  • What does the course involve

    Students with a very keen interest in Mathematics will really enjoy this course which extends and deepens knowledge and understanding beyond the standard A Level Mathematics specification. It introduces new topics, such as matrices and complex numbers, which are vital in many Maths related degrees. It extends the applied topics by studying the algorithms which underpin modern technology as well as developing more advanced mechanics.

  • How is the course assessed

    The course is assessed by external exams at the end of the two years.

  • Additional Notes

    Students who study the double option of Maths and Further Maths typically progress to university studying Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or Medicine.

  • Further Information

    Support is provided to prepare for admission tests for competitive entry courses in Maths such as STEP as well as practice interviews for Oxford and Cambridge applications. Each year some students will attend summer schools for Maths at university.

A Level Further Mathematics (Mathematics, Physics and German)
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School

Studying here has given me an even greater love of Maths because of the fantastic Maths department. The teachers are brilliant and I have access to all the resources I need. I got the opportunity to take part in the British Maths Olympiad and that really helped with my application to University. I am going to study Maths at St Johns College, Oxford University and I aspire to do academic research after that.
