A-Level Statistics

UPDATED 20170202 14:17:00

What is Statistics? Statistics is not only an application of Mathematics, but is a growing field of study in its own right. More and more areas of our lives are influenced by Statistics and knowing just how they fit into other studies must be an advantage. Statistics is used in everything from deciding how much orange juice Tesco will buy next year to whether or not a new drug will indeed cure a serious illness. It is said that no-one can now expect to get through their working life without some contact with computers; the same is rapidly becoming true of Statistics. What will I study? A Level Statistics builds upon the Statistics and Probability components of GCSE Mathematics and teaches students how to make sense of data trends and to solve statistical problems in a variety of contexts, such as Psychology, Biology, Geography, Business and the Social Sciences. It prepares students for further study and employment in a wide range of disciplines which use statistical analysis and reasoning with data. The topics include data analysis, probability, data distributions, hypothesis testing and regression analysis.
