AS Level Maths

Statistical Hypothesis Testing in AS-Level Maths (from Sep 2017):

During the year that students study for an AS-Level in Maths, they will be required to cover the following topic areas in STATISTICAL HYPOTHESIS TESTING:

  • understand and use the terms null & alternate hypotheses, significance level, 1 & 2 tail testing, critical values & regions, p-values, etc.
  • conduct and interpret hypothesis tests for the proportion in a binomial distribution

These topic areas will be tested in the AS Applied Mathematics paper: Statistics & Mechanics – Paper 2.


A Level Maths

Statistical Hypothesis Testing in A-Level Maths (from Sep 2017):

In addition to the above, students studying for an A-Level in Maths will also be required to study the following areas in STATISTICAL HYPOTHESIS TESTING:

  • conduct and interpret hypothesis test for the mean of a normal distribution with a known variance

This is done over 2 years and these additional topic areas will be tested in the A-Level Applied Mathematics paper: Statistics & Mechanics – Paper 2.
