A-Level Further Maths
A-Level Mathematics is often a prerequisite for entry into higher education courses such as medicine, accountancy, and STEM.
Students follow a two-year Further Mathematics course running parallel to their A Level Mathematics studies; the course is 100% exam based. Students must complete two core units across Y12 and Y13, and must study two additional, optional units from Statistics, Mechanics and Decision. To be successful in this subject, students must invest considerable time revising and practising outside of lessons.
A good A-Level result and either an AS or full A-Level in Further Mathematics, will be necessary for students to access degree courses offered by Russell Group universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, University College London and Imperial College, to name only a few.
Degrees in Pure Mathematics can lead into a variety of careers, as students studying this degree are highly sought after for their wide range of problem solving skills.
Students need to have achieved a minimum of 6 grades 5-9 incl. English and Maths and should be aiming to achieve ideally a level 8 in their Maths GCSE.
