Mathematics, A Level

This course can also be studied if you are an adult aged over 19 years old and will help you unlock new career paths and routes into higher education. A Level Mathematics is a sought-after qualification in all industries and demonstrates high levels of understanding, dedication and commitment – attributes valued by employers.

This course will add depth to your GCSE Mathematics knowledge. You will study mathematical processes and learn how to solve complex problems with confidence. The course is two-thirds pure mathematics (algebra, calculus, trigonometry etc) and one-third applied mathematics (statistics and mechanics) and will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to work in exciting roles within industries such as engineering, sciences, finance, or computing.

This course aims to teach the whole of A Level Maths in one year and is taught through our online learning platform. You will watch video lessons at a time to suit you throughout the week and then practice the relevant content to embed your learning. There is also a 90 minute live online session each week where you will discuss topics with your teacher. You should expect to spend 12-18 hours studying each week, depending on your current knowledge and ability to learn new material.

You can message your tutor via Teams if you need support outside of the live session.

Subjects covered

  • Algebraic methods, quadratics, equations
  • Graphs, functions, coordinate geometry and circles
  • Sequences and series, including binomial
  • Trigonometric identities and equations
  • Vectors
  • Calculus
  • Exponentials and logarithms
  • Parametric equations
  • Numerical methods
  • Representing and summarising Data
  • Correlation
  • Probability, distributions, hypothesis testing
  • Kinematics including variable acceleration and projectiles
  • Forces, motion, moments

Assessment method

Throughout the course you will complete self-assessed questions with fully worked solutions, and there will be regular teacher-marked tests and assignments too.

To achieve your qualification, you will sit three two-hour exams (two on pure maths and one on applied maths).

Fees

If you're aged 19+ and don't already have a level 3 qualification, we can offer this course for FREE as part of the National Skills Fund. Contact us today to find out more.

Additional costs

We use the Pearson published series of Edexcel A level Maths textbooks as an integral part of the course and your practice. You will receive free access to online eBook versions, but many students also like to purchase a physical copy. The books are: Pure Year 1 (978-1292183398), Applied Year 1 (978-1292232539), Pure Year 2 (978-1292183404), Applied Year 2 (978-1446944073).

You will also need a calculator which can perform all the necessary functions for A level. We recommend either the Casio fx-991EX or the Casio CG50. Older calculators may not meet the requirements for the new spec A level.

Progression opportunities

Following successful completion of this qualification, you could apply to study a range of subjects at degree-level including physics, engineering, computing, and maths. An A level in Mathematics is an asset to have on your CV outside of these sectors too.
