Description

Is AS level Maths Hard?

As the name suggests, advanced subsidiary (AS) level maths, expands beyond the basic concepts of maths and into more complex or "advanced" areas of mathematics. If the thought of this seems a little daunting to you, you're not alone. There are many students across the UK that are put off by the complex sounding maths problems and terms like simultaneous equations, algebraic expressions, and more.

From the outside looking in, AS level maths can seem like a hard course of study, but if you have a firm grasp of the basics and you paid attention in secondary school maths, you should be well equipped to tackle even the trickiest of problems within this course.

Even if you struggled in year 10 or year 11 maths, you could still earn a good grade within AS level maths. All it would take is some organization, studying and an effective revision tool like StudyPug.

Our platform has a vast collection of video tutorials and revision guides for each topic of AS level maths. Our content will walk you through all the relevant topics that are bound to come up during your course of study, providing AS level maths step-by-step with videos on the following:

  • Simultaneous Equations
  • Differentiation
  • Circle Theorems
  • Operations with Surds
  • Law of Indices
  • Binomial Expansion
  • And more.

If you want to familiarize yourself with the topics you studied in secondary school before you take on an A level course, we have an extensive collection of materials for revision in trigonometry, statistics, integration vectors, and all other topic studied across the GCSE curriculum.

Our AS level Maths tutoring service will show you easy to understand solutions to even the hardest AS level maths questions. Furthermore, the information that we deliver, reflects everything you'd expect to find in modern maths textbooks and covers the content most likely to appear on your AQA, Edexcel, MEI, WJEC or OCR maths exams.

We understand that each student will have their own unique learning style and not every student will come to us at the same skill level. That's why we offer an "AS level maths for dummies" approach that starts with the basics and assumes no prior knowledge. The beauty of our on-demand video service is in is flexibility. You don't need to sit through lessons you already know. You can skip them entirely or simply fast-forward to the section you need.

If you join StudyPug today as a subscriber, you'll have direct access to all of our GCSE and AS level maths help, giving you unprecedented access to a wealth of quality videos and resources that can supplement your studies and help you find your way to the right maths solutions.

What is AS level Maths Like?

A level maths is separated into two variants. An AS Level maths course is one year long, whereas the A level Maths course, is a 2 year program with the AS acting as its first year.

Within the structure of the course, students are given a choice as to what modules they study. The modules are as follows:

  • C1-4 - Core Maths
  • S1 & S2 - Statistics
  • M1 & M2 - Mechanics
  • D1 & D2 - Decisions

Regardless of whether you're studying AS or A level maths, you will be required to study the C1-4 modules. AS students then pick one further module to study (statistics, mechanics, or decisions) and A level students, will pick two.

As an example, nrich.maths.org has drafted what a typical AS student studying statistics might encounter on their course (see below).

    This website saved my butt last semester. I am using it againthis semester. Dennis is the best online tutor... I also like that I can watch videos over and over until I really understand the concept. If you want to save time, sign up...it's only ten bucks and it saved me hours of study time. Thanks, Dennis!

  • Aaron M.
    high school student

    I get a whole library of videos that covers everything from basic to complex mathematics for a very low monthly price. Excellent videos, easy-to-understand and most of all they work. My math test results are 10 points higher than last semester.
