A Level Mathematics offers students with a good understanding of mathematics the chance to study it at a higher level. It provides a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. Techniques covered include algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, which together form the fundamental building-blocks of the subject.

A Level Mathematics will build upon the skills you have learnt at GCSE, will branch out into new areas and also introduce the study of statistics.
