This is a course for those who have a passion for the subject combined with a proven ability at GCSE level. Successful candidates usually have a very good grade at GCSE (or equivalent) and have often studied Maths beyond the taught GCSE course e.g. Additional Maths (although this is not necessary).
Further Mathematics is a course that is sometimes a requirement by some of the more prestigious universities for Mathematics, Physical Science or Engineering courses.
Students who opt for Further Mathematics will study Mathematics and Further Mathematics alongside two other A level subjects giving a total of four A levels.
Those opting to study Further Mathematics would complete the whole single Mathematics A level course throughout Year 12 and then move on to the Further Mathematics material in Year 13.
