    Further Mathematics

    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 an A2 in Mathematics in Year 12 and then for A2 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.

    The compulsory content covers:

    Proof                                                                                                     Further vectors

    Complex numbers                                                                                Polar coordinates

    Matrices                                                                                               Hyperbolic functions

    Further algebra & functions                                                                 Differential equations

    Further calculus

    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.
