Further Mathematics at The Sixth Form College Colchester
Further Mathematics is an excellent course for very strong maths students who are hoping to go on to a competitve degree course with significant mathematical content such as physics, engineering or mathematics itself. Students study pure mathematics, mechanics and statistics to a greater depth than those studying the A level Mathematics course alone and may have the opportunity to look at decision mathematics, a third applied area of the subject. Further mathematics students study the course in additoin to mathematics.
A grade A* (or grades 8 or 9) in GCSE Mathematics is the normal requirement for those taking AS Further Mathematics.
Students who achieve a grade A (or 7), but would still like to take the course, may sit a tet at Enrolment. The test will check whether students' mastery of the more demanding algebra and trigonometry elements of the GCSE syllabus is sufficiently strong to cope with the demands of AS Further Mathematics.
