At KS5 there are a number of pathways that students follow. AS and A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics are studied as well as Functional Skills and GCSE resists were appropriate.
Homework at A level is usually weekly and is frequently based on past papers many of which can be found on the AQA website. AQA is the exam board that we follow.
Other homework and revision resources may be found on Integral maths. Students have their own individual logins for this site.
This qualification is designed to support post-16 learners with the mathematical and statistical needs of their further study of other subjects, as well as for employment and everyday life.
The needs of learners preparing for a variety of technical and professional roles are met through learning about mathematical modelling, costing, risk and the use of spreadsheets. Financial problem solving is a part of the qualification; this is important for all learners, irrespective of their future ambitions. This qualification gives learners the mathematical skills to tackle problems in a variety of authentic situations. It enables learners to strengthen the mathematical knowledge and skills which they have learnt at GCSE so that they can apply them to the problems which they will encounter in further study, life and employment.
Students studying this course are provided with a textbook which includes codes for a website called mymaths. This means that if you want to make sure you have all the requisite skills for the core maths activities you can use mymaths to prepare.
Below is a sample paper with preliminary material and mark scheme. The preliminary material you receive before the exam and you will look at it in lessons with your teacher. The file at the bottom of the list is the formula sheet you are allowed to refer to in the exam.
