Mathematics is one of the oldest and most respected areas of academia, it provides a logical way to express the fundamentals of the world we see; some say it's beautiful.

A-level Maths (or A-level Mathematics if you prefer) is also one of the top respected qualifications for university entry and is considered a facilitating subject. It enables you to demonstrate an ability of logical thinking and reasoning that all universities will respect. One of our most popular A-levels, this course covers a range of topics, from trigonometry to statistics, forces to algebra, with tutor assignments to help you reach your goals.

We know exams and assessments can feel overwhelming. Your personal tutor will be on hand to help you prepare and put you in the best possible position to achieve the grade you want. Everyone is different, so we're here to support you in the way that best suits your learning style.  

An ideal course for those looking to pursue careers in the sciences, engineering or computing, our A-level Maths course can be studied online, in your own time and at your own pace. With a pass rate of 97%, we are experts in providing distance learning courses to help you progress into the career you want.

Take your skills one step further by taking a broader look at mathematical principles with our A-level Further Maths course. These courses are required to be studied together, make a saving by bundling the two together when you enrol!

Studying A-level Maths online can open career paths.

What you'll learn

Unit 1 - Pure mathematics

In the opening unit, you’ll study the types of mathematical proof, algebra and functions and delve into co-ordinate geometry. You’ll also take a look at exponentials and logarithms, along with some real-life situations that can be modelled exponentially.

Unit 2 - Pure mathematics 2

In the second unit, you’ll kick off by considering binomial expansion by using Pascal’s Triangle. You’ll study trigonometry and trigonometric functions, including sine, cosine and tangent. Moving on, you’ll take a look at differentiation, which is the process used to find the rate of change of one variable with respect to another.

Unit 3 - Mechanics 1

You’ll open the third unit by examining vectors – mathematical quantities that have an associated direction. You’ll then take a look at constant acceleration motion, gaining an understanding of the formulae involved. Next, you’ll explain why motion or acceleration occurs by studying Newton’s first and second laws.

Unit 4 - Statistics 1

Unit four begins with a comprehensive look at populations and sampling, representing data, averages, dispersion, correlation and regression. You’ll move on to solving probability problems and applying them to diagrams such as two-way tables, followed by a close look at the laws of probability. You’ll then examine probability distribution, which refers to how probabilities are spread out across an event and hypothesis tests for binomial distribution.

Unit 5 - Pure mathematics 3

Following on from the topic of mathematical proof in unit one, this unit begins by looking at further proof. You’ll move on to mappings and functions, becoming familiar with the differences between them along with their domains and ranges and also take a look at graph translations. Next, you’ll cover partial fractions and discover how to inverse trigonometric functions of sin, cos and tan, as well as examine addition and double-angle formulas. Lastly, you’ll study series and sequences, including arithmetic and geometric sequences.

Unit 6 - Pure mathematics 4

To kick off unit six, you’ll discover how to find points of inflection on a graph and by differentiating a function. You’ll further explore the rules of differentiation and integration and study parametric equations, in which x and y are combined with another variable. You’ll also study vectors in three dimensions.

Unit 7 - Mechanics 2

In unit seven, you’ll use trigonometry and Pythagoras when considering components of velocity, develop your knowledge of acceleration equations and use differentiation and integration appropriately in mechanics questions. Moving on, you’ll explore forces and equilibrium, Newton’s laws of motion and consider moments in equilibrium.

Unit 8 - Statistics 2

To begin the final unit, you’ll discover how to calculate the equation of a line of regression, understand rank correlation and carry out hypothesis testing. Then, you’ll move on to probability, taking a close look at Venn and Tree Diagrams and learning to calculate the probabilities of events that are conditional.

  • Paper 2: 2 hours, 33.3% of A-level, 100 marks
  • Paper 3: 2 hours, 33.3% of A-level, 100 marks

These exams contain a mix of question styles, from short, single-mark questions to multi-step problems.

During your A-level Maths course, you'll be required to complete various assignments. These do not contribute to your final grade but provide you with an opportunity to submit work to your tutor for marking and feedback. This will help you to monitor your progress and will be used to produce predicted grades if needed.

Entry requirements

There are no specific requirements to study this course. However, it is strongly recommended that you have studied GCSE Maths or an equivalent level beforehand. Learn about combining the two with our GCSE Maths and A-level course bundle here or get in touch with one of our friendly learning advisers if you have any questions.

AS or A2? And what is the difference?

AS Levels are the pre-requisite to an A2 Level, though both are qualifications in their own right. If you studied AS Level Maths at school, you may want to consider going straight into A2 Level.

An AS Level is worth up to 20 UCAS Points, with the top A2 grade being worth 56 UCAS Points. It is recommended that you take AS Level first as A2 Level builds on many of the topics covered in AS in greater detail.

What A-Level courses should I take?

If you’re planning on going on to a degree, your chosen university will usually publish their entry requirements for each course on their website. See how these subjects feel and decide if you would enjoy them as they will form much of the base knowledge for your degree.

If you’re not entirely sure what to study, there are some standard subjects that many students choose to help them secure a place at a prestigious university, such as one of the Russell Group universities. These courses are known as the ‘facilitating courses’ and include Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English Literature, Geography, History, Maths, Further Maths, Modern Languages and Classical Languages.

Generally speaking, taking two facilitating subjects will allow you to keep your progression options open. For further help and guidance, we have written a detailed guide on How to Choose A-Levels.
