Description/Abstract

In this article a comparison is undertaken of the examination performance of mathematics under-graduates with respect to the style of A-level taken. In particular, groups taking modular A-levels have been compared in several respects with those sitting the non-modular version. For the most recent year of entry the modular group performed better by and large, reversing the pattern of the previous two years' entries. Female students perform better in almost all respects.
