If you get a grade 7 at GCSE you should seriously consider studying A Level Further Mathematics.
As maths is such a vast subject it is impossible to cover it all in one A Level. This subject develops some of the concepts met in A Level Maths and brings it to a higher plane. It attracts students who thoroughly enjoy the subject and are keen to extend their understanding and knowledge. The course is chiefly for a student who wishes to study Mathematics, Engineering or any related subject in Higher Education.
Why study A Level Further Mathematics?
This subject is designed for students with an enthusiasm for Mathematics, many of whom will go on to degrees in Mathematics, Engineering, the Sciences and Economics. Students who study this course go off to university and find the content covered and skills acquired of great benefit. 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.

What Our Students Say
Studying both Maths and Further Maths has allowed me to develop my interest in Maths and become a more independent, logical student. I would definitely recommend taking both A Levels if you have an interest in the subject as I have progressed a massive amount over the past two years, aided by the support of Carmel’s Maths teachers.
The Maths department at Carmel offers tutorials and one-to-one support and there are lots of resources to help you progress in your subjects. We had the opportunity to take part in the UKMT, a national yearly maths challenge, where you can apply your maths skills to problem solving.
I have particularly enjoyed the added complexity of Further Maths, especially the mechanics modules which provide applications to real life. By taking both Maths and Further Maths, I feel much more prepared to move onto university where I hope to study Maths and Actuarial Science.
