Mathematics A-Level is a qualification for students who wish to study Mathematics to a higher level or to support other mathematically heavy courses such as Physics, Engineering or Economics. It is of great use to students who study the social sciences. It is a qualification valued highly by employers.

· There will be three exam papers.
· Two thirds of the content will be pure mathematics.
· One third of the content will be Applied Mathematics (Statistics AND Mechanics)
· The content to be studied is exactly the same across all exam boards, each choose how to organise this into their final examinations.
