Why study Further Mathematics?
Students hoping to follow a university course in mathematics or any mathematically related subject should seriously consider taking Further
Mathematics. Some universities are now making this a requirement for entry on to their mathematics courses. Studying mathematics to a higher level will prove hugely beneficial in any case, even if it is not a requirement. Further Mathematics students are able to experience all the applied branches of mathematics.
What will I study?
Students complete all the pure modules required for the full mathematics A Level in Year 12, along with three of the applied modules. In Year 13, students study the further pure mathematics modules and the remaining two applied modules.
How will I be assessed?
There is no coursework in Further Mathematics. Assessment is by 90 minute examinations taken in June.
You must have studied mathematics at the higher GCSE Level. An A grade would normally be seen as a minimum requirement, and the ability to achieve an A* would be preferred.
