AS/A level Further Maths at Landau Forte Academy Tamworth Sixth Form

Course description

Are you looking for a challenge? Have you generally found Mathematics straightforward? Do you find solving complex problems enjoyable? If you are answering yes to these questions and are excited by the thought of studying harder Mathematics, then an A level in Further Mathematics is the course for you.

Aims of the course

A qualification in Further Mathematics involves studying a range of both pure and applied modules. The course involves an extension of the topics studied in the standard A level course as well as the opportunity to discover completely new areas of Mathematics.

Programme of Study

The course enables you to follow a variety of mathematical topics and these aggregate either towards AS Further Mathematics or A2 Further Mathematics.


AS level Further Mathematics requires three modules to be successfully completed. These are Further Pure 1 and two applied modules.


A2 level Further Mathematics requires six modules to be successfully completed. These are Further Pure 1 and 2 and four applied modules.

Who is the course aimed at?

The course is taken alongside A level Mathematics and suits those who have enjoyed and excelled at GCSE Mathematics. Students aiming to pursue Higher Education courses in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering other degrees with a high level of mathematical content should seriously consider this course. Oxford and Cambridge and a few other very selective universities rarely accept students for degrees in Mathematics or Physics without a Further Mathematics qualification.

Further Mathematics is commonly expressed as the most challenging A level offered in the UK, mainly as it is the only subject to currently offer an extra AS or A level which furthers the study of a particular subject.
