Further Mathematics A Level (OCR) at Marling School
Strong mathematicians can finish with two ‘A’ Levels – one in Mathematics and the other in Further Mathematics. 12 modules are taken altogether over the two years. Further Mathematics students will be taught in a separate group from the single Mathematics students. In Year 12, this option would count as 2 AS level qualifications and so a maximum of 3 other AS level subjects would be needed to make a full timetable for the student – although the two blocks Further Mathematics occupies are not completely used for teaching it. Clearly this ‘double’ qualification is an extremely powerful one for those strong enough mathematically to study it. Although it is rarely a stated requirement for entry to courses in higher education it is highly recommended that students have studied it if they intend to study Mathematics, engineering or certain scientific courses at some universities. Indeed, some students will find themselves at a disadvantage if they apply for such courses without offering Further Mathematics at A2 level. Please see additional details under Mathematics.
