Further Maths can only be studied in addition to A level Maths. It is a demanding course that requires a capacity for abstract reasoning as well as very strong algebraic skills. However, it is highly rewarding for those who choose to pursue it.
In Further Maths, half of the course is compulsory with the additional topics selected from Further Pure modules, Mechanics, Statistics or Decision Maths. For AS Further Maths girls will sit two papers – one compulsory Pure Maths and the other comprising their two chosen areas of study- and for A level Further Maths girls will sit four papers – two compulsory Pure Maths and one on each of their chosen areas of study.
