- Course Information
Further Maths A Level is not just for those who want to go on and study Maths at University. Anyone who enjoys Maths and thinks they might wish to study a Maths related degree at university should seriously consider the advantages of having an A Level inFurther Maths.
The Further Maths programme produces exceptional results. Most recently 82% of our students achieved a grade A* or A in their Maths A Level and 38% achieved an A* grade in their Further Maths A Level.
To complement the class-taught mathematics you will also have the opportunity to study additional material covering advanced mathematical concepts. This will further support and prepare you for your chosen degree course as well as developing the skills of independent, self-motivated study which are highly valued by universities.
Through our enrichment programme you have the chance to take problem solving to the next level.
You will add elegant techniques to your mathematical skill-set which will also be extremely useful for tackling entrance exams to prestigious universities such as Cambridge, Oxford and Warwick.
As a Further Maths student, you will study a wide variety of different areas of mathematics, including Pure, Mechanics and Statistics. Throughout the first year you will study the core ideas utilised in A Level Maths coupled with elements of Applied Mathematics. This will equip you with the mathematical foundations required to approach the second year Further Maths course with competence and confidence where you will study Further Pure and Further Applied Mathematics. At the end of the two year course you will have achieved an A Level in Mathematics and an A Level in Further Mathematics.
