International AS and A-level Mathematics (9660)

Woman at desk

This qualification has a strong emphasis on pure mathematics to equip students for undergraduate study.

The syllabus is informed by consultation with subject specialists from the best UK universities – confirming that a pure maths emphasis at A-level provides the best platform to a maths-related course at undergraduate level.

International AS and A-level Mathematics (9660)

Unit P1: Pure Maths (AS)

Unit PSM1: Pure Maths, Statistics and Mechanics (AS)

Unit P2: Pure Maths (A2)
