Grade 7 in GCSE Maths
Why Choose Maths?
Maths provides you with skills that are extremely useful in any career. They range from analytical thinking, problem solving, investigating problems and presenting solutions logically, handling and interpreting data, forming and communicating ideas.
Maths is a highly credible qualiﬁcation. However, the choice of this subject for A-level should also be because you enjoy Maths and you gain pleasure from the challenge of solving number and logic puzzles. There is much emphasis on problem solving, reasoning and modelling, and a requirement for the efficient use of a calculator.
What is Involved?
There are three written examinations, which will take place at the end of Year 13. All papers are two hours in length and consist of two pure mathematics papers and one paper which will examine both statistics and mechanics. These mathematical skills are extremely useful for many careers such as business, engineering, medicine and insurance.
A-level Maths requires sound algebraic and trigonometrical skills, with the course building up to concepts such as integration, differentiation, vectors, logarithms and exponentials, proof, coordinate geometry and numerical methods, which are examined over the two pure maths papers. The ﬁnal paper examines the work studied on statistical methods such as statistical sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability, statistical distributions and hypothesis testing. It also examines the work studied on the mechanics used in kinematics, forces and Newton’s laws and moments.

A-Level Religious Studies study day to Cambridge University
The Religious Studies department took a group of Year 12 students to Cambridge University to attend an A Level Religious Studies Study Day at the Faculty of Divinity. The guest speaker, Libby Ahluwalia, is a teacher, a syllabus developer, an examiner trainer and author of several acclaimed GCSE and A level textbooks. The event provided advice and support for students with an interest in theology, religion, and philosophy of religion who may be considering studying these subjects at university, particularly being beneficial for students aiming for high (A/A*) grades.
