Core Maths



This course is ideal for you if you will be studying A levels with a significant mathematical component, including physics, chemistry, biology or geography but choose not to study A Level Mathematics. It is equivalent to an AS Level and will attract UCAS points and support applications to university.

The content is designed to help you with the mathematical elements of science-based A-Levels whilst teaching practical real-life applications of mathematics. For example, the course includes the understanding of personal finance and how to calculate income tax.
