Essential Mathematics (A)
ESSENTIAL MATHEMATICS A
The study of mathematics is not compulsory but it is very important for building the skills for further study, employment and living in the modern world. Having decided to study mathematics, you will need to choose carefully the course which best suits your needs.
If your aim is to study at university and the level of maths that you studied in Year 10 was high enough (for example, successfully studying Mathematics A in Year 10) you should plan to study T Maths (see other flier). If, however, you wish to study maths at a less specialised level, for example, to gain skills for CIT study or employment, then A Maths is the appropriate level.
