Further Mathematics A Level at The Judd School
The Further Mathematics A level will allow more breadth to your study, as well as increasing your appreciation for the beauty that lies deeply in the Pure branches of Mathematics, including complex numbers and differential equations. This specification will contain some options for the content covered which could allow for the study of further Mechanics, Statistics, Discrete or Pure Maths.
Success at A level requires the development of a logical and rigorously analytical mind coupled with sheer determination. It should be noted that a substantial ‘jump’ is required in algebraic manipulation skills following on from GCSE, hence you should feel reasonably confident in this area. Do not be led into embarking on this course unless you feel totally committed to it. Having said this, a good number of students gain considerable satisfaction from the subject and achieve very impressive results.
Many advanced and technical subjects at University require a good Mathematics A level result and some require some element of Further Mathematics as well. It is worth checking if your intended course requires Further Mathematics before choosing your A level options.
