About this course

This distance learning course provides the information you will need to prepare for the AQA A-Level in Maths with Statistics. In this home study course, you will focus on four core topics of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, which make up two-thirds of the A-Level qualification. The remaining third is focused on the study of statistics, including estimation, probability and distributions. The course is optimized for students studying at home and includes full tutor support via email.

A-Level Maths with Statistics is a valuable complement to other A-Level courses with a statistical element, such as biology, sociology or psychology, and for those wishing to study these subjects at a higher level. A-Level Maths with Statistics is also applicable to many jobs and careers and is a well-respected qualification that can be used for career progression and further training whilst in employment.

Course Description

Entry requirements

English reading and writing skills, and maths to at least GCSE grade C or equivalent are required. You will need to have general skills and knowledge base associated with a GCSE course or equivalent standard.

This specification is designed to:

  • develop the student's understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment
  • develop abilities to reason logically and to recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs
  • extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult unstructured problems
  • use mathematics as an effective means of communication
  • acquire the skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, to recognise when such use may be inappropriate and to be aware of limitations
  • develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general

A Level Philosophy

This distance learning course in A-Level Philosophy offers students a comprehensive introduction to key philosophical themes and approaches. It is a varied course, providing detailed explanations of philosophical concepts and methods and is ideal for students studying from home. In this course, you will study fundemental philosophical problems, such as the philosophy of mind and the nature of God. You will also undertake in-depth studies of philosophers like Descartes and Kant. Philosophy is a fascinating subject that rewards careful study. It is suitable for the interested general reader and also combines well with other A-Level subjects, such as History, Classical Civilization and Government and Politics.

A Level Sociology

Sociology is a great A Level subject because the knowledge and skills you can learn are often transferable to other areas of study. This course covers some really interesting topics, like crime, cultural identity and the media. But, more importantly, you will learn about the methods used to study these things, like qualitative and quantitative research, data collection and analysis, as well as more general aspects of academic practice. All of these skills are highly sought after in the jobs market, and will also serve you in good stead if you choose to proceed to higher education. NB: Under the new A Level specifications, the AS Level is now a separate qualification, and does not count towards the full A Level. If students still wish to sit the AS exams our course does cover the content. However, we would always advise students to check with their chosen exam centre about the availability of exams.
