Further Mathematics - AS / A level at Ipswich School

Course description

For more than two thousand years, mathematics has played a part in the human search for understanding and this continues today.  Whether it be modelling air flow for aeroplanes, developing supercomputers, analysing the impact of population growth, constructing sports stadiums or finding voting trends in politics - mathematics is everywhere and continues to be fresh, relevant and impossible to ignore.

Course content

The ‘Double Maths’ student takes all six modules in Year 12 and a further six in Year 13 where some flexibility in topic areas is often possible.

Entry requirements

Students who wish to study Mathematics at AS or A level will preferably have an A grade or higher at GCSE entry, or an equivalent qualification.  Further Mathematicians should be individuals of proven mathematical prowess.

Future opportunities

Maths A level is highly regarded by universities for a broad spectrum of disciplines and should certainly be considered by students with aspirations to study Medicine, Pharmacology, Finance, Computing, Economics, Accounting or Architecture to name but a few. Further Mathematics would benefit those students with an interest in studying Maths, Engineering and Physics at university.

In general, though, it should be noted that Mathematics is an extremely marketable A level regardless of a students' future career direction, and should not be seen as a subject exclusively for those individuals with a leaning towards the sciences.
