Reasons to take Further Maths

1. Top Universities prefer students who have taken AS or A2 Further Mathematics.  It sets you apart from the crowd.  Imperial College: “We recommend you take Maths and Further Maths as competition for places is intense”.

2. They often give a lower offer onto a course, i.e. if it is AAA onto a course at Queen Mary Westfield it would be AAB, or even ABB at the University of York.

3. Some Universities offer a cash scholarship of up to £500 for each “A” Grade in Maths or Further Maths.

All Students must also choose Single Mathematics/Statistics preferably from the A Block
