Further Mathematics – A level
If you enjoy Mathematics, and are looking for a challenge and a chance to explore new and/or more sophisticated mathematical concepts, then you may benefit from taking Further Mathematics. This can be a rewarding and stimulating course which enables you to distinguish yourself as an able mathematician in the university and employment market, and it will certainly prepare you for the transition to a Mathematics-related university course.
In addition to the A level Mathematics units, a further three Pure Maths units are studied, plus a further three chosen from Mechanics, Statistics and Decision. There is the option to study Further Mathematics as a three unit AS level or the full six unit A level; both options are available in the second year of your studies and are assessed through examinations.
