Mathematics A Level
The Alevel Mathematics course is a twoyear program and consists of both pure and applied mathematics. Pupils will do twothirds of the course in pure mathematics and the remainder split between statistics and mechanics. There are no longer any options at ALevel.
ALevel
The ALevel course runs over two years and is examined at the end of Yr13.
ALevel Maths (Edexcel)  Assessment Overview  
Pure 1  2 hours, 100 marks 33.3% 
Any pure maths content can be assessed on either paper 
Pure 2  2 hours, 100 marks 33.3% 

Mechanics/Statistics  2 hours, 100 marks 33.3% 
Section A: Statistics (50 marks) Section B: Mechanics (50 marks) 
The Alevel Further Mathematics course is a twoyear course and runs alongside the Alevel mathematics course. Pupils studying Further Mathematics will also have to study Mathematics. The Further Mathematics contains a large proportion of pure mathematics and also provides students with a choice of options in applied or more pure mathematics.
Further Mathematics ALevel
Further maths students will sit both Maths and Further Maths, at the end of Yr13.

For our Further Mathematics students, there is also an opportunity to participate in the UK Maths Challenge and the Team Maths Challenge.
In 2018, we achieved 7 gold certificates, with 2 pupils advancing to the British Olympiad round.
Our Senior Maths Challenge Team are regional champions and will be competing in the national finals in February 2019.
EXAMINATION BOARD EDEXCEL (London Examinations)
ASSESSMENT
Every module is assessed by a one and a half hour written paper  three modules for an AS; another three for an Alevel and a total of twelve modules for Further Mathematics.
WHERE IT LEADS
Alevel Mathematics is essential for entry to a Sciences degree, with Physics and/or Chemistry and Computer Science. It is strongly recommended for degrees in Medicine, Engineering, Economics and Business Studies, Architecture, Psychology, Veterinary Science and Accountancy.
Mathematics is also now regarded as a very useful subsidiary in many degree courses, together with Modern Languages, Humanities, Biology and Sports Science.
ENTRY GUIDELINES
It is highly recommended that students following an A2 Level or AS Level Mathematics course have succeeded in the GCSE Higher tier, with a B grade at the very least; an A or A* grade is, however, recommended. Algebraic skills are vital for success at Alevel.
