A Level Statistics is 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. In between those are; deciding on provision for school places, town planning, quality control in industry and even the ability to understand party political broadcasts!

Statistics is now used so widely that many employers would see a qualification in Statistics as a huge advantage.

What Our Students Say

What I like about Carmel is that they offer a large amount of support, not only in lessons, but with University applications, apprenticeships, work placements and more!

Statistics, which has to be my favourite subject on level with Psychology, is amazing! The teaching styles are interesting and make it easy to understand the applications of the subject itself. Studying Statistics has not only greatly increased my understanding of how to apply my knowledge, but having applied for a Psychology degree, it has had a big influence on my university offers, since statistics forms the framework of basic psychological research methods. One of my UCAS offers has lowered drastically because I study A Level Statistics.

I would highly recommend the course to anyone wishing to go on to do Psychology, or other analytical based subjects, as the teaching is incredible and students get a lot of support. The highlight of my time at Carmel has been the teachers here, not only do they teach well, but they do it with passion and make every lesson enjoyable!
