Further Mathematics - AS Level at Hanley Castle High School
These courses require commitment and hard work from the outset. Homework and assignments will be given on a regular basis, and high standards in the quality of work and in meeting deadlines will be expected. The most difficult aspect that students encounter centres around algebraic manipulation. Once this has been mastered, their confidence increases substantially, as does their level of success in the subject in general.
An ideal candidate has at least a grade 6 at Higher Tier GCSE Maths. A minimum of grade 7 for Further Maths.
All Mathematics and Engineering Courses and most Science courses require A level Mathematics. Most university courses in non-linguistic subjects now include one or two modules in Statistics, for which the S1 unit can help to provide a sound basis. Some non-mathematical technical subjects (eg Computing/Business Studies) will also require one or two mathematical modules (extending beyond GCSE Higher Tier) for which Pure Maths can also help to provide a useful basis.
