Course Overview

A Level Maths (with Statistics) consists of 6 modules:

AS Level
Module 1  MPC1,  Module 2  MPC2,  Module 3  MS1B

A2 Level
Module 4  MPC3,   Module 5  MPC4,  Module 6  MS2B

Each module has 1 Written paper of 1 hour 30 minutes.
There is no coursework.

A student who passes all three AS level modules achieves the qualification AS Mathematics.

Passes in the 3 A2 level modules are then required to achieve the qualification A level Mathematics.

Course Summary
This A level course builds on work covered in GCSE Maths at Higher Level, so you need to be familiar with all the mathematics at this level, and your skills should be at least up to GCSE Grade B standard.  If you have not studied maths for some time, it would be advisable to brush up your skills by revising some of the Higher Level GCSE topics.  One way to do this is on the BBC website "GCSE Bitesize" which provides an interactive revision programme.

This course is designed for students working at home.  The topics are presented in small "chunks" with worked examples followed by activities for the student.  Revision tests are provided after every three or four sections, and there is a Test Paper at the end of each module, which is a mock exam, so you should revise the content of the module before you do the Test Paper.

You will need a graphics calculator, but you will also need to be skilled in manipulating numbers without using a calculator.  In particular, no calculator is allowed in the exam for the first module, and the work in this module is built around working out answers without a calculator.

This course is self-contained; you can learn everything you need by working through the materials provided.  But if you want to read the same content elsewhere, the best resource is the series of books written especially for the AQA Specification.  These are published by Oxford University Press, and the series title is "Advanced Maths for AQA".  The books relevant to this course are:

Core Maths C1 + C2, Core Maths C3 + C4, Statistics S1 and Statistics S2. 

On this course you work at your own pace.  Each module exam can be taken in January or May/June of each year.   So you will need to do some forward planning to work out when you will be ready to take the exams, and you will need to register your exam entries at least three months before the exam period. All administrative details, including exam timetables, can be found on the AQA website.

Examination Centres
The course provider provides expertise support and advice for students in their studies through their comprehensive course packs and tutoring system.
However, we do stress that it is the studentís responsibility to find a centre to register and take their exams with. We are aware that sometimes this is difficult or even impossible to arrange.

Now we have come to an arrangement with centres in Birmingham, Bristol and Harrogate so please contact them directly for fees and a timetable.

We realise this may still involve a good deal of travelling for some students but the long-term benefits of being able to gain A Levels far outweigh the short-term expense and inconvenience.

Basic English and maths reading and writing skills are required.

Pre-requisites
To take this A Level with UK Open Learning it is recommended that you should have a GCSE grade B at Higher level.

Qualification
AS +A2 = A level in Mathematics. Both AS and A2 level courses and examinations must be successfully completed to gain a full A level.

Language of Examination

Examination Centres
The course provider will provide you with a list of examination centres but it is entirely your responsibility to find a centre which will accept you as an external candidate.

Please visit AQA for exam information.

In some cases you should be prepared to travel to another town or city to take your exams.

The contract for sitting exams is between you and the centre  and we will provide you with comprehensive instructions on when and how to deal with the examination centre.
