Program Description

A Level Statistical Mathematics Course

UK Open College

This distance learning A level Maths course builds on work covered in GCSE Maths at Higher Level, so you need to be familiar with all the mathematics at this level, and your skills should be at least up to GCSE Grade B standard. If you have not studied maths for some time, it would be advisable to brush up your skills by revising some of the Higher Level GCSE topics. One way to do this is on the BBC website "GCSE Bitesize" which provides an interactive revision programme. This course is designed for students working at home. The topics are presented in small "chunks" with worked examples followed by activities for the student. Revision tests are provided after every three or four sections, and there is a Test Paper at the end of each module, which is a mock exam, so you should revise the content of the module before you do the Test Paper.

You will need a graphics calculator, but you will also need to be skilled in manipulating numbers without using a calculator. In particular, no calculator is allowed in the exam for the first module, and the work in this module is built around working out answers without a calculator.

Duration

Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 700. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.We would encourage students to serioulsy consider how they plan to complete their chosen course prior to enrolment. Students should think about how they are going to study, where they are going to study and how often. Be realistic!

Speak to family members and help them to understand what you are trying to acheive, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likely you are to get them on your side. Students are reminded that the time in which they complete is purely down to them as an individual.

Completion can be as quickly or as slowly as you wish within the tuition period. If you require additional time an extension may be available. Extensions are arranged at an additional cost as and when needed.
