Further Mathematics AS at Sir George Monoux College

Course description

If you're good at Maths and particularly enjoy studying it, you can take this course alongside your AS or A2 in Maths.

Course content

In the first year you will simply study more topics than students doing Maths as a single subject; it is not significantly harder. It means that almost 50% of your timetable will be spent doing Mathematics. If you take Further Mathematics A Level then you will need to complete twelve modules altogether (six for Mathematics A Level and six for Further Mathematics). If you take Further Mathematics AS then you will need to complete nine modules (six for Mathematics A Level and three for Further Mathematics AS). In Maths and Further Maths AS you will study C1, C2, M1, S1, FP1, and D1. At present we offer AS Further Maths to both first and second year students.

Assessment

Assessment is by 1.5 hr modular exams in June.

Future opportunities

Maths and Further Maths at A2 will put you in an excellent position if you wish to study Maths or a subject with a very high mathematical content at university. An increasing number of university Mathematics courses ask for Further Maths AS at least. With Maths and Further Maths at A Level an enormous number of career choices are available to you from Business to Engineering to Finance to Teaching. You will be in demand!
