What will I study?
Further Mathematics is an additional A Level qualification taken in addition to the Mathematics A level. A level Mathematics is studied in Year 12 and Further Mathematics in Year 13.
This is a highly challenging and highly regarded course. This qualification both broadens and deepens the mathematics covered in 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.
Students study Pure Mathematics as well as the applied units, Further Statistics and Further Mechanics.
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 can I do with it?
Studying Further Mathematics is excellent preparation for University, especially if you wish to study Mathematics related subjects eg Engineering, Computing.
What other students say
“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.”
"I cannot imagine not studying Further Maths. It really is an enjoyable class."
