If you are a numerate student and enjoy working with mathematical formulae which produce a useful result, then you should consider joining the A level Statistics course. Graphical calculators are used to work out answers relating to data and probability and it is also important to explain the meaning of what has been found. You’ll study a selection of probability distributions, the collection of data and various hypothesis tests. You’ll find Statistics very useful if you wish to pursue university and career routes that require the ability to work with and interpret numerical and statistical data.
Higher Education Destinations:
- MMU – Computer Science
- The University of Chester – Accounting and Finance (3 year)

Statistics is an excellent choice for students who need the skills and techniques of critical thinking and processing, interpreting and analysing information. These skills will be particularly useful for courses and careers in Biology, Economics, Geography, Psychology and Sociology.
A minimum grade 5 in GCSE Maths is essential.
