AS Further Mathematics over 2 years

AS Further Mathematics is a valuable qualification that is accessible to all students capable of passing A level Mathematics. For some students, who do not wish to study a full A level, the opportunity to study AS Further Mathematics over a two year period alongside their A level Mathematics course will allow them sufficient time to develop their understanding.

It is well worth considering offering AS Further Mathematics over two years for several reasons:

  • It is an ideal preparation for students planning to go on to a degree in any STEM subject.
  • As well as introducing students to topics such a matrices and complex numbers, which will certainly be useful to them on their degree courses, it also improves their mathematical fluency. This often helps them to improve their A level Mathematics grade.
  • Many university departments in mathematically-rich subjects encourage or require students to take Further Mathematics qualifications. See the universities section for more information.
  • It may increase the accessibility and uptake of further mathematics in your school/college.
