If you enjoy mathematics you should consider studying both A-Level Mathematics and A-Level Further Mathematics. To study a course in Further Mathematics, you need to have at least a grade 7 in GCSE Mathematics.
To study Further Mathematics A-Level you must also study Mathematics A-Level as some of the course content is dependent on what you would study in the Mathematics A-Level.
In addition to the topics you study in A-Level Mathematics you will have the opportunity to study some topics you met at GCSE in more depth and meet some new topics including complex numbers and matrices.
Further Maths may be taken as a fourth A-Level subject by suitable candidates, it is the only subject which can be taken as a fourth A-Level. It can be cashed in as an AS Level after one year or continued for two years in order to obtain the full A-Level.
You will need GCSE Maths at grade 7 (grade 8 preferred), in addition to the general entry criteria.
