Because Maths is such a vast subject, it is impossible to cover it all in one A Level. Further Maths develops some of the concepts met in A Level Maths and brings them to a higher plane. It attracts students who thoroughly enjoy the subject and are keen to extend their understanding and knowledge. It will appeal to you if Maths is one of your favourite subjects at school as it gives you the chance to study a wide variety of fascinating topics, including some more demanding and abstract areas of Maths.
September 2017 sees the introduction of a reformed Further Mathematics A Level. You will sit examinations at the end of Year 12. Two of these exams will be compulsory Pure Mathematics modules and the other two will be Applied Mathematics including Mechanics, Decision and Statistics.
Nearly all of our A Level Further Maths students go on to university to study Maths or to study a Maths-related degree subject, such as Physics, Engineering or Computer Science. Further Maths is often listed as a preferred or essential A Level subject by top universities for entry onto these degree courses.
At least two 5s and three 4s at GCSE, including at least a 7 in GCSE Maths.
NOTE: You must be studying A Level Maths in order to study Further Maths.
