There is no coursework. There are 3 module examinations during the AS year. Statistics 1, Core 1 and Core 2 will be examined in June of Year 12. Core 3 and Decision 1 will be examined in January of Year 13 and Core 4 will be examined in June of Year 13. There is also an opportunity to re-sit modules to improve marks.
This qualification is well respected by employers and universities due to its academic rigour. It will be of use for any job or course involving Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Engineering, Accountancy, Computer Science, Geography, Medicine, Design, Architecture, Biological Sciences etc.
Depending upon the number of students and their ability, it is usually possible to offer Further Mathematics at AS Level during the course of the two years. This would involve studying three additional modules, starting with the Mechanics 1 module after school in Year 12. This is followed in Year 13 by the Further Pure 1 module and one other module to be negotiated with the class.
