Is your son or daughter planning to study maths at A-level? Will they need to get at least an 'A' in maths to be accepted onto their first choice university course?
The syllabus for CCEA Additional Mathematics GCSE, as taught at Additional Maths Academy includes pure mathematics, mechanics and statistics. It is, according to AMA, the best possible preparation for A-level Maths. However, until now, CCEA Additional Maths GCSE has never been offered in the Greater London area.
“The reason I am so passionate about encouraging young people to study Additional Maths GCSE is that students who do so just seem to connect better with A-level Maths than their peers”, said Lynsey Graham, co-founder of the Additional Maths Academy.
“The statistics speak for themselves: a student who has studied Additional Maths GCSE is 45% * more likely to get an 'A' in A-level Maths. The figure is even higher at AS-level: a student who has studied Additional Maths GCSE is 50%* more likely to get an 'A'. It may only take 2 hours per week for nine months, from September to June, but this course really can have a life-changing impact."
The course is open to students who are either currently studying Maths GCSE or are about to do so. AMA is located in Kensington. To find out more about the AMA Additional Maths GCSE contact:
