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

Method Of Study

Paper Based Version

The course comes to you as a paper-based pack delivered by courier

You will be given guidance through the Study Guide on the nuts and bolts of studying and submitting assignments

Postal assignments cannot be accepted without prior permission from the tutor

Online Version

Our online A-Level courses are fully digitised versions of the paper-courses, so you can study on any PC or smart device when connected to the internet.

As with the paper course, your online learning programme is completely flexible, so you can study at a pace that suits you.

All of our online course content is broken down into bite size chunks to make your learning more manageable and effective.

Method of Assessment

The course contains a number of assignments which your tutor will mark and give you valuable feedback on. We call these Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs). You need only send the TMAs to your tutor for comment, not the self-assessment exercises which are also part of the course to help you gauge your progress.

Exams are taken at an AQA centre and we can provide an extensive list of centres for you. Please read our FAQs for further information

Course Length Information

Our A Levels come with tutor support for up to 24 months and for this course support expires in June 2018 due to syllabus changes brought in by the Government.

Tutor Support

You will have access to a tutor, via email, who will mark your work and guide you through the course to help you be ready for your examinations. In addition you will be supplied with a comprehensive Study Guide which will help you through the study and assessment process.

A Level Chemistry

Chemistry is a subject that can be applied across a number of fields, from medicine to engineering. It is an exciting and wide ranging subject with real world applications that students can relate to. An A Level in chemistry can open up a world of science, and act as a pathway to higher education and future employment in a interesting and important industry. 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.

A Level Classical Civilisation

In this home study course from UK Distance Learning and Publishing, you will learn about some of the fascinating features of classical civilisation and how they have contributed to the world we live in today. Through the study of classical sources, you will learn about the society and values of the classical societies of ancient Greece and Rome.  This distance learning course in A-Level Classical Civilisation allows students to study at home and online, providing much greater access to a subject rarely offered at comprehensive schools or sixth form colleges. The OCR A-level in Classical Civilisation is an ideal complement to many other A-Levels and it can provide a useful basis for those wishing to study related subjects (such as Classics, Ancient History or Archaeology) at university level. Alternatively, it is also an engaging and deeply absorbing subject worthy of study in its own right, and interested students will find studying Classical Civilisation to be both intellectually stimulating and rewarding.

A Level Physics

Physics is one of the most challenging A Level courses we offer. You will study the most fundamental principles of the universe, and the scientific methods needed in order to understand and interpret them. Physics is a highly respected subject, and is looked favourably upon by universities and employers, primarily because of its difficulty, but also because of the scope of its potential application. This AQA syllabus takes in a wide variety of theoretical and applied physics, from engineering, medical physics and advanced electronics all the way through to astrophysics and particle theory. This breadth makes A Level physics a valuable qualification for many different kinds of student, from the highly academic to the more practically focused.
