geometry, sequences and series, trigonometry, differentiation, integration, exponentials and logarithms, numerical methods, vectors), Statistics (statistical sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability, statistical distributions, statistical hypothesis testing) and Mechanics (quantities and units in mechanics, kinematics, forces and Newton’s Laws and moments).

In addition to your course, you may also study either Functional Skills or GCSE English and Maths, dependent on your current GCSE grade.

The entry qualifications for the A level in Maths are five GCSEs at grades 5 or above (Old GCSE grade C or above) including Maths at grade 7 or above (Old GCSE grade A or above) or equivalent.
