Edexcel AS and A level Statistics (2017)

Statistics for the real world

Read more

Our assessment structure at A level is straightforward, with three papers of equal size and weighting: one paper on data and probability, another on statistical inference, and a third paper on the whole specification, helping students to focus their studies and revision. At AS there are two papers of equal size and weighting: both papers assess the full range of the specification.

Increased pressure on teaching time means that it’s important you can cover the content of different specifications together. Co-teaching AS and A Level provides this flexibility for you and your students. Centres co-teaching AS and A Level can deliver the first ten topics in the first year, allowing students to be entered for the AS at the end of year.

Our exam papers follow the same clear design that you’ve told us makes them so accessible, with careful ramping also ensuring a range of challenge to support students of all abilities in achieving their potential.

Our qualifications will help students to develop the skills of statistical enquiry, and practise the underpinning statistical calculations and interpretation using real-world data and authentic contexts. Our approach supports skills development for progression to a range of other subjects and develops an awareness of statistics beyond the classroom.

Change is easier with the right support, so we’ll be on hand to give you any support and advice you need on how to understand and implement the changes. Whether it’s through our Launch, Getting Ready to Teach and Collaborative Network events, or via the renowned Maths Emporium led by our in-house maths expert Graham Cumming, we’ll be available face to face, online and over the phone throughout the lifetime of the qualification. We’ll also provide you with all the usual free materials, such as schemes of work, mapping documents and exemplar answers.
