Further Mathematics – AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School

Course description

For those students with a deeper interest in mathematics, Further Mathematics A

Level is a course that broadens the maths covered in A Level Mathematics. It develops

mathematical ability and problem solving skills whilst introducing new topics, such as

matrices and complex numbers, which are vital for maths-rich degrees in areas such as

sciences, engineering, statistics and computing, as well as mathematics itself. A Level

Further Mathematics is studied alongside the A Level Mathematics course and will help

to boost performance in Mathematics.



Future opportunities

Studying Further Mathematics gives students applying for maths-rich courses an

advantage and provides excellent preparation for courses in Mathematics, Engineering

and Theoretical Physics, in addition to other higher education courses. In fact some

prestigious university degrees courses now require a Further Mathematics qualification

to at least AS Level.

Mathematicians, in an ever more technological world, have the ability to analyse, abstract

and model situations and studying Further Mathematics is therefore seen as a real asset

for a range of career choices.
