Further Maths AS/A2 Level at The Bulmershe School

Course description

Further Maths is not necessarily "harder" maths, but rather "more" maths, on top of the 6 modules covered in the Maths course itself. Study of Further Maths will enable you to develop your mathematical skills as outlined in the Mathematics course, but across a much broader range of disciplines.

Course content

•Further Pure 1

•Statistics 1

•Decision 2

A2 Level Modules

•Mechanics 2

•Mechanics 3

Entry requirements

Students are required to achieve a minimum of a grade A at GCSE.


Assessments are all exam-based, with the AS exams taken at the end of Year 12 and the A2 exams taken at the end of Year 13.

Future opportunities

Although most universities will accept students who have achieved a high grade in their Mathematics A-Level to read Mathematics, students who opt to study Further Mathematics have a distinct advantage at the start of the degree course.

Any students who have aspirations to read Mathematics at Oxford or Cambridge, or at any of the Russell group of universities, should take Further Mathematics to A2 Level.

It is important that you research the requirements set by each university maths course provider in advance of making your A-Level choices since some courses may expect you to have studied both.

A-Levels in both Maths and Further Maths will prepare you very well for any Maths or Engineering based degree.
