What is AEA?

First examined in June 2002, the AEA in Mathematics aims to challenge able candidates and help differentiate between the most able candidates.

The AEA in Mathematics is accessible to all able mathematics students, whatever the specification they are studying. The examination is based on the specification for A level Mathematics and so it is not necessary to teach any additional content to prepare a student for AEA mathematics.

The support provided by the FMSP focuses on students developing deeper problem-solving skills based on the content they already know. Examples of materials used on the online AEA course can be found in the resources section - STEP and AEA resources.

Edexcel AEA Mathematics has now been extended until 2017.
