A Level Statistics will help students to develop the skills of statistical enquiry and practise statistical calculations and interpretation using real-world data in authentic contexts. The course supports skills development for progression to a range of other subjects and develops an awareness of statistics beyond the classroom.
A Level Statistics will appeal to the students seeking to pursue the study of a numerate post-16 subject, but not wishing to study pure Mathematics. It sits well with subjects such as: Biology, Psychology, Geography, Business Studies & Economics

I have specifically enjoyed doing work on probability; it was where I used my GCSE Maths most and I also learnt how to work out some very interesting things.Tristan Randall ex Varndean School
