International Baccalaureate Mathematics All students taking the IB are expected to Mathematics as part of the programme. As with the other subjects, a maximum of 7 marks are available. There are three levels that a student may enter: Mathematics HL – This is the higher level and very demanding and should only be taken by students who intend to study subjects in higher education that have a high level of mathematical content. Examples of courses would include Mathematics, Engineering and the Sciences. It is roughly as challenging as Further Mathematics A level. Mathematics SL – This is the standard level of entry and is roughly equivalent in content to Mathematics A level. 20% of the final examination is project work. Mathematical Studies SL – This course is worth the same points as Mathematics SL but the content allows students to work at a more reasonable pace. It is suited to students who do not intend to use mathematics in higher education. It is roughly equivalent to the level of difficulty in AS level Mathematics. 20% of the final examination is project work.
