Pilot Use of Mathematics (9360)

We are not developing a new A-level Pilot Use of Mathematics qualification due to government changes to A-levels.

This is our outgoing A-level specification, available for re-sits only.

The last exams for students taking the current qualification will be in the June 2018 series, with a final re-sit opportunity in June 2019.

As an alternative, you may like to consider our new Level 3 Certificate in Mathematical Studies, or our new AS Maths and A-level in Maths, which have been developed for first teaching in September 2017.

Find out more about these changes and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future. You can also contact the customer support team on the details shown below.

This qualification is a restricted pilot. Please contact the subject department if you would like more information about joining the pilot.

The AQA Pilot Use of Mathematics A-level was designed to widen participation in studying Maths beyond GCSE. Built upon AQA's pilot Free-Standing Maths Qualifications (FSMQs) at level 3, this qualification gives students valuable skills for their lives post-education, whilst supporting their studies in other subjects, for example Social Sciences, Geography, Psychology and Sciences.

The Pilot Use of Mathematics A-level is ideal for students who want to:

  • pursue practical and relevant Maths courses to the same level as traditional A-level Maths
  • solve realistic and open-ended problems
  • demonstrate skills in mathematical communication
  • explore mathematical techniques through investigation and application.
