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
