About the course…

Further Maths is a highly challenging and stimulating course for excellent mathematicians who have achieved a grade 7, 8 or 9 in GCSE Maths. This course must be studied alongside A Level Maths. 

Not only will this course improve your performance in A Level Maths, it is also designed to let you study a wide range of further options in pure maths, mechanics, statistics, decision and numerical maths in much more detail. 

This course is more difficult than A Level Maths, so you need to be a very keen mathematician, as well as a highly motivated learner.
