The course will develop your maths skills to a very high level. Through the first year, a lot of the work will build upon some topics that you have already studied at GCSE, particularly higher level algebra such as solving quadratics and simultaneous equations.
The AS Level course is assessed in three modular exams – Core 1, Core2 and Applied 1. At A2 Level, there are two more modular – Core 3, Core 4 and another Applied 1. The applied components can include Mechanics and Statistics.
Through classroom sessions, using traditional methods of learning combined with the use of ipads, graphical calculators and software packages that all enhance the classroom experience. Students are expected to complete a number of hours of independent study themselves.
