# Online Maths A level

### Course information

Our Mathematics A level course combines Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Statistics for a flexible, multidisciplinary approach to the subject. It comprises eight modules: four in Pure Mathematics and two each in Mechanics and Statistics.

In Pure Mathematics, you’ll learn basic and advanced concepts in algebra, polynomials, trigonometry, exponential functions and logarithms, as well as establishing an understanding of vector geometry and parametric equations.

The Statistics modules cover statistical data, probability and binomial distribution, along with Poisson distributions, hypothesis testing and confidence limits.

Modules in Mechanics will introduce you to the mathematics of the physical world, including kinematics and forces, motions of a particle in two and three dimensions, Hooke’s Law and uniform circular motion.

The modules are designed to complement one another, building a solid foundation of theoretical knowledge while demonstrating the practical applications of mathematics in a variety of fields.

Whether you’re interested in pursuing maths academically or want to use it as a building block for a career in the sciences, engineering, computing or business, Mathematics A level will develop and enhance your understanding of this crucial subject.

The course includes 20 tutor-marked assignments, as well as two AS level practice papers and three A level practice papers.

### Examining board and exams

The Mathematics A level course has been developed to prepare you for the AQA Mathematics A level qualification. The specification numbers are:

• AS level-7356
• A level-7357

The AS level component is assessed by two 90-minute exams, while the A level is assessed by three two-hour written exams.

Please note that the AS course may be separately examined and marks from the AS exam are no longer carried forward to the final A level grade. However, it is useful for students to have examination practice, and to assess the progress of their learning and ability.

### What can I do with a Mathematics A level?

Mathematics has been called the gate and the key to the sciences, but in fact it’s useful for even more than that. From architecture and design to business and programming, there’s a huge array of subjects and careers that can be enhanced with strong mathematical skills.

A Mathematics A level is required or strongly advised for many Higher Education courses in the sciences, particularly in physics, biology, engineering and computer science. Subjects like accountancy and finance, economics, statistics and business management will also strongly benefit from the course.

You may also wish to pursue a Higher Education qualification in one of the many branches of mathematics itself – from applied mathematics to numerical analysis. Due to its complementary nature in a wide range of subjects, maths is often taken as part of a combined-course degree, such as Chemistry and Mathematics.

Even if you’re not planning to pursue Higher Education, a Mathematics A level can mark you out to employers as someone who’s capable, bright and hardworking. It’s a useful foundation for careers in:

• Computer programming
• Data analysis
• Insurance
• Entrepreneurship
• Financial services
• Healthcare
• Energy

##### When can I enrol?

You can enrol any time you like, the earlier the better. The important thing to think about is when you wish to sit your exam and to give yourself plenty of time to work through your materials and revise successfully. Our cut-off dates for enrolment can be found here.

Once you have enrolled, you will get access to your course online immediately and your printed course materials will arrive a few days later.

##### Can I complete the Maths A level exam in one year?

Our cut-off for enrolling on an A level Maths course for the following summer examination series is mid-October each year. So yes you can.  However, remember that you will still need to fit around 700 hours of study time into your schedule before the examination.  The earlier you enrol, the less study you must do each week!

##### Can I just enrol on the AS level Maths course?

Yes, you can.  The fee to enrol on the Maths AS course is just £300.  If you decide to upgrade to a full A Level later on then you may do so for an additional fee of £250.

The results from your AS Level exam cannot be carried forward to your A level and you will need to take the full A level exams which test the full spectrum of topics from the AS and A level specification.

##### When will I sit my exam?

The Law A level papers may be sat in the Summer examination series.  The Summer series typically runs from mid-May to late June.

Since 2016 there has not been an autumn examination sitting.

##### How and when do I book an exam?

The final date for booking summer exams with the exam board without incurring late entry fees is the 21st of February. You should book your place at an exam centre well in advance of this date. Start looking once the autumn term begins.

All the information you need to book an exam centre can be found in our Exams Hub. Here you will find

• detailed instructions
• entry codes needed to book exams
• our map of examination centres where our students have sat in recent years.

Tutors & Exams offers discounts to Oxford Home Schooling students and has nine current exam venues across the UK: Belfast, Birmingham, Bolton,  Coventry, Doncaster, High Wycombe, Romford, St Neots, Taunton and Wimbledon.

Pearson Edexcel also publishes a list of exam centres that accept private candidates. This won’t cover every available centre, so if there’s nothing shown in your area, we recommend contacting local schools and colleges directly.

##### How much does a Maths A Level examination cost?

Your exam fees aren’t included in the course cost as they’re paid directly to the exam centre. They will vary depending on which centre you choose.  Generally speaking, dedicated examination services will be more expensive than a local school or college.  Prices range from £150 to £450 pounds.
