The Further Mathematics Support Programme offers live online support courses in AS and A2 Further Mathematics for mature, gap-year students and home-based students. The courses, which are designed to supplement students’ independent study, include:
From October 2016 lectures will be offered for the following units:
There is also an online course for the Maths Admissions Test which is used as an entrance exam by several universities. There is a separate application form for this course; please see the MAT support page for details.
Students enrolled on an AS or A2 course will receive access to the lectures and resources for 3 of these units. To access 6 units students will need to enrol on both AS and A2 Further Mathematics. Students may select alternative applied modules to those offered. Students will receive access to the Integral online resources for these modules but there will be no lectures.
Students cannot study a module for Further Mathematics that has already been studied and used in the certification of A level Mathematics
It is possible to study AS/A level Further Mathematics through a specification that is different to that through which you took A level Mathematics; however you must inform your Further Mathematics exam centre of any such difference in specification.
Please note that A level Mathematics is a prerequisite for AS level Further Mathematics, or you will need to be studying both A levels at the same time. AS Further Mathematics is normally a prerequisite for A2 Further Mathematics but it is possible to study both AS Further Mathematics and A2 Further Mathematics in one year.
AS Further Mathematics and A2 Further Mathematics each cost £150. Payment for the courses must either be in full on application or may be in two equal parts - the first installment on application and the second by 31st January 2017.
Applications are now open for 2016-17. Please fill out an Application Form and send it into the FMSP office. Further details with regards to payment, and address details can be found on the form.
If you have contact with a local school or college, such as the one where you studied A level Mathematics, you might be able to enter the examination there. You might also find the information for external candidates provided by the examination boards useful:
Please e-mail [email protected] if you have any specific queries about the Further Mathematics courses for mature or gap-year students.
