At A-Level students embark on a journey linking their prior learning at GCSE and higher level mathematics. Throughout the course students will simultaneously study the pure and applied units, following a carefully tailored scheme of study. Pure mathematics covers the underlying concepts and structures of mathematics, whereas the applied units in both mechanics and statistics allow the students to appreciate mathematics in a more contextualised manner making links to the real world.
How will students be assessed for A-Level Mathematics?
Examination board: Edexcel
Students will be assessed by completing three written papers:
Paper 1 – Pure Mathematics (2 hours)
Paper 2 – Pure Mathematics (2 hours)
Paper 3 – Statistics and Mechanics (2 hours)
Each paper has a total of 100 marks
All students are encouraged to use graphical calculators in order to integrate technology in their learning to support their learning allowing them to obtain a visual perspective of the graphical elements of the course. Students will also be encouraged to take advantage of the KS5 Revision Hub which includes revision material, past papers, useful revision links and much more to enhance their independent revision.
