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.
