## Frequently Asked Questions About the UK Linear A-Level Maths

From September 2017, A Level Maths content will now be examined in the form of three exams at the end of the two year course (or two exams at the end of one year for students who opt to study the one year “AS Level” option). How these exams are structured, however, depends on the exam board, but more on this later. Our materials are a work in progress and designed to cover all of the A Level Maths specifications across all exam boards.

### Are your A-Level Maths tutorial videos relevant to my exam board?

Yes! In the current A-Level Maths syllabus, all exam boards are required to teach the same content (something which has never been a requirements in the past) so you can be sure that all of our content is relevant to your studies. There are some very minor differences between how the content is examined between exam boards, but to reiterate, the content is broadly the same.

### How will I be examined?

The A-Level Maths has started being taught in schools and colleges from September 2017. As a result, there have been a number of significant changes to the syllabus and to the way the A-Level Maths course is now examined. Firstly, the new A-Level Maths is described as being a “linear” course. This refers to the fact that the course is examined at the end of the course, as opposed to the outgoing “modular” course in which the course was examined throughout the two years (one year for AS Level Maths) that the A-Level Maths course runs.

There are four exam boards that will be running the new A-Level Maths: AQA, Edexcel, OCR and OCR (MEI). In a big step forward, for the first time ever the content taught in A-Level Maths across all of the exam boards will be exactly the same. It is only how the material is examined that will differ. The following table gives information about the exam format for each of the exam boards.

### Does my AS exam result contribute to my final A-Level grade?

No. AS Maths is a stand-alone qualification completely separate from the A-Level qualification and does not contribute to the final A-Level grade.
