A2 Maths (second year of A-Level Maths)

A2 Maths is the name we give to the second year of A-Level Mathematics. For the full A-Level in Maths, students must study for two full years and take exams in the summer at the end of Year 2. Students also have the option to get a qualification in AS Maths for which they will only study for one year (see more on AS Maths). However, there are more exams and they are more advanced in content and difficulty when studying both the AS and A2 Maths years.
