A Levels

A Level Maths

The subject content for both A level Mathematics and AS level Mathematics is 100% prescribed by the Department for Education All students will be assessed on their knowledge of Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Statistics. Decision mathematics will no longer be an option at A Level Maths. The assessment objectives include a greater emphasis on modelling, problem-solving and reasoning, so some questions are likely to be longer with less scaffolding. This builds on the increase in problem-solving in GCSE Maths so students will be better prepared.
