This course may appeal to students who wish to pursue the study of a numerate post-16 subject but do not wish to study A Level Mathematics. It would also appeal to those who enjoyed statistics at GCSE and would like to develop their knowledge further. 


Statistics A Level aims to help students develop the skills of statistical enquiry, and practise the underpinning statistical calculations and interpretation using real-world data and authentic contexts.

Topics include the study of numerical measures, correlation and regression, sampling, interpretation of data and probability distributions, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing.

The assessment structure consists of three papers of equal duration and weighting sat at the end of the two year course. One paper covers data and probability, another covers statistical inference, and the third paper covers the whole specification. 

How will it be delivered?

A combination of classroom study, self study and enrichment activities.

Entry requirements

GCSE Mathematics grade 6 or above. GCSE Statistics is not essential but is an advantage.

Your next steps...
