Further Mathematics at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

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.

Entry requirements

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.
