Key Stage 5 - Mathematics Statistics
The Edexcel A level (9371)
Mathematics qualification is designed as a two year course. All pupils study a
set of Core modules, covering Pure Mathematics.
At the start of Year 12, pupils
begin their units of application. Here at Mesaieed International School, we
offer one route which includes Core 1 and Core 2 plus Statistics 1 in Year 12 followed by Core 3 and Core 4 plus Mechanics 1 in Year 13. No other combination
of application units is offered or allowed.
AS and A level are extremely demanding courses and require complete dedication
towards the subject. Pupils are expected to develop and demonstrate an in-depth
understanding of the concepts and processes being covered. Many pupils who
consider themselves to be numerate initially find Mathematics AS level to be
difficult. It is only by complete immersion that a pupil may begin to grasp the
level of understanding required, if one wishes to be successful in this
Summary of Unit content

statistics; representation and summary of data; probability; correlation and
regression; discrete random variables; discrete distributions; the Normal
models in mechanics; vectors in mechanics; kinematics of a particle
moving in a straight line; statics of a particle; moments.
METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
Each unit is assessed by a 1½
