Using and understanding data is becoming increasingly important in many areas of study and employment. Understanding of statistics is a crucial skill, and this A Level aims to give students the tools needed to help them prepare for higher education and the workplace. Statistics might appeal to students wishing to pursue the study of a numerate post-16 subject but not wishing to study pure mathematics. It sits well with subjects such as A level Biology, Psychology, Geography, Business Studies and Economics. The emphasis is on using and applying statistics in real world situations. It will also appeal to students who enjoyed the statistics and probability components of the GCSE but found the algebra demanding.
Entry requirements: Grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics. We will give consideration to Grade 5 students, taking into account their overall performance at GCSE. The qualification builds upon the statistics and probability components of GCSE Mathematics
