A good grounding in Mathematics is not only intellectually rewarding, but also often provides the passport to a wide variety of jobs, as well as further work in scientific research.
The A-level Mathematics specifications changed in 2004 and for this reason did not change in September 2008. These specifications remain six module qualifications and are now unlikely to change until 2014 at the earliest.
The full A Level qualification consists of an AS and A2 syllabus and would be split into six modules, reflecting the new four module examination structure of A levels. This particular course is the AS Level only and if you are looking to complete the full A Level then we recommend buying the full A Level course for £350.00 as this can be completed over 2 years of study.
Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study. Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self- assessment questions. There are fifteen Tutor-Marked Assignments (known as TMAs).
This home study course prepares candidates for the AQA Mathematics AS level syllabus 5361, for examination in 2009 and later years. To complete the full A Level candidates would also need to study the AQA Mathematics A2 level syllabus 6361 for examinations in June 2009 and later years.

For any Maths A Level course you will need to have a higher tier GCSE at Grade C or above.
Every student receives a personal tutor with whom they need to keep in regular contact. The essential relationship between student and tutor begins with an introductory letter and a telephone call to help decide on a study plan. All tutors are fully qualified teachers holding either a Postgraduate Certificate in Education or a degree in education. So when you enrol on a course you can be assured of the assistance of a professionally qualified subject specific tutor.
There is no limit on how often you can contact your tutor. The advice and encouragement our tutors provide are an important part of your learning experience. You can contact your tutor by Phone, Post or Email. There are tutor-marked assignments (TMA’s) in every course. These help the student to consolidate their learning and prepare for examinations. All tutors have a local rate telephone number such as a 0845 number. This means that when you phone your tutor it will only cost you the price of a local call. Whilst you are still actively submitting assignments, you should expect to be in contact with your tutor regularly. Remember, to get the most out of your tutor, you will need to tell them when you need assistance.
There are approximately 300 testing centres in the UK, so finding one close by should not be very difficult. In December/January we contact you to start arranging your examination dates.
Registered students can also access a list of exam centres for their postcode area which have been used in the past 12 months by previous students.
We always try to give whatever help we can with examination information, but the entering of Candidates for examinations and any dealings with the examination centre’s are entirely the responsibility of the student.
