Pure Mathematics and Probability & Statistics (AS Level)
Pure 1 (Paper 1)
Probability & Statistics 1 (Paper 5)
Route A: Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Probability & Statistics (A Level
- Pure 3 (Paper 3)
- Mechanics (Paper 4)
The course provides support for revision and exam preparation for the AS Level and the A Level.
Activities and assessments
The course includes the following activities: worked examples and practice exercises on core topics, quizzes and marked assignments. There are also unit discussions to support students with each topic.
The final Cambridge International examination consists of four externally-assessed papers and this is reflected in the course content:
Paper 1—1 hour 50 minutes, 60% AS/30% AL, structured questions on Pure Mathematics 1
Paper 5—1 hour 15 minutes, 40% AS/20% AL, structured questions on Probability & Statistics 1
Paper 3—1 hour 50 minutes, 30% AL, structured questions on Pure Mathematics 3
Paper 4—1 hour 15 minutes, 20% AL, structured questions on Mechanics
