Parts of Further maths are genuinely more challenging than A Level, so students who wish to start the Further Mathematics courses are expected to have at least a grade 7 in Mathematics at GCSE.

There are 4 exams of 1 ½ hours. Two exams in Pure Mathematics and the other two depending on which strands (see above) have been covered.

Further Maths is essential for any student wishing to study maths at University and very desirable for degrees in Physics and Engineering. It’s not too early to do some research into degree courses!
