Further Mathematics AS/A Level at The Commonweal School

Course description

A-level Further Mathematics is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills developed when studying A-level Mathematics. It may be studied alongside A-level Mathematics and provides a stimulating experience for those who enjoy the subject. It builds upon the A-Level subject content and takes students into the world of complex numbers and some of the topics studied at degree level.

For students wishing to study Mathematics at degree level, many of the top universities express a preference for students to take Further Maths as well as Maths and will often demand higher grades from students who have not. We would advise students who may want to study Maths or Engineering in particular to consider the entry requirements from the universities and to discuss with us the option of Further Maths.
