AS Maths (first year of A-Level Mathematics)

AS Maths is the name we give to the first year of A-Level Mathematics. The ‘AS’ stands for ‘Advanced Subsidiary’.  Students can study for 1 year and take exams to get a qualification in AS-Level Mathematics. Alternatively, they may go on to study a second year of A-Level Mathematics known as A2 Maths (see info on A2 Maths). Students just sitting AS-Level Maths exams will take two exams at the end of the one year.
