If you choose Further Maths you will be studying for two A levels in maths as this would be studied alongside A level maths. This could mean that you spend half your time in College doing maths so you have to really enjoy the subject!
Half of the course will be extra Pure Maths, one quarter will be Decision Maths and one quarter will be extra Statistics.
This could change to extra Mechanics depending on the students who enrol on the course.
Pure Maths: Includes vectors, complex numbers and matrices.
Statistics: Hypothesis testing and goodness of fit tests.
Decision: Using networks and graphs to solve maximising or minimising problems
Assessment is 100% examination based.
There will be three exams.
It is highly recommended if you are considering studying a degree in Maths, Physics, Engineering, Computing or Economics at one of the best universities.
In addition to our Programme Entry Requirements, applicants must also meet specific Course Entry Requirements:
Grade 7 in Maths; GCSE score of 5.5 or above
Several of our Further Maths students have taken part in Saturday Schools at universities.
