If you are passionate about improving your mathematical ability to the highest level this is the course for you. You will need to spend the full allocation of time given to a complete A Level in order to study Further Maths. Applicants will frequently have gained a Grade 8 or 9 at GCSE, be regular participants in maths challenges and have studied some additional maths at school. This course is usually taken as one of four subjects to ensure that you are still studying broadly.
The Further Mathematics course will consist of pure maths alongside optional topics from mechanics, statistics or discrete mathematics. These will all be examined at the end of the two years but there will be many developmental assessments during the course to allow you to hone your skills. It is possible to convert from this course onto a one year AS further maths qualification if you decide not to continue into the second year and this is enough for many university courses.
Standard A Level entry requirements apply - the minimum requirement is at least four GCSEs at Grade 5, plus English Language at Grade 4. For this course you will need a Grade 8 or above in GCSE Mathematics. You must also be applying for A Level Mathematics.
Many of our students progress onto a university degree in Maths, Science, Engineering, Finance or ICT.
