The Advanced Mathematics Support Programme

The Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP) is delighted to offer Year 13 students access, free of charge, to our Transition to University course designed especially to support students who have studied A level Mathematics and are progressing to an undergraduate degree course in mathematics, engineering, physics or a STEM related subject.

The course will help to consolidate some essential A level Mathematics skills and learn more about topics that will be encountered early in these university programmes. The course also includes suggested wider reading to explore these themes in greater depth.

The Transition to University course covers the following topics from A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics:

  • Trigonometric identities
  • Differentiation
  • Integration
  • Differential equations
  • Matrices
  • Complex numbers
  • Statistical distributions
  • Statistical hypothesis testing
  • Kinematics
