Course Summary

In A-level Maths you will study pure maths, statistics and mechanics.

 

Entry requirements

You will need at least five GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English Language at grade 5 (C/B) and Maths at grade 7.

Where students have a grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics you will need to pass our own assessment of your algebra skills to ensure these are well developed enough for you to succeed on the course. Decisions will be taken on a student by student basis taking into account a range of factors.

A recent school report will be required which demonstrates a committed attitude to learning.

It is assumed that students enrol to a two year A level programme of study consisting of 3 or more subjects. However students will be expected to demonstrate a commited attitude to learning and make positive progress in their first year of study.

Course Content

In pure maths you will develop your skills in algebra, co-ordinate geometry, sequences and trigonometry and you will be introduced to calculus, exponentials and logarithms.

In statistics you will investigate different kinds of statistical distributions, sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability and hypothesis testing.

In mechanics you will study vectors, forces and motion.

How will I be assessed?

Your progress will be monitored throughout the year.

Formal assessment is by examination in May/June of Year 2.

There is no coursework.

 

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

We will ask you to buy our favoured calculator.

What can I do after this course?

Maths goes well with many other subject combinations and is well regarded across employment sectors and higher education institutions.

You could consider careers in areas such as:

  • Engineering
  • Applied technologies
  • Architecture and design
  • Accountancy, business and finance
  • Sciences

A high grade in Mathematics is often required if you wish to study Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture or Economics at university.  It is also useful for any degree in Science subjects, Finance or Computer Science.  Some of our students also go on to study Mathematical Education.

Aiming for a career in financial services

Aiming for a career in financial services, Yikai Shen chose to study A-levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Business at Derby College before continuing his education at Imperial College, London.

A British education is recognised throughout the world as the best. My biggest challenge at College was obviously the language but I worked hard and gained a lot of support from tutors at the College. Derby is a very nice city and I settled in well. I made a lot of good friends and everyone was very welcoming
