Mathematics - Further Maths - A Level at Baxter College

Course description

Further Mathematics can be taken at either AS level or A2. Students will also need to be studying A level Mathematics. 

Students who have gone on to study Mathematics, Physics or Engineering at university have found this course particularly invaluable. Students have also found that by studying Further Mathematics they improved their attainment in the main Mathematics A level. 

The AS units go `wider` rather than harder than the Mathematics A level and students will be able to study new areas of Mathematics such as complex numbers and Decision Maths. The Pure units of the A2 course are harder but well within the grasp of an able mathematics student and an excellent preparation for a mathematical or scientific course or career. 

Content Units of Study

Some units are compulsory but other can be chosen to suit the students` interests or strengths where possible.


Although not essential for following a Mathematics, Engineering or Scientific degree or career, Further Mathematics makes these courses much more accessible and increases your likelihood of a successful transfer to higher education, particularly at one of the more `demanding` universities.

Entry requirements

Students should preferably have gained a grade A at Maths GCSE, and have good algebra skills.
