Mathematics and Further MathematicsAS/A2 level Mathematics and Further MathematicsMathematicsAn ALevel in Mathematics develops skills in logical thinking and the ability to process information accurately. There are very few degree subjects for which ALevel Mathematics would not be an acceptable entrance requirement. Why Mathematics?Research has shown that people with a postGCSE qualification in Mathematics are very employable. A Mathematics degree is very desirable and can lead to jobs such as engineering, computing, law, finance and communications. Mathematics also complements and assists the understanding of a number of other ALevel subjects such as Psychology, Geography, the Sciences, Economics and Business Studies. Requirements to study MathematicsStudents wishing to study Mathematics at ALevel are expected to have achieved a grade 7, 8 or 9 at either GCSE or iGCSE level. Examination Structure and Content OverviewThe Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced GCE in Mathematics consists of three externallyexamined papers. Students must complete all assessments in May/June in any single year, most commonly, all 3 papers are taken at the end of U6.
Further MathematicsFurther Mathematics is taken in conjunction with Mathematics and is an additional qualification. It is particularly useful for those pupils who wish to pursue careers in Mathematics, the Sciences, Engineering, Computing and Finance. For some courses at some universities this may be a requirement. Requirements to study Further MathematicsStudents wishing to study Further Mathematics at ALevel are expected to have achieved a grade 9 at GCSE or iGCSE. In exceptional cases, a grade 8 may be considered. Examination Structure and Content OverviewThe Further Mathematics ALevel builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding established in the GCSE course and the Level 3 Mathematics course. Assessments throughout the course will be designed to reward students for demonstrating the ability to provide responses that draw together different areas of their knowledge, skills and understanding from across the full course of study for both the Level 2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics programs. Problem solving, proof and mathematical modelling will be assessed in Further Mathematics in the context of the extensive knowledge which students taking the course will have studied. The Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced GCE in Further Mathematics consists of four externallyexamined papers. Students must complete all assessments in May/June in any single year.
