Further Mathematics

This double A Level course is for students who truly love mathematics and want the challenge of studying a broader and deeper range of topics.

In addition to work in pure mathematics, applications of the subject to mechanics, statistics and decision mathematics are studied to provide a wide-ranging and inspiring course.

Students who may go on to study mathematics, engineering or physics at university would find Further Mathematics very useful, particularly if they want to apply to a higher tariff university.


Career opportunities are many and varied: accountancy, actuarial work, architecture, astronomy, banking, building societies, computing, economics, engineering, hospital administration, insurance, market research, quantity surveying, and teaching.
