Further Mathematics

A Level


Further Mathematics is an additional A Level qualification taken in addition to the Mathematics A level.


This is a highly challenging and highly regarded course.  This qualification both broadens and deepens the mathematics covered in AS/A level Mathematics and, for someone who enjoys mathematics, it provides a challenge and a chance to explore new and/or more sophisticated mathematical concepts.


Studying Further Mathematics is excellent preparation for University, especially if you wish to study Mathematics related subjects eg Engineering, Computing.


The course


For the AS course students study 3 applied units in statistics and mechanics.  For the A2 course students study an applied unit in decision mathematics and 2 Further Pure mathematics units.

The topics covered build on each other lesson by lesson.  Students must therefore show real commitment to the course with regard to attendance and completion of work.


What qualifications do I need?


To study Further Mathematics you will need at least a grade 8/9 at GCSE

“I have always enjoyed the challenge of working things out and so A Level mathematics was a natural choice.  The course expands the breadth and variety of mathematical topics which have previously been studied.  I am hoping it will help to lead me to a highly Mathematical Natural Sciences course at University.”


“Maths is a great A Level qualification.”


"I cannot imagine not studying Further Maths.  It really is an enjoyable class."
