Course Description

Do you need an A Level within 12 months to get into University?

We offer a range of A Levels where we guarantee to prioritise the marking of your coursework so you are fully ready to take your exams in June of each year.

WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR THIS SERVICE.

An Advanced Level in Pure Maths is a perfect qualification for those wishing to acquire knowledge and understanding of the subject to enable them to study at a higher level at university. It also provides a progression route for further training whilst in employment.

The specification aims to encourage candidates to:

- Develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment
- Develop abilities to reason logically and to recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs
- Extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult unstructured problems
- Develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected
- Recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between real world problems and standard and other mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved
- Use mathematics as an effective means of communication
- Acquire the skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, to recognise when such use may be inappropriate and to be aware of limitations
- Develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general
- Take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development

Previous Knowledge

You need to be familiar with all the mathematics at this level, and your skills should be at least up to Grade B standard. If you have not studied maths for some time, it would be advisable to brush up your skills by revising some of the Higher Level GCSE topics. One way to do this is on the BBC website "GCSE Bitesize" which provides an interactive revision programme.
