Parents & Employers

Mathematics is the only A-level subject which offers two A Level qualifications – Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Further Mathematics is an AS/A Level course and is designed to be learnt alongside Maths in Year 12, but can be taken as an AS Level in Year 13. The full A Level in Further Maths is made up of 5 modules including pure and applied topics.

Further Maths qualifications are highly regarded and are warmly welcomed by universities and develop many transferable skills sought by employers.  More information can be found on our drop down tabs about what Further Maths is, its benefits, how it is studied and HE and Careers opportunities. You can read our Parents’ Leaflet here.
