The A Level course involves core modules and applied modules. Core modules are where students will learn fundamental principles of mathematics, taking concepts previously learnt at a basic level at GCSE and going into far greater detail, before learning advanced mathematical processes and techniques.
Applied modules involve more “real world” maths, looking at mechanics and statistics. To succeed at A-level, students need to have a sound knowledge of the GCSE syllabus, with most sixth form colleges requiring a grade 6 or 7 as a minimum requirement for entry. Students also need a lot of mathematical resilience, to keep going when things are tough, and need to be independent problem solvers.
How can we help you pass your A-Level Maths?
Due to the sheer amount of topics that need to be covered, students can sometimes be left with a poor understanding of the topics that have been taught in school or college.
Improving understanding by looking at topics in different ways, and finding innovative ways to explain concepts to students is at the heart of our A-Level maths tutoring sessions. We structure our sessions in a way that allows personal development through encouraging problem solving skills and independent thinking.
A-Level exams also expect students to structure their answers in a much more formal way, so we ensure that our A-Level students have access to plenty of past exam questions during their sessions.
