A Level Further Mathematics at St Peter's Catholic School
Further Mathematics is an AS/A Level qualification which both broadens and deepens the mathematics covered in AS/A Level Mathematics. Any student planning to take a mathematics-rich degree (this covers a very wide range of academic areas - Engineering, Sciences, Computing, Finance/Economics, etc., as well as Mathematics itself) will benefit enormously from taking Further Mathematics, at least to AS Level. Some prestigious university courses will only accept students with Further Mathematics qualifications! Further Mathematics qualifications are strongly welcomed on any maths-related course and often receive preferential offers because of this.
