Designed to extend your mathematics skills, this course is a natural partner to Edexcel’s A level Mathematics. We have designed it so that it can run alongside your study of A level mathematics or independently, if you already have A level mathematics.

The course is based on the expertise and online resources of MEI (Mathematics Education Innovation) via the Integral website with a carefully structured and guided learning route to help you make the best use of the learning materials to suit your needs.

This course is one of our new Gold Star A levels. Find out more about them here.

You will have tutor support for a period of up to 24 months from the date of enrolment. Many students allow 18-24 months to complete an A level, but some complete the course within a year.
