Angle is a measure of the amount of turn in the same way as a length is the measure of the amount of distance.

At GCSE, we measure angles in degrees. There are two sub-units to a degree. There are 60 minutes in one degree and there are 60 seconds in one minute.

In a complete turn, there are 360 degrees. There are also 21,600 minutes in a complete turn and 1,296,000 seconds in a complete turn.

At A level and beyond, you will measure angles in radians. There are 2 PI radians in a complete turn (or circle).
