Our students have a choice of taking either the AS or A Level exam. The AS program of study is for one year (Year 12) and our students will take Pure Mathematics 1 (P1) and Mechanics 1 (M1). The A Level program of study is for two years (Years 12 and 13 combined) and our students will take four papers, which are Pure Mathematics 1(p1), Mechanics 1(M1), Pure Mathematics 3 (P3) and Probability and Statics 1 (S1).
