A Level Mathematics

Mathematics at AS and A2 is a course worth studying, not only as a supporting subject for the physical and social sciences, but in its own right. It is challenging, interesting and highly rewarding. It builds on work you will have met at GCSE, but also involves new ideas produced by some of the greatest minds of the last millennia.

What can this course lead to?

An AS in Mathematics is very valuable as a supporting subject to many courses at A2 and degree level, especially in the Sciences and Geography, Psychology, Sociology and Medical courses. AS & A2 Mathematics were much sought - after qualifications for entry to a wide variety of full - time courses in higher education.

There are also many areas of employment that see A level Mathematics as an important qualification and it is often a requirement for the vocational qualifications related to these areas. Higher Education courses or careers that either require A Level Mathematics or are strongly - related include: Economics, Medicine, Architecture, Engineering, Accountancy, Teaching, Psychology, Physics, Computing and ICT.
