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.
