Overview

Students enjoy its challenge, its clarity, and the satisfaction of solving problems.

The Maths A level course gives students the essential tools required to study and understand abstract ideas in a wide range of contexts. Alongside Pure Mathematics, you will also study Mechanics, building on Newtonian ideas of motion and forces, and Statistics, which enables you to analyse and interpret the real world through data analysis. 

  • Maths is a facilitating subject for Maths and Science based degree courses.
  • Assessed through examinations at the end of two years (no coursework).
  • Maths is good training for the mind, helping to develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills; the kind of analytical processes that have helped solve problems of all kinds for thousands of years.
  • A focus on the abstract, linking algebra with geometry, including elements of problem-solving and analysis of a large data set.

"I really enjoy the satisfaction of understanding a difficult problem in maths and how different topics can be applied to concepts that you thought were unrelated." ELOISE, Maths student.
