A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English Language and a grade 7 or above in Maths.
Please note that students must also choose A Level Mathematics to study alongside Further Mathematics. Consequently it is recommended that Further Maths is part of a four A Level programme at the College.
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.
The course is assessed by external exams at the end of the two years.
Students who study the double option of Maths and Further Maths typically progress to university studying Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or Medicine.
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 Mathematics (Further Mathematics and Economics)
Previous Institution: Belvidere School
I enjoyed Maths at GCSE and found it to be both a challenging and rewarding subject, so I wanted to continue that at A Level. After College, I want to go to university to study Maths or Economics. I also study Further Maths alongside and that really improves my mathematical proficiency and helps with my Maths A Level.
