Maths AS level is a versatile qualification, well-respected by employers and higher education institutions alike. Mathematical skills and qualifications are highly sought after and therefore generally well-paid – across a diverse range of rewarding and engaging careers.
Written by mathematicians, lecturers and examiners, our high-quality, distance learning materials will enable you to develop excellent numeracy skills and gain a sound ability to interpret and process data sets.
You’ll also learn to be resilient and to think creatively and strategically, as you develop strong mathematical knowledge that enables you to write structured solutions, prove and justify your results to formulate reasoned arguments.

“I have taught maths for many years in a college of further education and more recently by distance learning. As a teacher the greatest reward for me is helping a student develop confidence and the same enjoyment in subject as me. My approach to teaching has always been to treat each student as an individual with unique needs, and I always try to give whatever support they require. I have a BSc in Maths from the Open University (so I know firsthand the pros and cons of distance learning) and a PGCE.”
*The specification suggests that 150 hours is needed. You’ll also need time to complete assignments and prepare yourself for exams and some courses like English literature involve a lot of reading. Everyone is different so it’s impossible to say with certainty how long a course will take you, but you should expect to spend longer than 150 hours. Taken across the length of time we recommend, this equates to approximately 4 hours per week. This will increase if you choose to take it over a shorter time frame or may be less if you are retaking a subject and have covered a lot of of the course content.
