The basic components of all Sixth Form Mathematics courses are:

  • Core Mathematics – algebra, trigonometry, calculus, numerical methods and differential equations.
  • Statistics – data presentation, probability distributions and hypothesis testing.
  • Mechanics – kinematics, forces, statics and dynamics.
  • Decision Mathematics – algorithms, networks and critical path analysis.

Further Study: Mathematics works well in conjunction with any other subject. Likewise, universities regard an A-level qualification in Mathematics very highly. For many science based courses it is a requirement or a strongly recommended A-level.

Exam Board: Edexcel

Course Requirements: Conceptually this subject has one of the biggest jumps from GCSE, many will find this course a challenge without a top GCSE grade. As a result an A/A* grade is expected.
