Further Mathematics AS & A Level at Archbishop Tenison's CofE High School
For students wishing to pursue a career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics we would recommend studying Further Mathematics. This course is taught concurrently with A‐level Mathematics and adds breadth to the AS level Mathematics course in Year 12 and depth to the A2 Mathematics course in Year 13. Like the Mathematics A‐level course, there are three modules each year leading to AS level and then to full A‐level in Further Mathematics.
- You will need a grade 6 in Mathematics to study Mathematics and a grade 7 in Mathematics to study Further Mathematics.
- A minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade B (or grade 6 in English and Mathematics) is required to have a free choice of A‐ Level courses. We would anticipate that you would achieve a minimum of GCSE grade 5 in English Language and Mathematics.
- Students will be expected to achieve at least a grade B in the subjects they choose to take and this will be applied rigidly to Mathematics, Further Mathematics, the Sciences and Modern Foreign Languages.
Examining Body: Edexcel
All modules in Mathematics and Further Mathematics are assessed through a 1 hour 30 minute examination. There is no coursework in any of the modules.
Mathematics provides a logical framework from which to view the world. Mathematical thinking is valued in the business and scientific worlds. Algebra provides a language for scientists, economists and others to communicate their theories. The study of mathematics can, therefore, open the door to many opportunities in employment and life in general.
