Edexcel Advanced GCE in A Level Mathematics


 

Overview of the Course


A-Level Mathematics is a two year course.

It is not compulsory for a student to have Pure Mathematics in O Levels to take Mathematics as a subject in A Levels.

There are only three combinations permissible for AS Mathematics:
C1, C2 and one of M1 or S1 or D1.

There are only six combinations permissible for A level Mathematics:
C1-C4 with one of (M1, M2) or (S1, S2) or (D1, D2) or (M1, S1) or (S1, D1) or (M1, D1).

In InCIS we are offering:

C1, C2 and S1 or M1 in the AS Level
And C3, C4 and M1 or S1 in the A2 Level.


AS Level New Syllabus

It is not compulsory for a student to have Pure Mathematics in O Levels to take Mathematics as a subject in A Levels. It is a two year course. In the first year the AS level is covered that consists of the units C1, C2 and S1. The entire AS syllabus is covered at least three months before the AS Level Exams. After that 10 years question paper is solved before several Mock Tests are taken and moderated to ensure the candidate is fully prepared for the exams.

The following text books are followed for the AS Level:
Core Mathematics 1
Core Mathematics 2
Statistics 1 by Greg Attwood, Gill Dyer and Gordon Skipworth

The following topics are covered in C1:
1. Algebra and Functions
2. Coordinate Geometry in the (x,y) Plane
3. Sequences and Series
4. Differentiation
5. Integration

The following topics are covered in C2:
1. Algebra and Functions
2. Coordinate Geometry in the (x,y) Plane
3. Sequences and Series
4. Trigonometry
5. Exponentials and Logarithms
6. Differentiation
7. Integration

The following topics are covered in S1:

1. Mathematical Modeling in Probability and Statistics
2. Representation of Sample Data
3. Methods for Summarizing Sample Data (location)
4. Methods for Summarizing Data (dispersion)
5. Probability
6. Correlation
