Introduction to course
Further Mathematics is a second AS (or A2) in Mathematics which you could consider if you enjoy Mathematics a lot and are good at it.
You must study A Level Mathematics as well to be on this course.
In the first year you will simply study more topics than students doing Maths as a single subject; it is not significantly harder. It means that almost 50% of your timetable will be spent doing Mathematics.
If you take Further Mathematics A Level then you will need to complete twelve modules altogether (six for Mathematics A Level and six for Further Mathematics).
If you take Further Mathematics AS then you will need to complete nine modules (six for Mathematics A Level and three for Further Mathematics AS).
In Maths & Further Maths AS you will study C1, C2, M1, S1, FP1, and D1.
At present we offer AS Further Maths to both first and second year students.
In addition to the general entry requirements, you are also required to have the following:
Grade A or A* at GCSE Maths.
Additional Maths FSMQ level 3 (at any grade) would be a great advantage to those studying this course, but is not necessary.
