Maths Course Overview
Maths A level and BTEC Extended Diploma
For students who are interested in studying maths at the highest level, we offer an academically rigorous A level course. We follow the Edexcel A level course which is 100% exam based and is tested at the end of year 12 and the end of year 13. The course covers the core maths modules covering a range of coordinate geometry, algebra and functions, trigonometry and calculus along with two modules in statistics over the two years. The course is highly regarded by universities and offers students a chance to balance out their CV with an academic gold standard.
Maths Level 3 and BTEC Extended Diploma (studied alongside Level 3 English)
Students on the L3 pathway study for a level 3 qualification in Quantitative reasoning (MEI). This course is examined at the end of year 13 and is equivalent to an AS offering the same number of UCAS points and graded on the same scale. The course is specifically designed to support students in the development of the numeracy skills they need to work in the music industry. As well as developing concrete skills students are aiming to increase their mathematical literacy enabling them to interpret, analyse and discuss quantitative data.
