Further Mathematics is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills developed when studying A-level Mathematics. It is a useful subject for students looking to study subjects such as Maths or Physics at university.
Students will need GCSE Maths at least grade 7 and also must study A Level Maths.
