## Course overview

A Level Maths teaches you advanced principles and stretches your understanding considerably more than GCSE level learning.

You will develop the ability to construct and present mathematical arguments using data such as diagrams, graphics and precise statements. This will also enhance your problem-solving and analytical skills.

Throughout the course, you will study a total of 22 units. ### A Level Pathways

If you are interested in proceeding with A Levels then then you have 4 different pathways that you can choose from. With each pathway you must choose 3 A Levels. Other combinations are available. For information about these pathways click here.
