Further Mathematics A Level at The Knights Templar School

Course description

If you study Further Mathematics you will study Mathematics A-level and Further Mathematics A-level together. Students cover the subject in greater depth than in 'single' Mathematics so this is a course for those with a strong interest in Mathematics.

Many students take this course simply because they enjoy Mathematics for its own sake, whilst others who might want to study Mathematics, Physics or Engineering at degree level find a stronger mathematical background helpful. Many other areas of study (e.g. Economics, Computing, etc.) also have a more mathematical side.

Although some of the ideas in the course are more challenging than those in single Mathematics, it is the somewhat faster pace of the double Mathematics course which makes it more demanding. However it can be extremely rewarding for the student who enjoys Mathematics.

Students taking Further Mathematics will sit 12 different teaching modules altogether and will be awarded both A level Mathematics and A level Further Mathematics grades at the end of the course.

Entry requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade C or above, including English, for a full level 3 programme. A student wishing to study Further Mathematics is expected to achieve a Grade A* at GCSE Mathematics and to have been in Set 1.
