- Encourage students to stretch the knowledge they acquired in GCSE by developing their thinking skills (to last for the rest of their academic life and beyond).
- Provide students with the confidence and skills needed to succeed in their future Advanced Maths degree courses at university.
Students should have Grade 4 or higher in GCSE English and Mathematics, or the equivalent grade/mark in their national system of secondary education.
The course is divided in Pure Maths and in Applied Maths (Statistics and Mechanics).
