Mathematics

For abstract thinkers fascinated by the study of numbers, quantities and space and driven by a desire to understand patterns and even formulate new conjectures, Mathematics courses are a good choice. Focusing on logical reasoning and rigorous arguments, Mathematics courses will require students to substantiate their ideas and theories with solid foundations in logic. Mathematics courses will challenge students to think creatively and abstractly, yet stay within the bounds of patterns that are either observable in our natural world, or based on proven laws.

Pure mathematics is the most abstract form that Mathematics courses will present, dealing with different types of numbers, structures, abstract spatial calculations and calculus. Many students enroll in Mathematics courses to enhance their capacity and understanding of a more specific field that is heavily dependent on mathematics. For example, Economics, Finance, most natural sciences, Engineering, Medicine and the social sciences require students to have some education in applied Mathematics courses.

If you are interested in holding specialized mathematical knowledge necessary to your field, or understanding abstract concepts like differential equations, order theory, complex numbers or game theory, then the Mathematics courses listed below may be just what you have been looking for.

A Level Course

Abacus College & Oxford Language Centre
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom Oxford

Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. [+]

A Level Course Excellent results from 2014's A-Level students... 23% obtained A* or A grades and 73% A* to C! Why Choose an A Level course? In most countries, students have a general school education and only start to specialise in the subjects of their choice when they enter university. This is one reason why many students choose to come to the UK to join an A Level course, which allows them to choose the three or four subjects in which they are really interested and learn about these subjects in depth. Universities appreciate this knowledge and students who take an A Level course may apply to any university in the UK. How to make your subject choice Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. Decide if the subjects you are considering will suit your strengths, such as essay-writing or working with numbers. Look at the requirements for the career you hope to enter and the university course you will take to reach this career objective. For example, if you want to study medicine at university you will need to take Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. If you want to become an Engineer you will need to take Mathematics and Physics. For Economics and some Business degree courses you will probably be asked for A Level Mathematics. Help in making the right choice In Abacus College we will advise you if you are having any difficulty in deciding which course or which subjects you should take. You may like help in deciding whether a University Foundation Programme or an A Level course is the better way to prepare yourself for entering a university. If you have already chosen an A Level course you may not be certain which are the right subjects for you. If you would like to discuss your future education, we shall be very happy to help you either by phone at +44 (0)1865 240111 or by email at info@abacuscollege.co.uk. A Level course duration Two Year Course Students who have just completed GCSE, IGCSE or an overseas equivalent would normally enrol on the two year A Level course which starts in September. Other students entering this course may have just completed an English language course, in Abacus College’s partner language school Oxford Language Centre or elsewhere. All students are helped, at the start of the first year, to understand the language and terminology of the subjects they are studying. They will then complete the work for the AS examinations, which are taken in May/June. In the second year of the course students study towards the A2 examinations and may also be given the opportunity of improving the marks obtained in the AS examinations, if necessary. Five Term Course This is a shortened version of the two-year course. It starts in January and students prepare for the AS examinations in May/June. The second year is a full year, from September to June, at the end of which the A2 examinations are taken. The five-term course will be a good idea for students who need a term of intensive English first in Oxford Language Centre from September to December in order to obtain the necessary IELTS score for entry to A Level. One Year Intensive Course If you have already taken an A Level course and wish to improve your grades you may enrol for this course. If you have excellent secondary school qualifications and are prepared to commit fully to hard work, or if you are a mature student needing to shorten your study time, this course may be suitable. The AS Level material will be covered for the January examination session and the A2 examinations will be taken in June. Retakes One term, two term or one-year retake courses are available for both the AS Level and the A2 Level examinations. Students should contact the college for details. Subjects Abacus College specialises in preparing students for examinations in the following subjects: Business: Accounting; Business Studies; Economics Law & Social Science: Government & Politics; History; Law; Sociology Science & Mathematics: Biology; Chemistry; Computing; Mathematics; Further Mathematics; Physics; Psychology; Statistics Languages: French; German; Italian; Spanish; Russian; Mandarin A Level Examination Boards AQA (Assessment and Qualifications Alliance) EDEXCEL (London Examinations) OCR (Oxford & Cambridge RSA Examinations) [-]
