Statistics is used to research, model, understand, analyse and predict data for situations which involve uncertainty or variability.
It can be particularly useful for students who need the research skills and statistical techniques for study or careers related to biology, business studies, economics, geography, geology, psychology and sociology.
The subject is taught in a practical way, with multiple mini experiments, practical activities and opportunities to collect data and investigate real problems and their solutions using different methods of sampling. The course builds on the topic of data handling, the practical applications of correlation and regression, including their application in the world of business. Probability theory is expanded with the introduction of binomial and normal distribution. We also study a variety of different hypothesis tests which many of the students meet in their other A level subjects. This course strongly supports the statistics needed in other subjects at A level and university courses.
Past students have gone on to study a variety of degree courses including medicine, dentistry, geography, geology, biological sciences, sports science, nursing, economics, business studies, sociology and psychology.
GCSE grade 5 in maths.
