Course introduction

Mathematics is an important subject that underpins virtually all human endeavours, including: science, technology, business and finance.

As a result, an A Level in Maths provides you with a highly regarded qualification that can support you in further study or employment.

On this course you will have a chance to study both pure and applied maths.

The focus of pure maths is very much on problem solving. Many students enjoy the challenge of solving pure maths problems and the satisfaction of finding a precise solution.

Meanwhile, applied maths will give you a taste for how mathematics is used in understanding and modelling the real world.
