Further Maths can lead to a wide range of courses in both further and higher education. There are many other diverse areas where mathematical skills are recognised as invaluable and essential. If you are planning to study a mathematics based course at university, we recommend you also study A Level Further Maths too.

If you are considering a Mathematics or Engineering based degree you may find that some universities will actually require that you have studied A Level Further Maths. It is also good for those students who are considering applying for a competitive degree course, for example, Oxbridge entry.
