Assessment

The AQA A Level Pure Mathematics qualification is gained once all 6 exam papers are successfully completed along with coursework. The first three exams make up the AS Level, the next tree exams comprise the A2 Level and together they form the A Level. These exams are administered by the AQA and assessment centre details will be included with your course, as well as practice papers so that you are more than prepared for your assessments. You will need to contact your local examination centre to work through your coursework requirements.

In addition, there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the course materials, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty, as well as a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them. These are for your own information, and do not need to be shown to your course tutor.

Method of study

Online and Paper Based

The course is primarily an online course using a Learning Management System (LMS).

You can also choose to have a paper version of the course sent to you.

The online course has many features that cannot be printed such as embedded videos, forums and interactive tests.
