This course will develop your mathematical skills beyond GCSE. Maths is vital in the modern world and is increasingly important in a wide range of careers. It sits well alongside three other A Levels that includes any mathematical content. It is equivalent to an AS Level, but with a greater emphasis on applications rather than abstract mathematical techniques. Note: this is a one year course only and not available as a full A Level.

Overview

This Level 3 Certificate in Maths (with Statistics) course will develop your mathematical skills beyond GCSE. Maths is vital in the modern world and is increasingly important in a wide range of careers. It would sit very well alongside a programme of three A Levels in courses including psychology, geography, business studies, or other humanities and social science subjects.

This course is ideal if you enjoy using Maths where you can see how it is applied, rather than doing abstract algebra, and if you want to strengthen your Maths for your other subjects.

It will be assessed at Level 3 and the content is equivalent to an AS Level, but with a greater emphasis on applications rather than abstract mathematical techniques. Note this is a one-year course only with no equivalent of a Year 2.

What topics will I study?

You will:

  • Learn to apply maths to address problems and questions in the real world
  • Develop the skills to represent or model situations mathematically
  • Use maths and statistics to make logical and reasoned arguments in a variety of contexts

This course goes well with any course with some mathematical content such as Environmental Science or other Sciences, Economics, Psychology, Geography, Business Studies or other Humanities or Social Science subjects. Contact us to discuss your options.

Next steps: You can go on to further study, training or employment with stronger Maths skills. The transferable skills of numeracy, mathematical modelling and problem solving skills are highly desirable. It is particularly valuable to prepare you for any degree course or career where data analysis, statistics (for example in social science research) or logical problem solving is required.
