A Level Further Mathematics involves further and deeper study of mathematics and its applications and is taken in addition to Mathematics A Level. It provides a thorough preparation for further mathematical study. Students should be confident in experimenting with and applying their mathematical knowledge. Students are prepared for A Level Mathematics in Year 12 and then for A Level Further Mathematics in Year 13.
Further Mathematics is assessed by 4 equally weighted papers of duration 1 hour 30 minutes of which 2 are compulsory.
|Complex numbers||Polar coordinates|
|Further algebra & functions||Differential equations|
Those who qualify in Further Mathematics are in the fortunate position of having a wide range of career and degree choices. In the past, students who have taken Further Mathematics A Level have, as a consequence, achieved good grades in A Level Mathematics and secured places at first rate universities to study Mathematics, Medicine, Economics, Engineering and the Sciences.
