Maths — A Level

Course information

Mathematics is a universal part of human culture. It is the tool and language of commerce, engineering and other sciences. It helps us recognise patterns and to understand the world around us. The generic nature of mathematics means that almost all industries require mathematicians.
• Mathematics A level students and graduates are in high demand by employers.
• Maths is the essential transferable component across all science, engineering, technology and maths subjects.
• Currently 59% of employers state they are having difficulty recruiting people with Mathematics skills.
• Those with maths A level earn on average around 10% more than those without.
This programme delivered by dedicated tutors at The City of Liverpool College gives you a solid grounding in Mathematics and the course consists of several modules including:
Core 1 and Core 2 which are Pure Maths modules and then you will have a choice of either Mechanics or Statistics for your Applied Maths module.
If you study Physics you are advised to take Mechanics as your Applied module as a great deal of the content overlaps. Also you will develop excellent skills in the manipulation of formula which will support the study of all of the Sciences.
Psychology and Sociology can also be greatly supported by this course.
