Course description

Awarding Body: Edexcel

All students study Further Pure Mathematics topics such as imaginary numbers, use of matrices, polar coordinates and differential equations extending their knowledge from the A level Mathematics content. There is no doubt that Further Maths is more challenging than Maths A Level.

Other subjects that may be studied are a continuation of Mechanics and Statistics from the A Level Mathematics course or Decision Maths. This means that students have an increased breadth of experience of Pure and Applied Maths compared to those students taking just Maths.

Further Maths is a completely separate qualification but is reliant on the thorough understanding of A Level Maths.

Entry requirements
